It is our most complete performance. Last few games we had our batting or bowling misfiring. Jason Sangha has been a real find. He has a lovely technique. The blend of experience and youth is exciting.
I was in the Test squad twice last summer. I haven’t played a lot despite being in a lot of bio bubbles. I get valued in this environment and love playing for Thunder. Test cricket is still the pinnacle for me. Hopefully, we can build on this performance tonight.
