Pietersen backs ECB's 'fascinating' triple captaincy plan

England batsman Kevin Pietersen reckons England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB)'s decision to split captaincy at the international level between Andrew Strauss, Alastair Cook and Stuart Broad was "fascinating", but added "no-one knows whether it's going to work".

Strauss remains at the helm of the Test side, but his decision to step away from the one-day cricket has led to Cook being put in charge of the 50-over team and Broad being given the Twenty20 job instead of Paul Collingwood.

The decision makes England the first nation in world cricket to name different captains for the three formats of the game.

"It's fascinating, we've now got three captains," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Pietersen, as saying.

"It's the first time it's ever been done, but they are young with fresh ideas and Andy Flower has had some good ideas so let's hope this is another one."

"The three are going to have to put a lot of work in and no-one knows whether it's going to work, so let's see how it goes," he added.
