Strauss For King
NWG is very pleased that Andrew Strauss has made it into the final shortlist for ICC cricketer of the year.
Here are the reasons why he should win it:
1. He won the Ashes (rare).
2. He was the only batsman (for a while anyway) who knew how to score centuries.
3. He is the only batsman in the England side that keeps his head when all around him lose theirs.
4. Mitchell Johnson shouldn't get it because he forgot how to bowl. That's not impressive.
5. Mahendra Dhoni has plenty of time to win it because he's still young.
6. Gautam Gambhir can win Test player of the year. Don't be greedy.
