England endured a crushing final Test defeat to South Africa that allowed the hosts to retain the Basil DÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Oliveira trophy.
Speaking after the conclusion of Sunday’s Test, Strauss said that he believes a draw is a good result for England.
“The way we played over the four Tests, we did pretty well to earn a one-all,” Strauss told Sky Sports. “South Africa were ahead in three of the four Tests, so to come out at one-all is a good result for us.”
He added: “I think you’ve got to give a lot of credit to Graeme [Smith, the South Africa captain] and his team, they didn’t give us a sniff in this Test match,”
Finally he admitted that the manner of the defeat was hard to take.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We’re a little bit disappointed with our performance in this game and leave the tour with a little bit of a bitter taste in our mouths.Ã¢â‚¬Â
