Some of it (the shots he plays) was preplanned. I sometimes let my instincts take over, sometimes it works really well. It is my job to ensure that we get good starts especially in the run chase. It’s something I’ve done in the past and something I love to do. Sometimes it works (attacking bowlers), sometimes it doesn’t work. We just need to continue this and in future also we will have to keep the opposition teams under pressure.
