Yorkshire fast bowler Liam Plunkett believes he will do well this time around as he returns to the England squad after seven years of hard work at the county circuit.
Plunkett,29, hasn't played at the international level since 2007. Now that he has had a good start to the season with 24 wickets, he is hopeful of doing well.
“I have learnt a lot about myself, a lot more about my game,” he told ecb.co.uk.
“I want to play. I’m obviously in the 12, but I would love to play. I want to do exactly what I have been doing for Yorkshire. Be aggressive and play the type of cricket I have been playing.
“You learn year by year. When I was at Durham and not playing, you spiral down. You appreciate when you do play. I have learnt a lot and I am excited to get the chance.
“People have been getting runs and wickets in county cricket and have been rewarded for it. It is a good thing. I am excited for the challenge.”
Liam also believes, as he told earlier in an interview, that switching over from Durham to Yorkshire has done a lot good to him as he couldn't even play when with Durham while he emerged as one of the best in the county circuit under the guidance of Jason Gillespie at Yorkshire.
“When you have got the coaches and captain on the same page as you, they know your game and know you want to show some intent.
“Sometimes if you do make a mistake, you know the next game you will perform. And that has what it has been with bat and ball, having a game plan and sticking with it.”
As told earlier, Plunkett bowls it at a searing pace and is one of the fastest in the LV=CC. You add to that, he is getting better as a batsman, the best example of which was his century for England Lions on a recent tour to Sri Lanka.
He added: “I enjoy bowling quickly and hitting boundaries. It depends what the game needs. I do bowl my best when I run in and bowl quickly.
“I can bowl all day as well, it’s not as if I can only bowl two or three overs, I can bowl long spells as well.”
