'I wasn't comfortable with Chappell'

You recently said that the dressing room atmosphere now is the best ever and coach Gary Kirsten should take a lot of credit for it.

He is the best coach I have ever seen. He doesn't force things on you. His basic premise is: you all are international cricketers and you know how to succeed and how important it is to succeed. So I won't thrust myself on you. But whenever you need me, for practice, throwing balls, sharing ideas, worries, I am always there.
