7. Captain Strauss

Strauss captain

7. Captain Strauss – Strauss cemented his place in the side after that 177 and after a solid two years, he was made captain in 2009 for the series against the West Indies. The fall-out from the Pietersen-Moores affair meant English cricket had a lot of work to do to repair its image, and slowly but surely, Strauss helped to do that. He had an excellent personal first series as captain, averaging 67.62 with the bat, making 541 runs in the process.
