Guyana (West Indies), Mar.18 (ANI): Kevin Pietersen is in line for a dramatic recall as England captain, just 10 weeks after being axed. According to The Sun, he could lead the side in Fridays one-dayer against West Indies here if Andrew Strauss does not recover from a hamstring strain. Paul Collingwood, who quit as England one-day captain last year, would be the other candidate.
The selectors might want to give the job back to Pietersen on a one-off basis to try to show there are no hard feelings.
Whoever leads England on Friday will have the chance to end the grim sequence of 14 major matches without a victory.
Essex batsman Alastair Cook was Strauss deputy for the Test series but is not around for the one-day games.
Strauss right hamstring was strapped yesterday and he did not take a full part in a fitness session. (ANI)
