 We've done it really well. I'm happy the way the bowlers have stuck at it the last couple of days. We've been in the field for four consecutive days, so they're all a little bit tired and sore in the rooms and we'll give them a couple of days off and make sure they're in as good a shape as they can be for the start of the next one.

 The declaration had a lot to do with what I knew about the weather coming. We could have batted on and got 600 or whatever we wanted to, but by doing that and losing the majority of the day yesterday, it would have been touch and go whether we would have got a result in the game. For me and the Australian cricket team it's all about giving ourselves the best chance of winning.

 [Watson] just gives us so much better balance in our side, the fact that you can throw the ball to him and he can get his 10 or 15 overs out per innings. Every team in the world is after someone who bats in the top six and can bowl like he does. He has shown since he has been in our side just how important he is, so hopefully we'll get him back. If we do it means the bowlers won't have to do as much next week.

 He's definitely feeling the pinch, as is Dougie [Bollinger]. Mitch [Johnson's] workload over the last couple of years has been exceptional anyway, the way he's managed to get through and keep presenting in a really good shape. We have to manage them really well in the next couple of days.

 I was pleased with how I was able to adjust my game from the way I played in the first innings and to try and give us an opportunity to put a partnership on with Dan and then Daryl [Tuffey] as well. Against a very good team it rates as my best Test century. But when you lose a game it doesn't quite have the same feeling.

 The fourth day was obviously our best day of the Test match. It's something that we need to replicate over the whole five days to give ourselves a chance against Australia. Unfortunately we weren't able to build that pressure for long enough. After what we did yesterday it was a little bit disappointing to front up today and lose quick wickets. We wanted to bat for a long period of time but that's the nature of the game.

 It's been a trait of ours, particularly at the Basin, to get bowled out cheaply in the first innings and then fight pretty hard in the second. We can't afford to do that. We can't afford to be on the back foot at any stage against Australia in Hamilton.
