Andrew Strauss saved by customary Windies charity

All smiles (for now)

Andrew Strauss has become the latest England cricket captain to be saved by the generosity of the Windies on one of their early summer tours.

England beat the tourists to clinch the series 2-0, whilst Strauss hit two centuries in two games despite going fifty without one beforehand.

He therefore joins the long list of those who have had their painful tenures excruciatingly prolonged by the Windies showing as much application as English footballers at a major international tournament.

A triumphant Strauss added, “Being compared against the West Indies and the England football team in the same summer would make anyone look competent.

“What with Euro 2012 starting soon I’m going to seem like a tactical genius quicker than you can say ‘Hodgson out’.”
