Strauss defiant despite defeat
Andrew Strauss says England will learn from their mistakes in the first Test after an innings and 12 runs defeat to South Africa.
England needed to bat all day on Monday to save the Oval Test but they were unable to do so as the tourists dominated with the ball again.
Strauss' side were eventually bowled out for 240 in their second innings to give South Africa an impressive victory in the first Test of the three-match series.
The action goes to Headingley next between August 2-6 and skipper Strauss insists his players will bounce back in Leeds as they look to stay in contention in the Series.
"We have some regrets and a lot of frustrations. Credit to South Africa they didn't allow us to get back into the game and the concentration their batsmen showed was outstanding," he said on Sky Sports.
"There are lessons there to be learned and we'll learn them before next week. The guys will be determined to show more in the next Test and I'm sure they will."
Strauss added: "We'll regroup and come back stronger. We must learn from our mistakes. We have to win the next two games and I have total belief we can do that," he added.
