williamjm Posted May 14, 2015 Share Posted May 14, 2015 I like Strauss and always have, although with the spectre of KP still hanging over the team perhaps someone further removed from that debacle would have been a better choice. Really it was irresponsible of Graves to raise the KP issue when he did. I agree, I think KP is justified in feeling aggrieved about the mixed messages from the ECB (and if KP has the moral high ground you know somebody has made a bad mistake) but it's not Strauss' fault that those encouraging comments were made several weeks before Strauss was linked with the job. In non-KP news the squad for the first Test has been announced with the only change being Adam Lyth replacing Jonathan Trott (Mark Wood could potentially make a debut as well but I'm not sure how much chance he has of playing). I haven't seen Lyth play before so I'll be interested in seeing how he does, at least they're picking a specialist opener this time which should help a bit.
