    Strauss to succeed Pietersen as England captain

    LONDON: Andrew Strauss will take over as England cricket captain following the resignation of Kevin Pietersen, the managing director of England cricket said on Wednesday.

    Hugh Morris also confirmed that team coach Peter Moores had been asked to
    "relinquish his role" after Pietersen''s resignation, which followed a feud between the captain and the coach.

    "The England and Wales Cricket Board have accepted with regret the resignation of Kevin Pietersen as captain," he said, reading a statement at an emergency press conference at The Oval cricket ground in London.

    But he added that Pietersen was "highly valued as a senior and experienced player and we are delighted that he has indicated that he is willing to remain part of the England team."

    Regarding Moores, Morris said the ECB had decided that he "should relinquish his role" for the good of the England cricket squad.

    Pietersen, South African born as is his replacement Strauss, had questioned the ability of Moores - who never played international cricket himself - as a coach in a dispute which became public just weeks before England depart on January 21 for their tour of the West Indies.
