Ian Bell is too short obviously.

I agree with your point about KP. When you look at it, surely he had to the best option if England really wanted to keep it down to 2 captains.

Flower as good as said it wasn't ideal to have 3 captains and Pietersen gave them a real option to avoid this.

Flower's not stupid, he has obviously deliberately overlooked Pietersen for a reason.

Taking this into account I can only assume it's for one of two reasons:-

1) Andy Flower was on board during the Peter Moores affair and doesn't feel he can have a proper working relationship with, or trust KP.

2) The England management are that unhappy with Pietersen's early return from the world cup and general attitude towards playing, that they are deliberately snubbing him and possibly thinking about giving him the boot.

The more I think about this, the more I'm convinced this will become a 'watch this space' story.

The third option Dean could be that they want to give KP a kick up the arse; making him mad so that he will start to perform to the level his ability demands

Well done Vim - that must be it. The England selectors are shortists (is that even a word?).
