Player of the match
Imad Wasim | Seattle Orcas
I thought the wicket was good, we bowled really well. We had to grind it out in the second half and go from over to over. It was about being calm. We were looking for one boundary in an over. Hetmyer and Nauman played really well, credit goes to them. In powerplay it’s hard, every team is losing wickets. When I saw the wicket, the conditions were demanding. I tried to grind it out in the middle.
