Default Andrew Strauss

Can anyone explain why he was picked over Hussain or Thorpe? His one-day average is 26 with a single century. Another interesting fact, he's born in South Africa

Well, Andrew Strauss has a 40+ average in First-Class cricket which proves that he has been a decent-enough batsman in the county circuit. His cricinfo profile further says that he scored 1400 runs in the 2003 season. Husain has retired from ODIs, (he has a pathetic record in ODIs anyway), and Thorpe has yet not been drafted into the ODI team since they are looking for younger players.

Strauss has basically replaced Vikram Solanki. If Strauss can't prove his mettle in another few games, he will have to make way for another player

*there are many waiting on the fringes*

Didn't you say you're a Middlesex fan? ..dunno why you're complaining?Andrew Strauss captained the north London outfit last summer and been playing for them for a while now. He's more of a grafter and English hierarchy may think he'll compliment Tresco well. What else...He's a South African isn't an issue after 'Kolpac ruling'.....only trouble is english qualification and counties should do something about it.

Thorpe has also retired from odi cricket, becuase of wear and tear, couple of summers ago. And the english always seem to have players that werent originally from england, e.g Hussain, Caddick, Craig White, Strauss, Geraint jones, tudor usman afzaal, aftab habib, etc

I never said that i didn't think Strauss was good I just didn't think at the time he should have been selected. I still believe picking him for the one day team was wrong, however well he did after i still believe originally he wasn't good enough to be picked. It was the same with Mushfiqur and the England series. He had terrible statistics, a nobody and it was stupid of them to add another potential Mahmud however he did well. I'm glad now as I really am a fan of Strauss. He's captain of my county of course i'm a fan

I did. I watched it from first ball to last, as I went to every day of the Test.

You're going to be watching Andrew Strauss for a long time. And he's going to be batting for a long time.

One weakness though - plays uppishly and without complete confidence when hitting to leg.

Is Habibul Fan a Middlesex fan? So am I.
