Player of the Match
Unbelievable atmosphere. It is one of the best grounds to play in the world, and it’s nice to join the ladies up there with a win. The support was phenomenal, a few of the local lads were Surrey lads and they closed the game at the end.
It was a bit slow and we saw a bit of spin at the end. It is all about adapting and thankfully we got enough tonight. 150-160 is par, but today on that kind of a pitch I thought we were close. Narine is a phenomenal man. He has done it all over the world and for a batsman coming in, it is really difficult.
