London, Aug 17 (IANS) Former England skipper Michael Vaughan feels it is now time for the new World No.1 Test side to set their eyes on dominating the One-day International (ODI) rankings as well.

England’s innings victory at Edgbastson dislodged India from the top of the International Cricket Council’s Test world rankings and also gave them an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.

“Number one in the world is something we should all celebrate but the main thing now is to stay there,” the 36-year-old, who played his last Test in 2008, was quoted as saying in London Evening Standard.

“I really think this team now has got a great opportunity to go on and dominate Test cricket for a number of years.

“I just see the depth in this squad and I know how professional they all are.

“We also want to see them become the world number one team in one-day cricket too. That is the next challenge.

“We haven’t won a World Cup yet and I think that will be (coach) Andy Flower’s next goal,” he said.
