    And Strauss doesn't play and miss?! I've never seen a batsman survive more plays and misses than Strauss in his first test series against NZ. It happened soo often I was pulling my hair out !!

    You can't underestimate Astle in onedayers. Just look at his ODI record. 14 ODI centuries (from memory)

    His record is nothing special really and considering he's an opener his strike-rate is pretty poor - just look at Trescothick's ODI record. I can't remember what he's like as a fielder but I'd assume Astle isn't as good as Strauss.

    Astle can bowl (use to be able to anyway) and is no slow poke in the field.

    that doesn't seem to bad to me (ODI stats) His SR is alright as he is a slow starter but once he gets going he can play some great strokes. Not taking anything away from Strauss.

    Depends on how he'd change his game for a Twenty20 match. Judging a Twenty20 player on his ODI stats is like judging a ODI player on his test stats. If we could get CricketMax stats, now... that might be something worth looking into.

    The point is that strauss should deffinately NOT get a berth in the team... there are a whole host who are faster scorers and better batsmen

    Better batsmen? I doubt there are many that would fit in and are as strong a fielder. Also where are everyone elses teams?
    What if i was to say Ponting?

    Need i point out the last time he played the Asian XI.....

    Yea and how great was he in India not so long ago?

    Also the game is held in ENGLAND, so of course you'd favour English players. Also Strauss has more Twenty20 experience, he scored 173 @ 34.60 with a SR of 139.51 in 2003.

    In the one dayers? Well admittedly he scored very few runs, but I think his record of never being dismissed stands him in good stead.

    For what it's worth, the last one day series he played in India (2003 TVS cup) he scored a very respectable 257 runs at 42.83 in 7 matches, including an unbeaten century and a 50. He's also ranked 1st among ODI batsmen currently and the reigning WC winning captain, which stands him in, shall we say, fairly good stead for selection in a world XI.
