 We have to face up to the fact that under pressure we aren't performing well. We just aren't getting it done under pressure,

 It was more precautionary. I saw him running around after the game tonight and doing a bit of fielding. It looked like he was moving freely.

 The previous two World Cups I played down the order (where) you've got reasonably limited opportunities to create an impact. That's why I'm absolutely determined to play a role at the top of the order. Coming to India the best time to bat is when the ball is new.

 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.

 Things look to be going pretty well, so I guess it's just a case of monitoring the situation. Every player wants to be involved in the IPL because it's such a great tournament and the fact that it's played at that time of year in conditions which are pretty extreme is just another challenge.

 It was a tough challenge and results didn't go the way we wanted, but it was a great experience and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to captain a franchise with such a big fan following. I certainly learned some lessons which will help me as I continue to experience everything cricket has to offer.

 I tried to be too responsible with my batting. My game is based around being aggressive and playing with no fear, and when you're willing yourself to perform so much that can often affect that aggressiveness.

 I think the messages that I was preaching I actually wasn't following myself in terms of that aggressive style of cricket. In hindsight, I think I let the captaincy affect my batting, but fortunately, towards the end of the competition I produced some performances that helped the team win as well.
