When asked about getting out 'bowled' often in his career - "... those are challenges you face all your life. I think that is what differentiates people who play for long periods of time from others, because they keep getting asked questions.

For some it is a different bowler, a unique angle, on a different wicket. These questions keep getting asked and you have to constantly keep coming up with answers. Most of the guys that I know who have played over a period of time have constantly been able to find answers to the questions that keep getting asked. You become a problem solver, a solution finder."
