London: Legendary West Indian batsman Viv Richards has high hopes from the current England cricket team and expects them to be at the top in the coming years.

"England are well led by Andrew Strauss and this is a team that has the potential to create a legacy," he was quoted as saying by a news agency.

"They have done their homework and found a solid wicket-taking bowling unit which is of vital importance at this level."

Richards believes that the supremacy will depend on their ability to dish out solid performances in away series, especially in the subcontinent conditions.

"It is up to the individuals, but in order to become legendary and great you must be able to win in all conditions," he said.

"It is not just getting it done at home, it is going to places like India and Pakistan and getting a result.”

"You don`t necessarily have to win, drawing a series can be a good result. It`s like football where away from home, a point is just as vital,” he added.

England recently defeated West Indies 2-0 at home in a three-match Test series- the last of which ended in a draw due to rain.
