Kevin Pietersen's remarkable career took its latest and arguably the most dramatic turn on Monday when he was named England cricket captain.

The South African-born batsman will lead England in test, one-day and Twenty20 matches, starting with the fourth test against South Africa this week.

The appointment came a day after Michael Vaughan's sudden resignation and caps a remarkable rise for the 28-year-old Pietersen, who was viewed as the enfant terrible of English cricket when he made his debut against Australia three years ago.

He has since toned down his outspoken comments - and outrageous haircuts - to become one of the team's most reliable members.
