I absolutely love that role, and I really enjoyed playing it for the Scorchers, as we did set us up this year, and with the Power Surge it was great for our team with a stacked top spot. If I play for Australia at five or six, I’m really looking forward to it, alongside Stoin (Marcus Stoinis) and Maxy (Glenn Maxwell) and play these guys and hopefully form some good partnerships. “
