No complacency, insists Andrew Strauss

England captain Andrew Strauss has said that he isn't thinking about whitewashing India in the current Test series, saying that he's only taking one match at a time: what a clichè, eh?

England are currently 2-0 up after demolishing MS Dhoni's men at Trent Bridge yesterday, skittling them all out in less than a day's play after building an almost impossible total of 478 to catch, but Strauss wants to nip any complacency in the bud and make sure they win the third Test at Edgbaston. If they do that then England will officially become the number one test side in the world. Happy days.

'We don't look at it like that,' said Strauss. 'All we're looking to do is turn up at Edgbaston to try to win that Test match. We've had to work very hard to win these two and we don't expect it to be any different from that.

'One of the real measures of a good side is whether they are able to come back from difficult circumstances. Most sides are pretty good when they've got everything their own way. But in the last two Test matches we've had to dig pretty deep and it gives me a lot of pride to see guys putting their hands up and delivering when it matters. It also fills me with a lot of confidence for the future that we can go on and become a better side.'
