My personal goals have always and will always take a backseat to the team.
I have played incredible knocks with the lightest of bats.
You live for those pressure moments. Through an international career, you have ups and downs, but you always feel you are going to be tested in moments like that. It has taken me years to feel comfortable and to feel like I have good composure in those situations.
Yes, I would have loved to win it, but I have great memories from World Cups. The 2007 tournament - my first - was very special.
I was brought up to always see the glass half full instead of half empty and played my cricket that way.
It's never been about my own runs. If I can score as many as possible to get us into a position to win, then I'll be a very happy man.
When I'm fielding at point, I'm running all over that field, and I'm really tired by the end of the innings.
I accept that it is not always moonshine and roses, and you can't expect things must always go your way.
The interests of the team must always outweigh the interests of any individual, including me.
I've always been a people pleaser.
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.
Far from being a mere consequence of winning, strong team spirit is an essential ingredient of sporting success; it comes before, not afterwards.
