A.J. Strauss 100 v West IndiesBack to boards

Sir Andrew Strauss' first One-Day International hundred came in England's seven-wicket defeat to West Indies in 2004.

The England batsman entered the crease with his side struggling with a score of 27-2.

Once Rob Key departed with the side 54-3, Strauss - alongside Andrew Flintoff, began an onslaught of the Windies' attack.

Their partnership of 226 saw both Strauss and Flintoff score centuries with the former scoring his only Lord's ODI hundred off 116 balls, hitting eight fours and two sixes.

Strauss' innings came to an end when he was caught by Dwayne Bravo off the bowling of Chris Gayle as England set a target of 286.

West Indies through Gayle's century of his own, would go on to chase down the target with five balls left.
