    TRANSCRIPT: QUESTION: " YOUR FORM WASN'T AFFECTED BY CAPTAINING. WOULD YOU BE PREPARED TO CAPTAIN TE ENGLAND SIDE IN AUSTRALIA IF YOU WERE ASKED TO?"



    TRANSCRIPT: DEXTER: " I'D LIKE TO VERY MUCH, BUT THAT FIRST DEPENDS ON BEING SELECTED TO GO AT ALL. I VERY MUCH WANT TO GO DOWN THERE AGAIN, WHETHER I'M JUST A PLAYER, OR CAPTAIN, BUT ONE OR THE OTHER, I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING."



    QUESTION: "HOW FAR HAS THIS TOUR IN PAKISTAN AND INDIA HELPED TO CLARIFY THE ENGLAND TEAM FOR AUSTRALIA NEXT WINTER?"



    DEXTER: "WELL, THAT'S A PRETTY BIG QUESTION. I THINK THERE ARE SOME PLAYERS WHO HAVE CERTAINLY MADE THEIR MARK, AND SELECTION ALWAYS, I THINK, AGAIN DEPENDS ON FORM BACK HERE IN ENGLAND. THERE ARE LOTS OF VERY FINE PLAYERS WHO WEREN'T WITH US ON TOUR, BUT I'M SURE WE'LL SEE SOME OF THESE PLAYER WHO PLAYED WITH ME IN INDIA AND PAKISTAN AND CEYLON. I'M SURE SOME OF THEM WILL BE GOING DOWN TO AUSTRALIA, AND THIS TOUR WILL HAVE HELPED THEM A LOT."



    QUESTION: "AND WITH WHAT PROSPECTS IN AUSTRALIA, WOULD YOU SAY?"



    DEXTER: "OH, I THINK PRETTY GOOD. WE WERE ONLY JUST INCHES BEHIND AUSTRALIA WHEN THEY CAME OVER HERE THIS LAST TIME, AND WE WERE REALLY ONLY A FEW INCHES BEHIND INDIA AND PAKISTAN, SO I THINK WE'VE GOT PLENTY OF CHANCES OF GOING DOWN THERE AND LOOKING AFTER THOSE AUSTRALIANS."



    QUESTION: "THANK YOU VERY MUCH."
