Absolutely, definitely.”However, Strauss added: “We have to recognise that, although we have two captains who have wider responsibilities than just themselves, they are still human beings at the end of the day and still subject to all the same thoughts and concerns as anyone else. – Safe to go -================= “The persuasion is that we feel its safe to go.”I genuinely believe that and that is why Im encouraging every player to use that incredibly detailed and experienced viewpoint from Reg to make a judgement.”If he says its safe to go somewhere its safe, and if (he says) it isnt, it isnt.”Nevertheless, Strauss stressed: “I cannot literally force people up the steps and say you have to go to Bangladesh.”Strauss said players would have to weigh up the pros and cons for themselves.”I think, at its most simple (level), the big consequence for not going is you are giving someone else an opportunity to step into your shoes and stake a claim for themselves.”Thats just the same as if someone gets injured…If someone does really well, then you cant give any guarantees (over selection).”Strauss, however, said he had no great concerns over players ongoing uncertainty following his own experience of being a member of the England squad that continued with the 2008 tour of India following the deadly Mumbai terror attacks.advertisement”It doesnt actually (concern me), having been through this myself, after the Mumbai bombings.”In my own mind, intellectually coming to the decision — if Reg says its safe to go somewhere, who am I to say otherwise — in hindsight, it looks like a very simple and obvious one.”But it still took me some time to get there at that point, and theres no reason to expect a lot of these young guys, who are going through this for the first time, to make an on-the-spot decision.” AFP SSC SSClast_img read more
