Andrew Strauss positive about Somerset switch

England Test captain and Middlesex opener Andrew Strauss is optimistic his unusual temporary move to play for Somerset against India will help him find some form with the bat ahead of the upcoming Test series against the tourists.

Strauss, who has retired from limited-over internationals, only managed to score 27 runs in four innings in the recent Test series against Sri Lanka and explains there was limited match practice available to him with Middlesex.

The Test series against India starts at Lord's on Thursday 21 July.
