Michael Yardy reminds of Andrew Strauss by his style of play.
His rite of passage was against the Bangladeshis at Hove, where he scored 257 - the highest score by a Sussex batsman against a touring team. Continuing his good form in the 2005 season he was finally selected for the England A tour of West Indies.
Although he lacked form abroad his performances on the county circuit have done enough to earn him a place in England's 30-man squad for the Champions Trophy.
