Man of the Match
It was a game-changing spell (On Neesham’s spell). That is why he is in the side. Last game he got some 30 odd. We had two high-quality players coming at us and we had to take the risks. Two ways to look at the rain.
It could have slided on as well. There were short boundaries straight as well. We have a great bunch of guys. As long as we keep improving. that matters.
