All-rounder Stuart Broad felt England's pre-series planning was the major factor in the whitewash of India.

Andrew Strauss' side completed a 4-0 win at the Oval with an innings and eight-run victory, putting the gloss on their rise to the top of the Test rankings.

Broad was nominated as the hosts' man of the series by the India camp and the Nottinghamshire man believes the England attack was simply putting into practice the preparations set out by Strauss and coach Andy Flower.

He said: "We have worked well together, (Graeme) Swann has bowled very well on this wicket and we have all bowled to a plan throughout the series. It has been very rewarding.

"They have a powerful batting line-up but we set pretty clear plans at the start of the series on how we wanted to bowl - slightly fuller lengths with the odd bouncer and the wickets we have played on have allowed that.

"The plans have worked and we are delighted with the results."
