We were unlucky. Losing early wickets was not a good thing and really lacked a substantial partnership to win the game and that’s the reason we were outplayed.

We’re not feeling the pressure of favorites. We’re calm. We win the game and we go through. We just have to put a good performance in one match, if not two.

Confidence isn’t something came from being the favorite. It came from how you rebuild it after stumbling, going back to the point where your strength lies and stick to it.

You can’t win the tournament unless you reach the semifinal. That’s the first bit ticked off.

It was a great team performance. We didn’t let them take advantage and our bowlers did a great job. England is an outstanding team who can apart you at any stages in a game but we found our way to get wickets constantly and kept their batsmen at bay
