Man of the Match

Sam Curran awarded with the Player of the Match award for his stunning performance in bowling. He took the hat-trick in death overs. The Englishman’s performance with the ball, four for 11, was the talk of twitter soon after his feat.

Sam: “Great win for the guys. I tried to put a performance for my team. Luckily enough, we scraped to 166, all the six bowlers were excellent. I have worked a lot on my batting over the last few months. I like to work hard on my batting, bowling and fielding. I have opened in school cricket, but think that was the first time in professional cricket. Hopefully, we keep winning games.

I didn’t really know (about the hat-trick). The crowd got really loud, I couldn’t hear myself. Ash told me what to do. Ryan Harris was standing at the third man region. Against the Iocal batters, I had to ask our players, “Where does he hit?”. Shami got two amazing overs in the end which helped.”
