London, May 24: England Test captain Andrew Strauss has said that beating reigning world champions India at home is a much bigger achievement than winning the Ashes.

Strauss, who led England to back-to-back Ashes victories, said winning against top teams like India and South Africa is the next level of development for them as a cricketing nation.

"Increasingly for us, although we will always value the Ashes, it is important to look beyond, at India and South Africa, to look to defeat these guys consistently, too, home and away," he said.

"I've never beaten India in a Test series and if we want to be the best side in the world we've got to start by doing that. I'd say to win in India would be bigger than winning the Ashes in Australia because the conditions are even more foreign," Strauss told 'Daily Mail'. PTI
