Like the periwig and the bowler hat, the plus-four and the bow-tie, the blazer is on the way out, and those who persist in wearing it do so with a smattering of self-consciousness, a touch of obstinacy, even a pinch of camp.
In the IPL, I learnt from Dale Steyn. Our bowling styles are quite different, but he is a great bowler, and you can always pick something from the way he bowls. He has given me a lot of tips during matches, which I have tried in my bowling.
It doesn’t matter which era you play in. Wickets are the only way you can contain. Restricting the batsmen to six runs in the first over may look okay but in the next over they will hammer the other bowler. Giving ten runs and taking a wicket – I’ll take that any day.
Many England girls have grown up playing men’s cricket and trained in county men’s academies, so they’ve faced 70-80 mph bowling. So when it comes to the women‘s game you have a 75mph bowler who’s not as tall and not getting as much bounce, you feel more assured.
If you ask me, a batsman has very few opportunities as compared to a bowler. A bowler knows, if he gets hit for a six or a boundary, he has another deliveryleft to get back and take a wicket. For a batsman, one loose shot, and you are out. A bowler will always have 24 opportunities.
It is important as a bowler that you always need to have a presence. If you lose that you lose quite a bit, a big part of your armoury. It comes naturally with me, and at times it is a hugeadvantage. I don’t want to lose it. I want to keep getting wickets.

As a bowler, there are times when you do not get wickets, and you don’t have the numbers to show against your name. But never has the thoughtcrossed my mind that I am not a confident bowler and the wickets are not coming my way.
You know, when a fast bowler comes back after a series of five Test matches and then straightaway has to go into a one-day series with a three-day break, a T20 series with a one-day break, it is tough.
I guess my game plan in ODI cricket is very set with the new ball and at the death. In Test cricket, you have to bowl longer and batsmen don’t have to score as quickly. But at the same time, as a bowler, you can bring in some aspects of one format to the other format.
