CP Rizwan: “It’s definitely heartbreaking, we put our heart and soul into it. We could have grabbed those chances…I could have grabbed that [catch]. We discussed that it’s not that easy to chase here, so told the boys it’s never over until the last ball. We nearly pulled that off. We had to ensure we get wickets, but also have [Junaid’s] over for the end. We should be happy with the effort.”
Scott Edwards: “It was always a bit nervy, just relief in the end. It was making the most of the powerplay and we knew it would be tough in the middle. We lost a few too many wickets as we were getting going. It was just about being busy, and playing as low-risk as we could…we ended up getting across the line. All the [bowlers] did their job, they were all great. I’m still struggling to process it, just relief at the moment.”
Player of the Match is Bas de Leede: “I like bowling in those situations as I know batters will come after me. So I try to be one step ahead. Was nice to pull back the innings. In the end, it got a lot closer than we were expecting.”
