Strauss should've just said: 'I don't care, it's not an issue' about the Bairstow thing and then we could've just go on with being ***** at the cricket. Instead it's all gone kaboom and now Duckett has been hung out to dry. If there really is an issue with senior players/drinking culture then grow some balls and sort them out properly rather than half-arsing it and then punishing a Lions player for making Jimmy Anderson interesting off the field for once.
Duckett should just hit the T20 circuit and make his money as the England set-up has done nothing but **** him up since Bangladesh last year.
