Player of the match
Andre Russell | Washington Freedom
The body is good, most games in T20 you have to play with a niggle. I have perhaps played only a 100 games fully fit. We still have one game to go, we will see how things are. I’m enjoying batting, but our team results are an issue.
Hope we can finish strong, finish with a win and have a glass of Orange juice for that. We still have a good unit, need to keep backing ourselves.
