Weve won and played three Test matches, and that has set us at the best place in our swimming pool.

All of the media reports in the past couple of days are about an uncontrollable thing such as the typhoon – and [the policy ] has lost its way.

We all would like to earn the right to be thought of as one of the elite teams on the planet.
It is important for us to wake up on Monday morning and comprehend that [either] we are a worthy high eight team or we arent quite good enough
