Out of form batsman Andrew Strauss has been left out of England's opening warm-up match against Bermuda, in Kingstown today.
Strauss failed to make the 13 man side along with Ravi Bopara as Michael Vaughan and Kevin Pietersen returned from injury.
Strauss had a miserable summer in Australia, averaging 19.30 in the one-day tri-series and only passing 50 on one occasion in 10 matches against Australia and New Zealand.
England 13 man side:
Michael Vaughan (capt), Ed Joyce, Ian Bell, Paul Collingwood, Andrew Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Nixon, Liam Plunkett, Sajid Mahmood, Jon Lewis, James Anderson, Monty Panesar, Jamie Dalrymple.Discuss this news item in the Cricket Web Forums
