London, Mar 19: English selectors have snubbed Kevin Pietersen once again and named Paul Collingwood to lead the side for ODI series against West Indies in place of injured skipper Andrew Strauss.
The move has ended Pietersen’s hopes of getting another chance to lead the side, even as a stand-in captain, The Sun reports.
Essex opener Alastair Cook has already been appointed Strauss’ No. 2 in Test cricket.
Pietersen, sacked as skipper in January, has said that he would like to lead England again.
