Nicholas Pooran: Congratulations to Australia, they played better cricket. We are getting accustomed to the conditions, putting our egos aside, and working on the team plans.
Aaron Finch: Davey was the different, and Tim David. There was enough in the pitch for everyone. [On batting order] There is a method to everything we do. Still plenty of learning. It’s about managing our way to the World Cup. We want to play aggressively but at the same time, we want to manage well with long flights and short turnaround times.
David Warner is the Player of the Match, as well as the Player of the Series. “It was a fantastic all-round performance, well executed by our bowlers,” he says. “At the halfway mark we had discussed about bowling Test match lines and lengths, and they nailed them. [on opening with Green] He is a bit like me. Think he is going to have a big impact in the future.”
