Speaking post play, Head Coach Jason Gillespie was positive ahead of day four -“We’re here to win this game of cricket and that will be the plan. We understand it will be a challenging chase on day four, but we’re here to win games of cricket.

“I thought Jordan ran in hard the whole game. He’s bowled 47 overs for the match, and he was really impressive. Wonderful effort from him and he as rewarded with seven wickets. But I thought all the fast bowlers ran in hard today and gave it their all. I can’t fault the effort of the lads. 

“We know it will be a challenge tomorrow but you have to be positive and that is certainly what we will be doing.”
