Strauss Recalls Best & Worst Memories Of Playing India...In The Same Game - Cricket World TV

Andrew Strauss tells us that his best and worst memories of playing against India come from the same game, when he scored a century in both innings but ended up on the losing side.

In 2008, Strauss scored 123 in England's first innings and then 108 in the second innings of the first Test in Chennai.

However, unusually, he was not able to celebrate this feat with a win as Sachin Tendulkar stroked an unbeaten 103 to guide India to a six-wicket win.

Interestingly, in this video, filmed at the Test Match Ball in London during the Test series, Strauss says Tendulkar score an unbeaten 150 - although he batted so well, we can forgive his memory playing a few tricks on him.

He adds that England-India series are always well contested, and he predicted the same for this Test series, which certainly proved to be the case.
