Everyone remembers Nasser and Vaughan falling on their swords to Graeme Smith in 03 and 08. With Strauss now hugely under the microscope, will Mr Smith be feasting his eyes on a third successive victim?
I personally agree with Bob Willis - Strauss will endeavour to keep going until the Ashes and a third win in a row. Then again I remember myself saying this time four years ago that I thought Vaughan would aim to do the same thing with regards to winning the 09 Ashes.
I can personally see us returning to form at home this summer but bad omens do strange things to sportsmen. You have to think the sight of smith will give Strauss a bad feeling. Thoughts?
