England aim to wipe out deficit of 119 – listen to The Cricket Social


In terms of setting targets it depends on who you are batting with. Jonathan Trott worked in fives – he also wanted to get to the nearest multiple of five, so if he was on 27, he’d say, “Let’s get to 30.”

Kevin Pietersen didn’t think about small targets – he would just bat.

For me, it depended on what form I was in about whether I would just bat or think about it in stages.
