Captains View

Aaron Finch | Australia Skipper

We’ll have a bowl. Looks a little bit dry but I don’t think it will change. It might skid with the new ball. We’re playing the same team. The way we hung in the contest and take it deep was crucial for us.

Zampas has been superb for a while in the shortest format, and hopefully that will continue. It is a new format, a new team and our record over NZ doesn’t matter at all.

Kane Williamson | Kane Williamson

We would have fielded as well. It looks like a reasonable wicket and who knows about the dew. Just trying to get a competitive total. We have one obvious change: Conway is out and Seifert is in.

It is a shame that he misses but as a team, we have to move on and focus on the challenge at hand. Mitch Santner is a world-class operator and it didn’t quite work out in the match the other night. We don’t want to look too far ahead and we just need to make a few small adjustments.

Player of the Match

Mitchell Marsh

Lot of people say this but I really don’t have words right now. An amazing six weeks with this group. Coaching staff came up to me in the WI and said you’ll bat three for this tournament.

I jumped at the opportunity. Not a whole lot of thinking that goes into that (first ball for six). Just wanted to go out there and have a presence. Big Marcus Stoinis always talks about having a presence.
