Player of the Match
Tim David | (58 off 33)
It wasn’t an ideal start, but the openers are good players but that happens sometimes. We batted well enough in the end, and our bowling did extremely well to get us through. A lot of new guys in our group who have really bonded well together and have contributed together as a team tonight.
