This year will be another challenge for me with a busy schedule coupled with my benefit year and a book launch in the new year. It will be like all the other years before me and the prospect of playing against some very strong teams and a likely chance of representing my country still sits high on my agenda. Consistency has always been every player’s goal and that reality for me was evident last year and even more of a challenge is to back it up this year.
The Black Caps have given themselves every opportunity to go on and do the unthinkable and take out this year’s Champions Trophy. I am not going to predict a winner, all I want to see is a great game and the best team winning on the day. It should be great viewing and even more reason why one day cricket should stick around.
