'If it sounds selfish, so be it Mr Gatting'
London: Nasser Hussain said on Sunday he was adopting a wait and see policy over his future as England's Test captain. Hussain, speaking ahead of England's first Test against Zimbabwe at Lord's which starts on Thursday, said, "I'm concentrating on leading us out against Zimbabwe, winning the Test series and then doing the same against South Africa." "After that, we'll just have to wait and see (if I continue as captain)." The 35-year-old, who stepped down as England's One-day skipper after his side's exit from the World Cup, added, "When you're in the kitchen, sometimes it gets hot - that's how it is being England cricket captain." "If you asked Graham Gooch or Mike Atherton, they'd say it's a tricky, difficult job but also a very rewarding one." "What I'm worried about is winning Tests for England and, if we play like we can, we should beat Zimbabwe." "The moment you win a Test or One-day match, you're very proud."
