To get despatched in on a wicket that was seaming round … Woakesy bowled a hell of a spell. There’s groups that you’ve got a bit extra confidence if you stroll out and play. It was nipping round and seaming however we performed properly to rein it in, and money in on width.”

I believe England are a stand-out facet who can take you aside with ball and bat fairly rapidly. It was good that we discovered methods to maintain getting wickets.
“Behrendorff bowled superbly, we’ve you’ve received a man who can swing the ball again down the road to the suitable handers, that’s an asset. And Warner is taking part in properly, folks say it’s not the Warner of outdated, however there’s bowling that calls for respect, and as we speak was near his greatest. You’re trying to be constructive, however he received us off to a superb begin. We’re assured with what we’ve received, and we’ve gained 5 World Cups in our historical past,” he added.
England captain Eoin Morgan mentioned: “I assumed quite a lot of as we speak we had been outplayed, Australia performed and missed lots and constructed a superb partnership, and us dropping early wickets wasn’t excellent. The wicket was mushy once we began, batting would have been a horrific resolution. They dominated till the 25th however to limit them to 280 was a superb effort. However to be 20 for Three pegs us dangerous significantly. Given the circumstances it’s not vastly disillusioned, our destiny is in our personal fingers. All the pieces we have to flip round is sort of easy, the fundamentals have allow us to down, and hopefully we are going to enhance on them shifting ahead.”
