London, Aug 14: Former England captain Michael Vaughan feels that England will dominate the longer version of the game for years to come.

Vaughan feels England have the weight of talent and mental strength to establish an era of supremacy in the manner of the great West Indies and Australia sides of the past.

"I really think this side are going to dominate Test cricket for a period because of their strength in depth, fitness levels, determination and the real hunger they display," Vaughan told BBC Sport.

"It is not just this 11, the depth of the 24 or 25 players England have to choose from is fantastic - there is some great talent out there," he added.

Strauss''s men have now won eight of their last nine Test series, including Ashes triumphs at home and away.

Needing to beat India by two clear Tests to displace them at the top of the rankings, they annihilated the tourists, storming to victories at Lord''s, Trent Bridge and Edgbaston.

Next summer features home Test series against West Indies and South Africa, the team Vaughan rates as the most capable of ousting England.

"In Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, South Africa have two match-winning bowlers," he said. "But I''m not sure if they have the depth that England have. For years Australia had that real depth in their squad. England have that now and they will take some catching."
