Speaking to media the winning capatin Steve Smith shared his views about the match. He said during the post match presentation ceremony," Very good win. The boys scrapped incredibly well. It was a tough wicket to get going on. We thought 148 was a bit below par. We thought 165 was about par, but the boys scrapped hard. The stronger boys could time the ball better on that and get the most out of it. We did well to scrap to 148."

"The bowlers did a terrific job. The lengths they bowled was outstanding and how we used the long boundaries on one side was crucial. He (Unadkat) is doing nicely and is bowling well upfront. Taking key wickets there as well and deserved to get his hat-trick. Magnificent effort. We have played really well in the last 7-8 games. We have been on a good little run. We don't play for some time and it is time to unwind, look at what we have done and come back," he added.
