English cricketer Kevin Pietersen says he will consider boycotting September's Champions Trophy tournament in Pakistan.

The International Cricket Council has refused to shift the tournament despite security concerns raised by several countries.

England's cricket board is yet to decide whether it will still send a team.

Pietersen says he does not want to go, but would prefer the decision to be taken out of his hands.

"The ECB have got an emergency meeting and they'll be making a decision there which will hopefully be taken out of the players' hands, and if not I'll have to make a decision," he said.

"And I don't think pressure should be put on any individual, especially when you realise your life could be at risk.

"It's only a game, it's sport and it's my job. And I'm not going to risk my life for the job that I do, I promise you that."
