    A chat with Andrew Strauss

    Andrew Strauss, two-time entrant in Glenn McGrath's Ashes target list, until recently in the captaincy role of being a stand-in for the stand-in for the stand-in before he was replaced as England captain, is interviewed by Sue Mott in the Daily Telegraph.

    I especially liked this bit
    "You know," he wheedled in mitigation, "you get into hotel mode when you're on tour. We spend an inordinate amount of time in hotels, maybe 300 out of 365 days. When you're peckish, you order room service. You don't have to do those chores that annoy you. So you get home, you put your feet up on the sofa, you want some food and you say, 'Ruth, can you get me a sandwich?' And she said, 'No, I can't'. I got put back in my place pretty quickly.

    "It's a shock for an hour or so, and then you remember the good thing is you're only a month away from room service again."
