Aaron Finch is the Player of the Match: We were a bit sloppy in the field and with the bat. Lucky to get across the line. We just kept losing wickets. But Wadey the cool head in the end… It would have been nice to see the side through but we crossed the line in the end. [On Green opening] We would probably swap it in the next game. We want to tinker around and get all basis covered before the World Cup.
Nicholas Pooran: Defending 146, we had our chances but we messed it up. I am happy the guy came out, having Australia 54 for 5 but we didn’t capitalise on key moments. Finchy and Wade played well. Kyle Mayers batted well, Cariah did well in his first game, and Alzarri bowled well.
