What drives you in competition? I always strive to play my best for my country and my teammates.

What would selection for the Ashes mean for you? The Ashes was my first Test Match as Australian Captain, so it’s very special for me. I’d love to win the Ashes back from England this year.

How do you keep your exercise routine interesting? By combining a mixture of weights, running and cross training.

What would a typical day of training look like for you? Every day is different, but it usually consists of one hour of strength training, followed by a recovery session. In the evening we do team training.

Describe your day on a plate (starting with breakfast) Breakfast is oats, banana, yoghurt and coffee. Morning tea – rice cakes and fruit. Afternoon Tea – coffee and fruit. Dinner is either pasta or meat and three veg!
