Kevin Pietersen interested in regaining England captaincy
Tuesday 19 April 2011
England batsman Kevin Pietersen "would love to have another go" at captaining the side if Andrew Strauss steps down as one-day skipper.
Strauss is reportedly set to relinquish the role following the recent World Cup to focus on his Test duties and Pietersen, who led the side in both formats for less than six months in 2008-09, would happily step into his shoes.
"If the one-day job becomes available, I would definitely be up for it," he told the Daily Mirror.
"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'."
