Southee (NZ): Winning the toss on that wicket, and taking wickets upfront was the plan. Wasn't a typical wicket. We took early wickets which blunted them. He's been playing great cricket at the domestic competition (talking about Seth Rance). They took couple of early wickets. Was a great knock from Colin. Mature innings. He was supported by Brucey and Ross coming in. It's a good culture in the team.
Sarfraz Ahmed (PAK): We're not batting well enough up the order. New ball was swinging and bouncing, we didn't keep wickets in hand. They bowled very well with the new ball. Our bowlers bowled really well. If we had a score of 140-150, could have been a good match.
Colin Munro( MoM): Pleasing for me and the team to get home. Tricky wicket. It was about batting as much as I can. Wicket was a little bit up and down, but won't say it was a shocker. At the halfway mark we were pretty happy to restrict them to that. I've evolved over the last 12-18 months. I've found a formula. It's about getting into good positions. I hit Shoaib Malik on the head last game and got one back.
