England captain Andrew Strauss admitted his second century of the series against West Indies came easier than the first one.

Strauss followed up his 122 at Lord's with an unbeaten 102 on
Saturday to help England close on 259-2 after the Windies were all out
for 370.

The left-hander had not scored a hundred in 26 attempts - a run
stretching back to November 2010 - prior to this series but his
back-to-back efforts will go a long way into silencing his detractors.

"It's a strange game," Strauss told Sky Sports. "I haven't done anything different technically.

"I think it's a big relief to have got that hundred last week and it
just felt a lot easier here today because I wasn't fighting against
myself so much.

"Your state of mind is quite a hard thing to control."
Strauss struck 18 fours in his 205-ball knock as England ended the day trailing by 111 runs with eight wickets in hand.

"(It was a) long wait for the hundred at Lord's so to get to two in two games is quite strange," Strauss added.
