Player of the Match
It was a nice little period for me. Good to spend some time out in the middle which I haven’t done much lately. It was about playing proper cricketing shots as we knew it was a good batting surface.
It (the season) has been a bit of a whirlwind and great to be part of this team. The class that we have with our bowlers, we know we can defend anything. Playing at home in front of our home crowd is massive, hopefully, this is the jump-start we needed to go deep in the tournament.
