Captain Colly happy to plan a Caribbean crusade

PAUL COLLINGWOOD says he is geared to leading England&rsquo;s quest for major international honours next year &ndash; even though he has not officially been installed as captain.<br /><br />Collingwood led England through this summer&rsquo;s World Twenty20 on home soil but his mandate as captain for the shortest form of the game officially ends after today&rsquo;s international with Australia at Old Trafford.<br /><br />Selectors currently have one eye on next year&rsquo;s World Twenty20 in the West Indies in April, although there has yet to be a formal announcement to determine the long-term leadership of the side. Collingwood, however, insists he remains focused on the job at hand and will oversee the role until he is ordered otherwise.<br /><br />&ldquo;I&rsquo;m pretty clear on my role,&rdquo; said Collingwood. &ldquo;I was captain for the World Twenty20 and I&rsquo;ve been selected as captain for the two Twenty20s against Australia. So until I&rsquo;m told otherwise, I want to lead England into the next Twenty20 World Cup. I&rsquo;m happy with that arrangement and unless someone tells me otherwise, I look forward to my job captaining the side.&rdquo;<br /><br />England are expected to stick with the same XI which started the abandoned Twenty20 international on Sunday.
