If we all just take a minute and think about what he's put himself through in that 10 or 12 years - running 35 meters to bowl every ball, bowling every ball at close to 150 kph (93 mph), and putting his heart on the line every ball he bowls. I think this bloke deserves a massive pat on the back.

 I'd really love to be good enough, strong and fit enough to get back to England for one more crack at it. I've been really disappointed with the way the results have gone over there in the last two Ashes series and it would be nice to go back to The Oval and walk away with some good memories rather than some pretty ordinary ones,
