“So to see some of the young guys come in and take their chance bodes really well for the future in the one-day game. It was actually a very fitting end to the summer. And it s now going to be a big test for the one-day team in India.”

Strauss said he was confident of England performing well in Indian conditions. He said, “I m sure they will go there with confidence and excitement that they can do something quite special.
