England captain Andrew Strauss says his team "will have to work very hard" to beat India in third Test at Edgbaston.

Andrew Strauss has insisted that England will not get ahead of themselves as they edge closer to a Test series victory over India.

The national side need to triumph at Edgbaston to win the series and be crowned world number one Test team, but Strauss has calmed expectations.

"We don't look at it like that - all we are looking to do is turn up at Edgbaston and try and win that Test match," The Telegraph quotes Strauss as saying.

"We have had to work very hard to win these two Tests, and we don't expect anything different next week."

The England captain led his team to a 319-run victory against India in the second Test, with one day to spare.

All-rounder Tim Bresnan scored his first five-wicket haul during the match, while Ian Bell racked up a century and Stuart Broad was named man of the match.
