Andrew Strauss dominated social media today and here is why

On Monday, in a closed-door meeting, England Cricket Board’s director of cricket Andrew Strauss put a stop to the latest comeback bid by Kevin Pietersen.

KP was firmly told that he can’t get back in the team as he isn’t trusted by the ECB. At the same time, KP was offered the role of an adviser to the limited overs side. This decision from Andrew Strauss was met with anger, disappointment and a bit of amusement by most of the ex-cricketers.

Most ex-English cricketers sounded disappointed with the decision.

Michael Vaughan, under whom KP made his test debut, tweeted


Sir Geoff Boycott had a bit of an advice for KP, score more runs!


 

It was not just ex-England cricketers, some footballers had a say too.

Former England striker, Gary Lineker had this to say


Even the gentle Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier was a bit peeved,


 

And it was not just the English players who were tearing into Strauss. Former South African captain, Graeme Smith who has been a nightmare for English captains over the years pitched in with this gem


KP’s teammate at Surrey and Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara couldn’t resist having a go either at Strauss logic.


 

Of course with English cricket in shambles, can’t expect Australians to be far behind. They must be enjoying it a lot.

Cricket Australia just decided to remind everyone who won’t be playing the Ashes


KP’s former team-mate at Hampshire, Shane Warne couldn’t quite believe what is going on


 

Though some Aussies still want to see KP playing for England


And we save the last for a long time “Bring back KP” crusader, Piers Morgan. He summarised it with this


 

Fair to say, the first day in the new job couldn’t have gone worse for Andrew Strauss.
