Player of the Match
It’s been a slow season for me so far. To perform is fantastic. To build some momentum in the past two weeks has been great and to play on a used pitch was nice for a change here. Liam’s obviously a fantastic player.
Lovely to get one over him today. It’s upto Jos really to see what the pitch is doing and the game situation as well (who will bowl set of 10).
