Andrew Strauss will captain England for the entire tour of the West Indies.

The Middlesex star succeeded Kevin Pietersen as skipper of the Test side last week, and has been confirmed as captain for limited-overs internationals too.

But there will be no head coach for the trip, with Strauss supported by assistant coach Andy Flower and team operations manager Phil Neale.

Strauss, 31, who has not played one-day international cricket for 18 months, said: "I am delighted to lead the team in the one-day internationals and Twenty20.

"I know I haven't played an ODI since the end of the World Cup in 2007 but I do feel that I have something to offer in that form of the game.

"Now this situation has been resolved we can now all unite and get about the business of winning matches for England and winning them consistently."

England open with a friendly against a St Kitts & Nevis Invitation XI on January 25.
