Unbelievable stuff to be honest: Henry Thornton
Henry Thornton was named the Player of the Match for his scintillating spell with the ball as he bagged 5 wickets including a maiden over in his spell. "Have no clue what's going on, it's amazing. We thought they bowled really, really well considering what the wicket was doing, but we hung in there long enough.
Haven't seen anything similar to this ever, unbelievable stuff to be honest. We just thought that if we could bowl on top of the stumps, we were clear on what we have to execute," Henry Thornton was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"I think we got a lot of nick-offs and Short took one of the best catches at first slip. Really happy for Wes Agar, he bowled really well. Was super disciplined, great performance by him. Pretty unique (bowling with three slips), I just couldn't believe it.
(Chris) Lynn was like if you want two or three slips, it was quite amazing. To have guys like Lynn next to you, it's amazing. To be honest I couldn't believe it. Thought 150 would be good but turned out to be enough," he added.
