Berrington: We were pretty happy with the first innings, maybe missed out on a few in the back end … We were excellent with the ball up front, with those wickets. We have to give credit to Ireland, was an exceptional knock from Curtis. We know from last year that these group situations are never straightforward. We will learn from today and come back stronger.
Andrew Balbirnie: “Was special, can’t remember a partnership as important as that. to get over the line like that … was a special knock from George and Curtis, hopefully, we can take this momentum into Friday … We started the tournament disappointingly and then in our first inning today, great to fight back.”
Campher is almost in tears as he says he was struggling after receiving some bad news about his family in recent days. What resolves to produce an innings like this? “Just happy to be able to help the team, to be honest, we’ve gone up the gears, happy it has come together now.”
