Alex Hales

Alex Hales, Man of the Match: It’s as good as it gets (To score a hundred at his home ground). Managed to replicate my performance against Pakistan a couple of years back, it’s a special day. To beat the opposition by close to 240 runs is unbelievable. I think the pool of talent we have got around in England in white-ball cricket is really good at the moment. Striving to improve more.

Eoin Morgan, England captain: Certainly, it’s a proud feeling. To operate at that level throughout the whole game was outstanding. We have two more games left and two more opportunities to score big for the batsmen. It’s a good headache to have (about the selection). The talent we have in the change room is brilliant. We are going to Durham next, will try to reassess. We have a pretty settled batting unit. We need to be top of our game, 50-over game has moved forward dramatically over the last few years and we have put ourselves in a position where we have adapted brilliantly.

Tim Paine, Australian captain: Today was a learning experience for all of us. As I said, It was tough, no matter where we put the fielders, they hit the gaps and they were red-hot, that’s the yardstick of 50-over cricket. Some young guys are getting some games. 12 months is a long time in cricket (looking ahead of World Cup) and things can change pretty quickly.
