It was a great relief for me as well as everyone else in the dressing room when I got there. I've been waiting for that a long time. I got over a little hurdle when I made that first big score in Pakistan. That gave me the belief to kick on and I knew that my first hundred wouldn't be far away, as long as I applied myself as I did there.Paul Collingwood
