Strauss left out of first warmup

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.
