Strauss not eyeing personal glory
England skipper Andrew Strauss insists he is only concentrating on continuing his good form and is not eyeing individual records.
Strauss was under pressure going into the Test series against West Indies after a barren spell with the bat. However, the experienced opener hit back with back-to-back centuries at Lord's and Trent Bridge.
The 35-year-old has now hit 21 Test centuries, only one behind Geoffrey Boycott, Colin Cowdrey and Wally Hammond. Strauss is one ahead of Kevin Pietersen and two in front of Alastair Cook in the race to become England's most prolific centurion.
Strauss insisted personal records are not driving him and feels his current tally is no great feat considering the amount of Test cricket played in the modern era.
"It doesn't really mean that much right now. These are the kind of things you look back on at the end of your career, when you want to judge where you've been in the scheme of things," he said.
"It's a different game now - we play a lot more cricket. Anyway, when you look at how many Sachin (Tendulkar) has got (51) - you can see that 20 isn't that many."
Strauss is currently 125 not out at lunch on the third day of the second Test at Trent Bridge, with his side 340-6 in reply to West Indies' first innings total of 370.
