Strauss’ innings

Yesterday, Strauss underlined his maturity and astonishing success, by crusing to a beautiful hundred. I’ve often said he reminds me of Langer, and the commentators at last picked up on it…

He is our new Graham Thorpe. A late starter, arguably, but has simply come into Test cricket at the right time for him. He hit a debut hundred against New Zealand this summer (on his debut), and this century against SA was his debut hundred away from England. Only the 2nd Englishman to do that feat (Michael Clarke of Australia did it very recently too). Impressive knock from the future England captain :)
