England start the third and final Test on Thursday knowing only a win will stop opponents South Africa from overtaking them in the world rankings.
There are no such concerns for the Proteas, who are expected to name another unchanged side for the Third test running on British soil.
The Test is also a landmark for Strauss who is set to make his 100th appearance for his country in the unlimited overs form of the game.
"I think it is a game to savour and to be proud of," the 35-year-old said. "We do not have a lot of time throughout our careers to look back on what you have done as you are always looking forward to the next game.
"In a lot of ways, this game is no different, but I am very proud of the fact I have hung around long enough to get to 100 Test matches, and hopefully there are a few more there as well."
