Man of the match

Daniel Sams

Didn’t want to get another duck and just wanted to take it deep. Have been working with Ponting to clear the boundary. Being completely honest when you lose a couple of wickets in the powerplay you get rattled, but we pride ourselves on being calm. There obviously were four points to grab, but great to get three.
