Post Match Presentation.
Player of the Match Chris Greaves:
“We were in a tough situation obviously and it doesn’t always go that way. It was just to rebuild the innings at that stage and see where we could go from there. I was happy to be that person. With the score on the board, you’ve got something to bowl at.
I think once we got that total on the board with our bowling lineup, we’ll back it. It was a great great game. It was my day I think today. It will be many other days that any one of us in that squad will be a part of. I’m just glad I could contribute in the way I did. Incredible. There are so many words. Just really enjoying it and taking one day at a time. Hopefully, many more days like this to come.”
Mahmudullah, the Bangladesh captain:
“The wicket was quite good, 140 was gettable. We were missing that one big over in the middle. Bowlers did their job really well but the batting unit wasn’t good enough. Credit goes to their batters (for coming back from 53 for 6), they had a good finish. We still need to be positive and figure out where we made mistakes, and not try to repeat them.”
Kyle Coetzer, the winning captain:
“To get into that position, we have to give credit to the Bangladesh bowlers. They showed high-class skills and blew us away, to be honest. We’ve got a huge belief in our squad. And any player coming in has the ability to hit the ball over the ropes, as Chris Greaves and Josh Davey at the end showed.
It just shows we can win a game from anywhere. I said at the halfway point that we can show we can win a game from that position. Everyone just put their hand up and contributed when it was required. It’s a huge confidence-builder. We believe even more now that we can keep on pushing and challenging teams.”
