“I’m happy with the way I’m striking the ball, that’s for sure Any time you can go out and get a hundred is nice. To strike it like that in the first two games is certainly satisfying. I know that I can improve in areas of my game. Any attack that I’ve come across in the short formats over the last 12 or 18 months, I’ve been pretty positive. I know that if I’m positive in the mind I’ll certainly perform at my best rather than just looking to get in and build an innings. That probably hasn’t worked for me over a period of time now.” – Wade said.
