Strauss gets out driving outside the off-stump. He barely ever gets out to a seamer any other way. Here's his last ten dismissals this summer:
c&b Hauritz at Lord's. Out to a spinner.
Caught slip off Lee at the Oval. Out driving loosely outside off stump.
Caught slip off North at the Oval. Out to a spinner, but still driving outside off.
Caught behind off Hilfenhaus at the Oval. Out poking outside off stump.
Lbw to Hilfenhaus at Headingley.
Caught slip off Siddle at Headingley. Driving loosely outside off stump.
Caught behind off Hilfenhaus at Edgbaston. Trying to cut a full ball outside off stump.
Caught slip off Hauritz at Lord's. Driving loosely outside off stump.
Bowled Hilfenhaus. Brain fade on 161.
Caught behind off Hauritz at Cardiff. Cutting a full ball outside off stump.
I wonder about Australia's plans. In test matches it's hard because he's become excellent at leaving the ball- you really need someone who can get the ball to straighten from around the wicket. In ODIs you can just float it out there full and wide and let him get himself out. The number of balls he's had on his pads is shocking.
