The 30-year-old admitted that the first few days after the defeat against New Zealand were hard but the players have now accepted that it’s time to move on as they take on West Indies in a three-match T20 series in the United States.
“Well look, obviously the first few days after we exited the World Cup were quite difficult. By the time the tournament got over, I think every time we woke up it was the worst feeling in the morning and through the day you do things and you know sort of get on with your life,” he said.
“But now look, we’re professionals, we move ahead, every team has to move on so we’re quite ok with what happened in the World Cup. Yesterday the fielding session and a little bit of time we spent on the field was really good, everyone was excited, looking forward to just playing, just being on the field again.
“I think that’s the best thing you can do as a team, just get on the park as soon as possible. Everyone’s looking forward to these games which I think is the most important thing. It will just give us an opportunity to have some fun together, understand why we’ve been so successful as a team and really focus on the things that matter, rather than focusing on the things that are not in our control.”
