"I will miss simply leaving there with the chaps, playing against best on the planet with that sensation of nerves yet additionally according to a bowling perspective, knowing with my best ball I could get anybody out. I've appreciated Test Cricket yet that power can be an excess of here and there and I feel as I've done what's necessary of it and I'm glad and content with how I've done."

However, in that Test and the accompanying one at The Kia Oval, he observed himself to not be able to completely think.
It wasn't so much that he couldn't have cared less. A long way from it. In any case, following two or three years playing short-design cricket, he discovered he at this point not had what it took to thrive in Test cricket. He just proved unable, as he puts it, "get in the zone" any longer. I felt like I was done, truth be told," he says now. I was expecting to play the last Test - there were two or three achievements I needed to pass - yet when that game got canceled, I understood that was it."
"Headingley was an incredible success however I just discovered I was unable to think. I've played rash shots previously and had poor games previously. However, I just felt like I wasn't in it. I've never felt that. It isn't so much that I would not like to perform, I simply didn't feel like I was completely sincerely into it.
"You make an honest effort. I just discovered it truly difficult to get in the zone bowling, batting and in the field. Also, the more I attempted, I just couldn't do it. In the past when I returned into the group, it may take a touch of time however at that point I'm holding nothing back. However, that series, I just couldn't do it. The environment felt great. It was truly ideal to be back in the changing area. Yet, I recently found cricketing-wise it was somewhat of a battle."
