Collecting my 'Man of the Match' award at the U19 World Cup in Sri Lanka 2006 in front of Lyndsey and my family.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?

Being on top of an elephant in Sri Lanka. The elephant was spooked by something in the bushes and decided too start moving about. I thought I was going to fall off.

How would you describe your taste in clothes? What's the most you have ever spent on a single item?

Casual and trendy. I spent �120 on a pair of jeans.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?

I would buy a house and a car. I would also give some to my family and a cancer charity.

What was your most embarrassing moment?

I was playing a match in the main test stadium in Sri Lanka against New Zealand and my jock strap broke and my box fell down my trousers. I had to fix it in front of a crowd. To make it worse I later found out the match was being shown on a local TV channel.

What music do you like?

I like all sorts of music.

What sports person do you most admire?

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
I enjoyed my recent experience in Sri Lanka but I prefer South Africa as a place to visit. My dream holiday would be to the Maldives as I had a very short taste of this when we stopped off there on the way to Sri Lanka.

To captain my country at senior level and also to travel the world with Lyndsey.
