Post Match Presentation

Shan Masood: “When you come to these shores you look for progress… if you said Australia would play 110 overs, and us 100, I’d take that. We could have batted a bit quicker, missed on 60-70 runs. Bowling-wise thought we did a lot of good things. Not as disciplined as we wanted to be, that’s the lesson from the Australian attack. A lot of positive things to take forward. It’s never easy when you play two debutants but thought they were very mature. They bowled really well, on another day could gave got more wickets.”

Pat Cummins: “Great start to the summer, everything fell into place. We’ve played a lot of cricket, so the build-up was very chilled and relaxed. No hiccups this week, it’s all gone to plan. That was huge [from Warner], his and Uzzie’s partnership really set the game up for us. [Mitch] is one of the favourites of the west, so pumped to see him do well. Five hundred Test wickets, over decade, all conditions, he just finds a way. He’s been stewing on it for six months with his injury.”

Mitch Marsh is player of the match: “It’s been amazing. My first Test at Perth Stadium, and first in Perth for six years. Thanks to everyone for getting around me. When you go out with a biggish lead it takes the pressure off a little, but the wicket was really tricky. We knew our bowlers would be a handful. Bowling hurts way too much, so I’ll take the runs. Nice to contribute with the ball. To get one in the right area to Babar, he’s a class player, was nice.”
