Kevin Pietersen Quits

Kevin Pietersen has quit as England's cricket captain, according to Sky News sources.



Reports that Pietersen has quit as captain


Reports have suggested both Pietersen and coach Peter Moores were facing the sack over a rift between the pair.
Former England bowler Alex Tudor told Sky News: "This is a real shock.
"I know a lot pundits and professionals and ex players who say that the captain generally gets his way and the coach is probably the one that goes."
Middlesex spinner Shaun Udal added: "He's only been in the job for a short time.
"I don't know why... but it's obviously something Kevin feels very strongly about."
Moores and Pietersen have had major differences of opinion on the way forward for the England team just five months into their working relationship.
The England and Wales Cricket Board met for an emergency meeting on the crisis last night.
Sky News sports presenter Jacquie Beltrau said: "England cricket is pretty angry the whole row became public.
"They don't like their washing dirty linen in public. They wanted to keep this behind closed doors.
"It hasn't been kept behind closed doors - and Kevin Pietersen has been quite outspoken about the whole thing.
"It seems like he's probably thought if they're not going to back me I'm going to go."
England are scheduled to fly out to the Caribbean in two weeks - and face Australia in the Ashes later this year.

If it is true then it is such a shame. I fancied him to lead England well against the Aussie's this summer

Re: Kevin Pietersen Quits

Strauss always seems like a decent bloke so hopefully everyone will unite with him in charge. He captained us well once before too.

The immediate problem is that he never plays in the one day games, so either they'll have to start picking him, or have a different one day captain, but I don't know how well that will work if we have a stand-in coach or even no coach on the West Indies tour.
