I have played incredible knocks with the lightest of bats.
Far from being a mere consequence of winning, strong team spirit is an essential ingredient of sporting success; it comes before, not afterwards.
Even the thunderous master-blasters, like Andre Russell and MS Dhoni, men who now make scoring more than 20 runs per over look simple, often thrive on the right side of an incredibly slender gap between six and out. They are not more lucky than anyone else. They are more brilliant.
I've always been a people pleaser.
The interests of the team must always outweigh the interests of any individual, including me.
I accept that it is not always moonshine and roses, and you can't expect things must always go your way.
