“We have got one of the greatest challenges coming up, playing India in India. So for me, that’s got me out of bed every day and challenging myself against the best in the world in tough conditions. The different challenge in India, that’s what you want to do in international cricket you want to challenge yourself in different conditions and formats,” Southee said.
