Man of the Match Glenn Maxwell: I could play a different role with Josh batting that way. His range, clarity is great. Felt nice to get that crucial direct hit on the field too.
Aaron Finch: “Agar is bowling beautifully. We need a strong lower order with the bat if we want to defend our World Cup title. Wade did that against Pakistan, and Inglis showed that today too. Maxwell’s role was mature to take us over the line.”
Dasun Shanaka: “Spinners were good but we didn’t put enough runs on the board. Melbourne crowd is always good for us, but sadly we couldn’t get a win for them.”
