Player of the Match
Fawad Ahmed | Adelaide Strikers
It didn’t start well today, but the last couple of overs were good. It’s been tough, I really wanted to play, but missed half the tournament with a fractured rib. I wanted to contribute to the team, but it hasn’t been an ideal season for me so far.
Hopefully, we’ll win the next two games and get into the finals. I dived at the boundary in a T20 game before the tournament, it hurt badly and my arm got swollen, it’s hurting, it’s hard on me, can’t bend too much, can’t put too much pressure on my thigh. Trying my best, looking to do well for the team.
