Australia's Saviour As Captain?

Australian cricket needs a new captain to save them. No, I'm not talking about the appointment of Cameron White to replace Michael Clarke who stepped down as T20 captain for Australia. That's a cop-out from someone who has been recognised as a leader and he walks away from one form of the game and he's not even 30 years old yet. Clarke's not leadership material IMHO.

I've got the answer. Australia should go after Andrew Strauss. Ok, he's South African who now calls England home. But he's married to an Australian girl. Surely we could rush through Australian citizenship before the next test match in August. If cricket-loving John Howard was still prime minister I'm sure he would support it.

Next problem would be getting Alistair Cook and Jimmy Anderson to become Aussies too.
