Kevin Pietersen wants to England captain again: Kevin Pietersen says he “would love to have another go” at captaining England if Andrew Strauss steps down as one-day skipper, according to The Sun report.
Strauss is mulling over his role following the recent Cricket World Cup and Pietersen, who led the side in both formats for less than six months in 2008-09, would happily step into his shoes.
He said: “If the one-day job becomes available, I would definitely be up for it.
“A lot of water has passed under the bridge since I last did it and it’s something I’ve thought about in the past few weeks since the rumours surfaced about Andy Strauss stepping down.
“Second time around I think I could do a real good job as I’d be older and wiser, and would handle a few things a lot differently.
“I didn’t think I was too bad first time around – we had our moments against South Africa, and it took a century of freakish brilliance from Sachin Tendulkar to deny us a famous Test win in Chennai.
“So if the opportunity came up and I was asked I would say ‘thank you very much, I would love to have another go’.”
