Nida Dar: It was not a result we wanted, it was disappointing. We know we were lacking strength in our batting line-up. We have to learn from this kind of match and will take some positives from it. We played two good matches here so will learn something. It’s the best time for youngsters to come up and take the challenge. We have Ayesha Naseem, and we should have more talent coming up like that. It’s a milestone for me to be the top wicket-taker in T20Is. I want to do the best for my team, that’s my goal.
Heather Knight: Trying to take some momentum into the semis today. The way our batters played today, was really good. Very pleased with Danni, and the way she was batting in the nets, it wasn’t far away. Really pleased with the way she batted. I think so [do they have a XI in mind for the semi-final], lots of options which is really nice. It [the pitch] was good, more pace and carry, and Katherine made use of that nicely. Good to get used to it, haven’t played here for a long time so good to be here.
Nat Sciver-Brunt the Player of the Match: It was alright at the start, their spinners bowled a little slower than ours. We thought the wicket was pretty good. The start from Wyatt was so important, Sophia and Alive have been batting so well so far, and it’s so crucial. We’d been building well into this tournament, we hadn’t been bowling that well. This was a really good performance.
