Captain Strauss feeling the pressure?
William Hill offer 11/ 4 that Andrew Strauss will NOT start as England's 1st Test match against South Africa on August 2 - and 1/ 4 that he will lead the side into that game. ‘Strauss is coming under pressure since his current moderate run of form began, and there will be those calling for his head before long if his own and the team's performances do not improve' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
But England are given the same 2/1 chance of winning the 2nd Test v Sri Lanka by Hills as the home side, also quoted at 2/1, with the draw made 6/4 favourite for that match.
Will Strauss be skipper for first Test versus South Africa this Summer? - 1/ 4 YES; 11/4 NO
2nd Test versus Sri Lanka - 2/1 Sri Lanka; 2/1 England; 6/4 draw.
