Man of the match Anrich Nortje said,
“100 percent, it’s (playing IPL in the UAE) helped me quite a lot. It’s helped us as well-being suitable to give some information to the platoon on conditions, that’s presumably the situation for all the players in all the brigades. Having the confidence to know the conditions and understand what to do and when to do it has surely helped me come then. It was a good gate, analogous to the IPL, playing around with the ball with the grip – surely, it brings in some redundant variation and commodity differently to the bowlers. It’s always nice working with him (Rabada), his ideas and knowledge about games in the situation. It’s not a lot about skill presently; it’s about understanding and communication on the field. It’s really nice to have him around. We said we were relatively happy with what happened in the game (against Australia). With the fur, we wanted to ameliorate. What the guys did out there was stupendous. Hopefully, we can make it on this. I don’t suppose we’re close to a perfect game, but we can keep on the structure and try to get as close to that perfect game as possible. That’s all I want to do – just keep on perfecting every day”.Man of the match Anrich Nortje
