London: England Test captain Andrew Strauss has vowed to play in the next two Ashes series, as he believes he has the `drive and determination` to do so.

Strauss admits that he does not know whether he will lead England into the 2013 Ashes series, although he insisted yesterday that it was his intention to do so.

Having relinquished the one-day captaincy and retired from that form of the game, Strauss`s international representation is now limited to the long form.

The Independent quoted him as saying: "I`ve still got a huge amount of drive and determination to take the Test team forward."

He added: "I think that``s an important starting point. I also think there``s no reason why I can``t work alongside Alastair and Stuart in mapping out the future of our team in all forms of the game."

"I think it`s wrong to look too far ahead," he said.
