Babar Azam: In the first innings the pitch was a bit slow, we weren’t up to the mark. We have a day off tomorrow so we’ll discuss our mistakes. We had a bad day with the bat, it wasn’t up to the mark.
Kane Williamson: An improvement from the last game. A really efficient first half. We were limited with our seam bowling options. On this sort of wicket, it was about being disciplined with the lines and lengths. He (Finn Allen) has been hitting the ball well. He batted beautifully today. It’s important we keep assessing the conditions. We want to keep improving every day.
Michael Bracewell is the player of the match: Slightly different role today bowling in the Powerplay. Pretty happy with the way it came out today. Got a bit fortunate in the first over. I’m really enjoying my role in trying to provide some quality overs. If you can try and contain players like Finn Allen in the nets you are halfway there. I would like to have a hit (with the bat) but the sides doing well if I’m not batting.
