“I thought Ed batted really well on what wasn’t a straightforward pitch against some decent bowling, but the whole top order laid the platform for us to create a bit of momentum later in the innings,” he continued.

“In terms of the bowling and fielding it was a fairly complete performance, with pressure throughout and enough good balls to steadily take wickets and, of course, Chally’s figures speak for themselves.”

“I think some better weather will hopefully help the cricket, but I can’t imagine it’ll make bowling any easier.”
