MLC 2024, Match 7: SFU vs TSK| Captains’ Corner

We needed it. We were good with the batting perspective in the last game. From a batting perspective, it was clinical. We had more bowling options. Stoinis had some finger injury. The batters never got used to a plan or a bowler. Mentally, it is very important. You need to keep working hard every day. The game keeps evolving. Strike-rate is one of the things I have worked upon. You have to evolve. You have to score at above 140 these days as an opener. The game keeps you humble. I still love being around and on the field. The tournament is set up nicely. I look at the overseas players and feel it is up there with international cricket or the IPL. 

Faf du Plessis(TSK Captain) said post-match

We didn’t start too badly. Lost wickets in clumps. TSK kept taking wickets. Pretty disappointing. Just poor execution. Couple of bad options. Such things can happen. I don’t want the guys to put off the gas. These kind of days will happen. But I want the guys to have the freedom. We don’t need to change a hell lot. I will back the guys. We have lot of talent in the camp. Watto has been great. Bringing in a lot of calmness to the group and backing fearless cricket.
