What is the captain’s reaction after the winning?

“He’s such an experienced player, especially on wickets like these. He comes in day in and day out, he practices his skills and he’s so skilled. It’s not easy in this heat to bowl four overs back-to-back, sometimes three overs back-to-back. But he comes in, bowls those yorkers, slower ones, and mixes it so well”.

“The credit has to go to him for practising those skills and to be able to have the confidence to execute them in the match. In this heat, wherever we play in the day match, it’s easier to score with the new ball. Once the ball gets old and the wickets get slow, it’s difficult to hit those sixes, especially on the longer side and that was our plan – to be able to let them hit the slower ones on the longer side,” said Gill after winning the match.
