|Boult: It felt very good. Pretty good bowling performance by us. It was a job well done. The ball did swing for a little bit longer. We just went there and wanted to do what we were doing for the last couple of weeks.|
|Trent Boult is the Man of the Match.|
Brendon: After being four for 12, they did well to get to that tricky total. Pleased with the result at the end but we were nervous. We have world class bowlers, who stood up. When you win the toss and bowl, you hope to take early wickets. A really good performance on the field and with the ball but we need to improve the batting. It is a long way to go in the competition but hopefully we will keep improving along the way.
Preston: It was tough for us. Unfortunately, we lost a few early wickets. But Richie and Mathew did it for us. Joshy and Wardy bowleed well for us. We are not shy of the fact that we are a very inexperienced team
