Millions and Millions and Millions

Nightwatchgirl was all for Andrew Strauss becoming England's new captain; to instill some continuity and lack of ego into the team.

That was until now.

Strauss, presumably being repeatedly hounded by press asking him about KP, has decided that KP won't just waltz (or ice skate) back into the team, unnerved by recent events; he won't just twirl his way back into good books of all England fans, he will go to the West Indies and "score millions of runs," (imagine the score: 1,000,100-4).

Now Strauss, NWG knows you must be under a lot of pressure, but there is never an excuse for hyperbole. Leave KP to dig his own hole and you just get on with what you need to.

I expect Strauss to at least equal Pietersen's tally. He needs to set a decent example and prove that he's the right man for the job.

If not, I'll settle for him batting in a deerstalker and smoking jacket. I'm not fussy.

NWG thinks Dave is in the fashion business. If ever the ECB are looking for someone to re-design the Test outfits, your name will be the first in line.

Strauss would look good in tweed.

Tweed! Genius. And maybe some shiny black shoes.
