Player of the Match
It was nice to score runs. I am pleased with how I played. It wasn’t easy to start and we didn’t get as many as we should’ve in the back-end. It was lovely playing in front of the crowd. All are bowlers bowled really well but their batters applied themselves well. I try and enjoy every game.
