“This was the game I was looking for. I felt I was being inconsistent but today the performance was good with bat and ball. Striking the right balance. We talked about losing too many wickets in bunches so the idea was to give ourselves time because in India we can make up ground quickly.As the tournament has progressed spin has played a big role.It’s a bit slower off the wicket so we can bowl our natural lengths. said Gardner after the game.
