Strauss out for 15 as his shaky start to season continues

The England captain continues to look rusty as his poor start to the English domestic season continues.

Andrew Strauss, the England captain who opted out of his side's tour to Bangladesh, continues to look rusty as his poor start to the English domestic season continued yesterday. Strauss, who resumed on 10 overnight in Middlesex's championship match with Worcestershire, fell for 15 after making only a single in his first innings. The left-hander spent just three quarters of an hour at the crease during a match in which he faced 38 balls. Middlesex plunged to a 111-run defeat at New Road.
