KP likely to lead England again

Guyana: 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.
