Stuart Broad refuses to waste energy fretting over his own form and fitness when he has a primary job to do as England's returning Twenty20 captain.
Broad could be forgiven for nagging doubts about his individual well-being, having ended 2012 with a heel injury and surplus to Test requirements in spin-dominated India after drawing a blank in successive matches.
The England collective is his sole concern, though, as he prepares for next week's two Twenty20 warm-ups and then to lead his country in three internationals against New Zealand. "The main goal for this tour is to win games of cricket," Broad said.
Pressed, inevitably perhaps, about his physical condition and his lack of wickets on the famously successful Test tour of India, the 26-year-old seamer pronounced no false assurances on the former and remains untroubled as yet by the latter.
With no outdoor bowling under his belt in snowy England, Broad admits he is "unsure" how his bruised heel, twice scanned before a period of rest was prescribed, will respond to the pounding it must take from his 6ft 7in delivery in full flow.
As for his standing as a first-choice regular, as he has almost always been in all formats for the past five years, Broad is convinced that hard work and ability will continue to work in his favour.
He has little time for the suggestion that, at the start of an Ashes-laden 12 months, the overriding motivation here must be to win back that Test spot he lost in Kolkata.
Broad added: "I'm not really bothered about what I do personally. You always judge a tour, and if it's a success, on how the team go and whether you win games.
"That will start in the Twenty20 and one-day format, and that's all I've focused on.
"What happens in March and later on than that ... you have to take each game and day as it comes, because we know in cricket you can maybe not take a wicket for a couple of games and then you get four or five and the ball's rolling again."
