Ashes 2009 Quotes


Post your comment about Ashes 2009

 It was my first Ashes series and it was tough for me, but that's no excuse. I put too much pressure on myself and it cost me. I was trying so hard to impress that I forgot the basics of my game and I ended up impressing no-one, and so I can understand why they left me out. Instead of going out and just playing and not worrying about my score, I ended up putting a lot of pressure on myself, because I knew it was a great stage to score runs. I forgot about what I'm good at, which is watching the ball and that sort of stuff. I went away from the basics of batting and I've learned from that.

 The first session was an awful one and from there it was hard to get back in the game. We need to learn lessons and make sure we don't make the same mistakes again. As a team, we've always come back well after performing badly. It's a time to be calm and not to panic - if we win at the Oval we win the series.
