How fit are you to take on the Indians?
I am very nearly there. It's a race against time. I want to return at my best and hold my own against the Indian batting.

Do we see fireworks from you during the series?
I will intimidate where and when I can. Sachin, Laxman and Co have their own ways and we have ours.

Does that mean bowling faster?
I will be giving my all and if that means bowling faster than ever, then why not?

Any special strategy for the Indians?
We are always learning. The boys have come back from India with some interesting points.

Any one particular player in your mind?
Like most bowlers, I'd love Sachin's wicket.

Indians can't play pace. Comment.
At times, we've struggled on slow pitches. Sachin is one of the best players of pace bowling.

Brett Lee vs Sachin Tendulkar. Looking forward to the contest?
Can't wait. I love to watch him play, but I love watching him walk back to the pavilion more.

Feeling threatened by the likes of Brad Williams and Nathan Bracken?
A lesson I learnt early in my career was to worry about your own performance and the rest will take care of itself.

What was it about Timex that you decided to be its brand ambassador?
It is one of the great brands of the world. It represents a lot of qualities I believe in myself.

Do you endorse others in Australia?
I am very selective and associate only with partners I believe in.
