Sammy: Not many gave us a chance but we knew what we could do. No changes for us today. I would like to congratulate the women’s team for their win here today.
Morgan: Today we just have to take one more step. We would have done the same, would’ve bowled first. Looks a really good surface, big covering of grass. Normally it’s quite bare and takes a bit of turn. We also have made no changes in our team, and we hope to have a good encounter here today.
