Strauss flat after bore draw
England captain Andrew Strauss said: "My personal opinion is that is not good for Test cricket."
He added: "That wicket remained incredibly flat throughout the game, and if anything it was probably flatter on Monday than any other day.
"As cricketers you want to see a wicket that deteriorates as the game goes on. We didn't see that in this game and as a result it ended up being a fairly boring draw, which I don't think anyone wants to see.
"Generally, even if you can't force a result, you want a pretty tight tussle like Antigua last week where you can nearly force a result. Clearly here that would have been very difficult to do.
"You had eight, nine, 10 bowlers bowling on it and no-one really looked particularly threatening.
"So I wouldn't blame the quality of the bowling by any means.
"Certainly, from our own bowlers' point of view, they toiled exceptionally well - the way they continued in the right areas session after session after session was great testament to the control they have."
