Strauss out of tune

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

IAN Bell was a pop­u­lar tip to be Shane Warne’s 700th Test cricket scalp, but even­tual vic­tim Andrew Strauss also had plenty of ‘form’.

Yes­ter­day was the eighth time since last year’s Ashes se­ries in Eng­land that Warne had dis­missed the opener.

Warne went on to wreck­the the English in­nings, tak­ing 5-39.

‘‘There are prob­a­bly 699 other guys who felt pretty bad af­ter get­ting out to Shane Warne and I’m no dif­fer­ent to­day,’’ Strauss said.

‘‘It’s ob­vi­ously a great achieve­ment for him and some­thing that will live long in many peo­ple’s mem­o­ries, but prob­a­bly not (in) mine.’’
