“But that’s the way of the world and it was a really intense few months for me … the India series and Big Bash.”
“Packing up my kit for a little bit as well, I didn’t touch my bat until a couple of days after Christmas which was nice, but I still got a couple of weeks of training in before (flying to Adelaide).”
