Man of the Match – George Munsey
George Munsey(after the match) –“The injury is not fantastic, but it’s ok. We’ll assess our performance tonight and make the best effort we can for the rest of the week. I’m always trying to become better, but I felt the boys did a great job. We fought in the field as everyone else does; men took their catches, and Watty (Mark Watt) bowled with outstanding figures and class. A really strong performance was given. I enjoyed the beginning and found it a little difficult after the break, but I always enjoyed playing here in Australia. The boys took the heat off of me in the middle after that rain delay. We proceeded in this way because we were confident we had enough on the board to defend.”
Berrington(Scotland Captain): “It’s a unique victory for us. Over the past year, a lot of effort has gone into this. incredibly pleased with the boys. T20 cricket has not been played as frequently as we would have wanted (Scotland played only 2 T20Is between World Cups). But because we participated in a lot of 50-over cricket, it was crucial that we carried over those skills to T20 cricket. After the good start, we continued to consider a few. But we were aware that this was a tough score. The bowlers were outstanding. In the powerplay, Mark Watt excelled, and he frequently claims significant wickets. Leask had four straight superb overs today.”
