“Gous played well. Made life tough for us. Couple of tidy overs from us and the margin could have been better. But lessons learnt. Nice start. At the half time, the wicket changed a little. It got slower.” Aiden said.

Accepting the fact that his team needed to learn from the match, he also added that some of the executions had led them down. He was also happy about Quinton de Kock getting his flow back in the game.

“We would have loved to finish with a bang. Couple of lessons to take. Big for us that Quinny got his flow. Everyone else just chipped in. Couple of overs we could have tidied upon. A few executions here and there might have let us down. The wind was strong so I feel the bowlers have done a decent job.” He added.
