England Test captain Andrew Strauss will warn his players not to let festering ill-feeling towards Pakistan turn into personal vendettas.

According to the Sun,Strauss is desperate to prevent emotions boiling over in the wake of the spot-fixing scandal when the teams meet in January 2012.

England and Pakistan will play a three-match Test series,four-match ODI series and three Twenty20 Internationals in the United Arab Emirates.

Strauss and England’s management know several players still feel resentment at being sucked into the corruption controversy last year.

The captain himself has described corruption as a ‘cancer’ in cricket,but will try to make sure his players remain focused on beating Pakistan without distractions.

He will hold a team meeting at the start of the tour in the New Year and spell out the need to avoid any simmering rifts.
