Glenn Maxwell: AFG played really well, they struck the ball really cleanly. At the start, they put us under pressure in the powerplay. We were able to hold them back but then there was some pretty clean hitting towards the back end, and that gave us a bit of a scare. It was nice to have an impact in the field on his run out. I knew I wasn’t going to have much of an impact with the ball with the conditions here. To have an impact is nice. During the day, it was quite slow, and taking spin, it was holding up a little bit. It was quite hard to press the issue. We got to about the 12th over mark where we just had to put a total on the board to make sure we gave ourselves a chance of winning the game. Even though we were trying to go hard, they bowled extremely well in the last four overs. They executed their plans and it was hard to get away. We’ll be following it Eng vs SL, we put ourselves in this situation, but hopefully Sri Lanka can do the job for us.
