No pressure on Strauss - Flower

Andy Flower says there is "no extra pressure" on captain Andrew Strauss going into the Test series against Sri Lanka despite the success of his understudy Alastair Cook in leading the one-day team.

Strauss led England to a 3-0 Test series defeat in the UAE, while Cook was captain when England won all four ODI matches.

The England coach believes his team are "always being scrutinised" but that Strauss is "comfortable" with where he is as Test captain, though adds he expects Strauss "to score a lot of runs on this tour".

England's Test series against Sri Lanka begins in Galle on Monday 26 March.
