“After India, I had a good break away from it, because I really did start hating cricket. It got too much at times, certainly, in that bubble in India, there’s a lot of pressures going on and it was really important for me to come back and get away from it,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Bess as saying.

Bess got five wickets from the two Test in the fourth match series which India won 3-1. 

Bess continued: “In all honesty, I’m not thinking about England at all. Of course, it’s there, but I’m not pushing that. It’s about banking what I do, making sure it’s a long-term process.

I’m 23, so I’m looking at four-five years’ time, and what I do now – if the chance did come, I can go back into the international scene and know my game more. If it’s this summer, it’s this summer,” 

It’s more the trust and the process of that, trusting England that they’re not just going to throw me out, and it goes both ways. I had some really tough lessons in India.

I had some great support from Jeetan Patel and Richard Dawson, with who I’m in regular contact with. I’m in regular contact with Jack Leach as well. And I think it’s really important that you build that entourage, because it’s not about yourself, it’s about the team, whether it’s England or Yorkshire,” he added.
