We tried our best to get them out. The pledge was viewed with scorn in some quarters with Shane Warne and Michael Vaughan among the highest-profile ex-players deriding it.

If you are not part of the team, you have to make sure you keep your work ethics at the top level and once you get the chance you have to be ready to go. Your greatest strength can be your greatest weakness. I just want to go out there, contribute and give a good start for my team. They are always going to be flat we know that.
