Man Of The Match ( Marcus Stoinis ) :
It’s a strange game, luck is going to happen occasionally, but the hero is easy to be a villain. So enjoying the good day is crucial. I am trying to shut down the bowls zones, and it succeeded. The energy of all is necessary to feed. It’s cool fantastic time, I thought that Kagiso Rabada had a lovely bowling over so I had no trouble not to beat in the super over. I think the combination left and right was the right thing.
