As a young player, it's always the ultimate honour to represent your country and perform for them. With the captaincy, as time goes by you gain experience and people look at you and assess your credentials. It was a great feeling for me when I was made captain. So many great players have captained the West Indies team through the years.
Quite frankly, with the players that are about now, I think it will be difficult. I'll just try to keep doing what I'm doing and scoring runs.
Was I the youngest player to get to 5000 runs?
Yes, I did! Although, I got a bit of luck. One of them I got an inside edge past the stumps and another went past Yuvraj Singh, who dived. It was all done pretty instinctively.
Before I wore a bandana because the helmet was a bit too big for me. I could never find the right size to wear and the bandana supported me and made my head a bit bigger. When I found the right size I got rid of the bandana.
The 105 I made against Australia in 2003, when we chased 418 on the final day. The way I played made it the pick of my innings. It gave me confidence to kick on at that stage of my career.
I'd just played a game in Guyana. They gave me a call on my landline to tell me I was in the squad.
Safely in the wardrobe.
I've got to say myself. I have my stuff all over the place.
Chris Gayle. Everything he does in the dressing room is funny. He is so laidback and he makes everyone laugh. The "Gangnam Style" stuff is a typical example.
Batsmanship. The way he goes about building an innings and the way he knows when to pick on bowlers.
Rahul Dravid got hit by Merv Dillon once [back in 2002]. It struck him on the helmet, which was pretty nasty.
No way. There'd be too much stuff I wouldn't want to know!
It's very quiet in Leicestershire! The music is totally different. Back home in Guyana the music is better to dance to. There'd be a lot more dancing there.
