I am acutely aware of my responsibilities as captain; they came along with the job, and I have to give it my best shot. I have the interests of the team, the players, foremost in my mind. As captain, I take the decisions that are good for them. And I back my decisions.

Batting first at Perth, for instance. Not many teams do it, but I thought that was the right thing to do on that track. It was the best way to put pressure on Australia. Once you have the runs on board, the opposition is always under pressure, irrespective of who they are and what the conditions are.
