PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Brendan Taylor

Man of the Match, Brendan Taylor: “(On being absent during second half) I am fine now. Had a bit of cramps. Was more of that than fatigue. I was very determined today. There has been a lot of questions regarding our batting. As Graeme said, we are a good batting side. Nice to get runs as an individual and of course it helps the team. There wasn’t any real change in the pitch but I think runs on the board does help.”

Cremer: “Very happy. Nice to see a good score. Showed our potential with the bat. Brendan and Sikander showed their class. Then the bowlers came back hard. There was a bit of movement out there under lights but we had to bowl the right areas. Always tough to chase a big score like this. That worked for us. We always knew that we had the potential, today we showed what we can do. If one of the top four bats through, we knew we can make it count.”

Stanikzai: “We thought that 330 was a big target. Zimbabwe played really well. Taylor batted nicely. We lost too many wickets early and that hurt. The batsmen couldn’t handle the pressure of the big run chase. Chatara bowled really well. We are a good bowling side usually but credit to Taylor and Raza today. The fielding has to improve.”
