Kevin Pietersen threatens to quit
English cricket is in turmoil following reports Kevin Pietersen has threatened to quit as captain ahead of the tour of the West Indies.
Pietersen, who only took the job last August, is reported to be unhappy working with coach Peter Moores.
Sources at the ECB told Sky Sports News Pietersen has said he will not tour the West Indies under the current regime, intimating he will not continue as captain while Moores remains as coach.
The ECB are believed to have held an emergency teleconference of their 12-man executive board on Tuesday evening to discuss the rift between coach and captain.
The outcome of those discussions appears to have prompted Pietersen to refuse to lead the West Indies tour unless Moores is removed.
