If there's a moment that we can exploit someone's mental capabilities well then yeah, we're going to go about it. There are moments you pick and choose and obviously the right words. There's a line and we've just got to make sure we don't cross it." <p></p> <p></p><strong>On Jonny Bairstow:</strong> <p></p> <p></p>"When I played with him at Yorkshire we had a great time together. I really like Jonny, we got along really well but it's a different ball game now. I'm not trying to make him (Bairstow) feel good out there. That's not my job." <p></p> <p></p>The second Test at Adelaide begins on December 2 with Australia leading 1-0.
