142 Reasons Why Andrew Strauss Is Great

1. He's England's captain.
2. He was born in South Africa, thereby following the trend of England players/captains born in another country.
3. He's scoring runs. Like millions of them.
4. Even when England lose Test matches, he still remains positive.
5. He caught the greatest slip catch of all time in 2005. No arguments.
6. He seems friendly (unsubstantiated).
7. When he was dropped from the England team, he went to New Zealand (obviously) to get some playing time. Shows dedication.
8. He took on the captaincy when it was a heavily poisoned and radioactive chalice.
9. One of his nicknames is muppet.
10. He doesn't have a huge ego.
11. He's calm.
12. He has brown hair.
13. He went to school in Melbourne and learnt how to play cricket. Thanks Australia.
14. He can keep KP under control. What a brave man.
15. He'll be a great captain against Australia this summer.
16. NWG can think of many more, but frankly, she doesn't want to give the man an ego. Now is not a good time. Any more you can think of are welcome.
