This Australian team accepted the fact that it doesn’t matter how good you are, sometimes setbacks happen. We stuck together. QX5 5/12/07 3:03 AM Page 34 GAME 6 AUSTRALIA A V ENGLAND BENSON & HEDGES WORLD SERIES SYDNEY 12 JANUARY 1995 In the eyes of many observers, I returned to Australia after the Pakistan series as an established Test cricketer. However, while I felt assured that I’d be in the batting line-up for the first Ashes Test of the 1994–95 season, I knew I had a great deal to prove, was determined to do so, and the pressure that determination brought was, in the end, the primary thing that wrecked the season for me.
And, in essence, I discovered that nearly anything was possible; later I’d learn that plenty can go wrong as well. The last of my five hundreds came against Tasmania in Hobart, the end of a run that went 106 not out (v WA in Sydney), 20 and 104 (v SA in Adelaide), 153 not out (v Victoria in Sydney), 121 (v Queensland in Sydney) and 136 and 3 (v Tassie). The century at Bellerive against Tasmania was actually my most circumspect, including only eight fours and a six, but it was also in a sense my most critical, as we went into that game level, at the top of the Shield ladder, with Victoria, so a win and preferably an outright win was critical.

My international debut was not one of the most notable ones, but through no fault of mine. QX5 5/12/07 3:03 AM Page 23 wickets. Second up, we beat New Zealand by seven wickets, and I made 39 not out from 63 balls as we successfully chased 208 with 13 balls to spare.
