Former England spinner Phil Tufnell has said he was surprised to learn of Andrew Strauss's retirement, but backed Alastair Cook to live up to his predecessor as England's Test captain.
Wishing Straussy the best of luck in retirement. He's been a great player, a credit to England and got them to number 1 in the world...
I was surprised by the news. Thought he might go on to another Ashes series, but he's had a brilliant career.
Very pleased for another of the @paragonsm boys, Alastair Cook getting the job though. I'm sure he'll do a great job.
