Strauss: Pakistan must not win series

London, Sept.22 (ANI): With the one-day series between England and Pakistan even at two all, skipper Andrew Strauss says losing the fifth and final confrontation with Pakistan would bring not only pain and anger, but also a sense of terrible injustice.

“We have to put in a massive performance at the Rose Bowl to try to secure the series win. The guys just want to get the series over and done with and finish with a victory. It is a final for us and when the big games come along, England are often at our best - like when we won the World Twenty20 earlier this year. Let’s hope that is the case here,” The Sun quoted Strauss, as saying.”We need to focus on the cricket now to make sure we get the best out of ourselves. We’ll be ready to finish the summer on a high. Everything that has happened has brought the guys closer together,” he added.”Hopefully that will help us this winter because the Australia tour will be tough and if we can get through things like this, we’ll be stronger,” Strauss said.
