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 Friday’s 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.
