 I think that Sourav's always been a nice guy. I've always got along with him well and I look forward to playing under him. It seems like he's doing a really good job as captain-coach over there, I've spoken to a couple of the boys and they seem to be really happy about how things are. So, yeah, for me it's an eye-opener.

 We're the No.1 one-day team in the world so I'd like to think that we're favourites. But in saying that we have to be at our best. We have to play at our best to beat both these teams.
