Andrew Strauss drops himself and selects 11 bowlers for second Test

England captain Andrew Strauss has been forced into drastic action following the latest dismal showing by the batsmen in a Test match.

England collapsed to defeat against Sri Lanka earlier, making it four losses on the trot and making the side quite probably the least fearsome number one team in the world ever.

In response, Strauss has decided to drop all of the batsmen – especially himself – and pick 11 bowlers, including Graeme Swann and Stuart Broad twice each.

Doubling up

Strauss noted, “They let themselves down a bit in the final innings where some of the batsmen actually scored more runs than they did.

“But I’m confident my decision will be the right one come the second Test.

“They can’t be any worse than the top six have been this winter, can they?”
