The men are always willing to help because many of them have experience playing (Test) cricket. Not that I haven’t played red-ball cricket in India, of course. I am a captain, therefore I am aware of how it operates. I try to think back on how we’ve worked as a team and simply try to remember those ideas. When I’m in charge of the team, I aim to keep things as straightforward as possible.
