England captain Andrew Strauss says he is focused on the second Test against Sri Lanka despite questions being raised about his future.

Defeat in the first Test in Galle was the fourth in a row for England, after the 3-0 series whitewash by Pakistan.

Strauss has scored one century in 48 Test innings, but he insisted he is not thinking about his future.

When asked whether he would think about his future should England lose the second Test, Strauss replied I'm not looking at it that way.

Strauss has struggled for form over the winter, with his last century coming against Australia in the first Ashes Test in Brisbane in November 2010.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene has said he still rates England as the number one side in the world, despite their recent struggles in the sub-continent.

The match will take place at the P.Sara Stadium, the stage for the home team's inaugural Test match in 1982.
