After the game, Kieron Pollard said, “The guys batted well, I thought, especially the opening. He (Wasim) was brilliant, that’s what we know we can do. It was great to see him. Well done and Well supported by Fletcher.”
Pollard said, “Yeah (enjoying the captaincy), a lot of experienced guys but also some inexperienced guys. Have played a lot around the world, so it’s about transferring our knowledge.” It was a good start for him (Mosley), Nicholls. Pooran could not play due to personal reasons, so he did well as a substitute.
