I am glad Andrew Strauss is captain, i thought he should have been instead of KP. I am not a KP hater (it seems these days he polarises opinion between those who hate him and those who really hate him) but didn't like him as captain. Captains should be quieter, more considered and thoughtful. They should do the thinking to let the stars do what they are good at. So here is hoping for a bright future in 2009 for England culminating with the Ashes.
