I loved this last week of training, because you can sit and feel bad for yourself and put it under the carpet, or you can find ways to make sure we are ready for the first ball (Wednesday) and then the next Test match.

It has been a long and hard tour, but we will stay together as much as we can and hope it will give us the right result.
