Strauss refusing to rest on laurels
England captain Andrew Strauss feels there is more to come from his side after they wrapped up victory over West Indies on Monday.
England's nine-wicket victory means they have taken the series with one match still to go as the players will renew battle at Edgbaston on June 7. The hosts have been made to work hard in both Tests against the Windies this summer and the games have followed a similar pattern to those on Australia's recent tour to the Caribbean, when they competed well for large periods but were ultimately defeated by the Baggy Greens. Strauss was delighted with his side's effort in Nottingham but feels there is still room for England to be a bit more ruthless. "You always like to be a bit more clinical than you have been," he told Sky Sports. "We've had match-winning positions where we could have really finished the games earlier than we have. "But being made to work hard, it makes it feel pretty good when you actually get over the line." And the Middlesex man paid tribute to Darren Sammy's side, who refused to lay down despite constant pressure from the number one-ranked five-day side. "We're obviously delighted to get over the line but again it was quite hard work in this Test match," he added. "We'd gotten ourselves in position where we felt where we could really take this game by the scruff of the neck but all credit to the West Indies, they came back at us there."
