Australia skipper Aaron Finch has praised Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade, saying that the duo showed a cool head to get the team over the line vs South Africa in the chase of 119 runs.
“The dugout was relaxed than I was. Quite stressful, and I was nervous. Stoinis and Wade showed a cool head to get us over the line, and that is what a bit of experience can do,” said Finch in the post-match presentation ceremony.
Finch complimented the efforts of the bowling attack in restricting South Africa to a below-par 118/9. “Maxwell did a really good job with the ball. We knew he had good matchups in the power-play. Our whole bowling unit was outstanding.”
Finch also lauded Josh Hazlewood’s special spell where he snapped two wickets.
“Ideally I would have loved to push Hazlewood for a third over in the power-play. He is a world-class bowler. He has accuracy and on a wicket providing variation, it can be tough.”
