Dasun Shanaka: “Our strength is bowling so we’d like to bowl first.”

Dasun Shanaka: “We had lots of positives with the bowling and in the field. I thought we did better in those departments. Obviously, we didn’t get any partnerships going from the start. It’s been a concern even from the last tour we were here. We need to come up with a better plan for the next game.”

Aaron Finch: “It was nice to get the win. I thought we had to bowl well to defend that total on this wicket. We probably left ourselves a little bit short with the bat. We got ourselves into a position where we were one wicket down too many at stages after the 12th over. But an unbelievable effort from the bowlers.”

Player of the match is Adam Zampa: “It’s a world-class bowling attack. To have those guys up the other end building pressure. That pressure built up tonight and I was lucky enough to be on the end of a couple of wickets.”
