By adopting the co-moving coordinate system, an exact axially symmetric cosmological model with string dust cloud source is obtained in the framework of Brans-Dicke [Phys. Rev. 124, 925, (1961) Scalar – tensor theory of gravitation. Some physical and kinematical properties of the model are also discussed.
