Strauss will be desperate to find a winning formula in the one-day series
Andrew Strauss made no excuses after another batting collapse led to a six-wicket defeat by the West Indies in the Trinidad Twenty20 international.
Dismissed for 99 in the Stanford match and 51 in the Jamaica Test, they were toppled for 121 in Trinidad on Sunday.
Strauss said: "Pretty obviously you don't win too many Twenty20s having scored 120. We lost wickets too regularly and we weren't smart enough.
"We weren't ever able to put pressure on the West Indies with the ball."
Strauss, shoehorned into the side to bat at an unfamiliar number six after nearly three years out of the national Twenty20 side, added: "It's just disappointing the way we batted.
"If we had got to 150 that would have been a decent score. It definitely wasn't an easy wicket to play your shots on but if we had just been a bit smarter and kept a few more wickets in hand then we probably would have got closer to that score.
"We need to be clearer what our game plan is individually and collectively."
The top scorer was debutant Steve Davies with 27. Strauss himself made 22 from 25 balls and noted that "not enough guys in the top order went on to score enough runs".
