Man of the match

Josh Lalor

Very comfortable win for us in the end. We got players who can chip in with many roles and we saw that today. Plenty of options and variety, just shows the depth we’ve got. Shaun Marsh made a tough run-chase look like a walk in the park. No rest, we will be back here tomorrow afternoon, and hopefully we get another win.
