Caddick says Pietersen self-centred captain

10:29 am on 8 January 2009

The former England fast bowler Andy Caddick says the national cricket side is better off without Kevin Pietersen leading the team.

Pietersen has resigned as captain but will continue as a player as England prepares to travel to the West Indies in a couple of weeks while England coach Peter Moores has been sacked.

Caddick says Moores has been a victim of Pietersen's egotistic behaviour.

Andrew Strauss has been appointed the new England captain.
