Kevin Pietersen is the new England Cricket captain.

Stumble Upon Toolbar
As predicted by the analysts Kevin Pietersen is the new captain of the England Cricket team taking over the reins from Michael Vaughan, and also Pietersen will lead the English side in all the formats of the game including the twenty twenty format. This has been a remarkable moment in Pietersen's career and time will tell how this new position will have an effect on his career. At the outset Pietersen's batting looks aggressive with a little bit of unpredictability, well for that case Cricket is always unpredictable when facing formidable opponents.

The immediate task at hand for Pietersen will be to lead the side in the fourth Test at the Oval. It will be a contratsting position for Pietersen to lead his team against a country which is his birth place. Now the performance in the second innings of the third test in which he scored a splendid 94 is anything to go by, then he should be as focussed on his new role as he was while batting. And Ravi Bopara is to play in Vaughans place at the Oval for the fourth and final test of this rubber.
