He spent 83 overs with pads on waiting in Adelaide last week after 100 the previous weekend in Brisbane.

"It was great to see some guys score some big runs and me just sit back and chill back. Or at least try and chill out.

"It's actually hard waiting to bat. You're really focused on what is going on out in the middle and getting ready. That was difficult from the point of view."
