England batsman Kevin Pietersen has revealed he "would love to have another go" at captaining the one-day side if Andrew Strauss stepped down as skipper.
Rumours are circulating that 34-year-old Strauss is set to relinquish his role following the recent World Cup to focus on his Test duties.
And Pietersen, who led the side in both formats for less than six months in 2008-09, admits he would relish the opportunity to take the reins.
"If the one-day job becomes available, I would definitely be up for it," he told the Daily Mirror.
"A lot of water has passed under the bridge since I last did it and it's something I've thought about in the past few weeks since the rumours surfaced about Andy Strauss stepping down.
"Second time around I think I could do a real good job as I'd be older and wiser, and would handle a few things a lot differently.
"I didn't think I was too bad first time around - we had our moments against South Africa, and it took a century of freakish brilliance from Sachin Tendulkar to deny us a famous Test win in Chennai.
"So if the opportunity came up and I was asked I would say 'thank you very much, I would love to have another go'."
