|Strauss walks into the sun set|
"I am extremely proud of everything I have achieved as a cricketer, and I have found myself very fortunate to play in an era when some of English cricket's greatest moments have occurred. I have loved every minute of it. All that remains is for me to wish Andy, Alastair and the rest of the team the very best for the coming months. I will be an interested spectator." - Andrew StraussAlastair Cook will now take over the reigns of the English test side, as he tries to rebuild the English team back to his former glory.

"On behalf of the ECB and everyone involved in cricket I'd like to thank Andrew Strauss for his outstanding contribution to the game. "Andrew has been a highly successful captain and opening batsman for Middlesex and England, who will be remembered for leading the side to two Ashes victories and to the top of the Test rankings. He has shown tremendous integrity, dedication and commitment both on and off the field and under his leadership the side has grown immeasurably and reached new levels of professionalism. Andrew's calmness and authority when dealing with some of the most difficult moments in our sport in recent times should be applauded and I have no doubt that his contribution as an ambassador for the game will be recognised by anyone who has had an opportunity to spend time with him. His legacy within the game will be felt for many years to come and we now need to continue to build on the progress we have made under his leadership."

|KP and ECB - A marriage gone all bad|
"I can't wait to play in Straussy's 100th Test next week. These things make me happy. Winning makes me happy." - KPKevin Pietersen without any doubt is England's best player and dropping your best player in a must win match is shooting yourself in the foot. KP's knock at Headingley was one of his best in recent times, and it won him the Man of the Match award. So here is a batsman in form who loves performing against the South Africans (so much that Smith is said to put his head down when KP walks into bat) and has just treated what many consider as the world's best bowling attack wwith utter disdain in the previous match and he finds himself not selected for the next encounter. Sounds very foolish. Very, very foolish, but that is the decision the ECB has taken.
|KP says he's committed to England|
"I love cricket. India loves cricket. But you know what, I can bowl faster than Zaheer Khan."He told DNA newspaper,"I am coming there next year. I'll play in the IPL." He apparently has been honing in his cricket skills and wouldn't it be great if he actually gets to play in the league.
“I want to play in the IPL. I am working hard for it, Chris is a great friend and I follow his side very closely. I also like Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai (Super Kings). But I want to play for Royal Challengers Bangalore because of Chris.”
