Jimmy Anderson hailed Andrew Strauss as the 'best captain' he has had and a 'really great bloke' after his former England team-mate was awarded a knighthood.

The seamer said Strauss should be 'hugely proud' after being recognised in former Prime Minister Theresa May's resignation honours list.

Strauss played exactly 100 Tests for England between 2004 and 2012, scoring more than 7,000 runs at an average of 40.91 and captaining his country to two Ashes series wins and the number one spot in the ICC world rankings.
