    Arise Sir Andrew

    Only right to also acknowledge the Knighthood awarded to Andrew Strauss. For services to cricket and his charity work related to the sad and premature death of his wife.

    Deserved. Good egg for a Tory.

    Is he a Tory? Explains why he claimed the bounced catch from Hughes at Lord's in 09.

    'Fraid so. There was even some vague talk of him being parachuted into a safe Tory seat as MP a few years back.

    Be harder to find someone in the English team who isn't a Tory I would've thought.

    I thought that it was our AndrewB getting the knighthood.

    Set the example for all English captains to claim bump ball catches. Joe Root continues the lineage to this very day. Congratulations Sir cheatalot. #legacy

    I love how both of these knighthood threads so far have been all about posters shitting all over the respective people & giving us reasons not to like them.

    Good vibes.

    I was fine with Strauss until I found out he's a Tory. It's a character and personality defect. Not worthy.

    Boycott literally a convicted wife beater, so how he can be made a Knight is beyond me tbh

    If my understanding of Boycott's style of play is correct he usually tended to leave wide balls alone.

    Agree completely about him tbh, just thought it was a funny typo
    Allegedly banned

    A South African bloke emigrating to England as a kid, competing there at the highest level, then losing his wife at a tragically young age and then devoting himself to charity work?

    Top bloke.
