PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Colin de Grandhomme
Sarfraz, losing captain: Very disappointing but some positive things. Haris batted well, Fakhar batted well. Hafeez there at the end. We felt good when we scored 262, credit goes to de Grandhomme. Great innings.
Williamson, winning captain: Pakistan played very well, soaked up some pressure with the bat. They took their innings deep and posted a competitive score. We didn’t put up our smartest batting performance. And then Colin came out and played out of his skin. It was special to watch. We didn’t think it would take as much turn as it did. Lot of credit to the top of the order. We got off to a very good start. Henry Nicholls was outstanding in that partnership too. It was really nice to get the win tonight. We were under pressure for a large part of the innings. Plenty of learnings.
De Grandhomme, Man of the Match: Been hitting well in the nets, just brought it out here. Was crucial for Henry to be there at the end, that’s what we talked about.
