Liam Livingstone Said, ‘I did not think that my batting would come. However, it was good to bat in the end. I told Mayank that I can go before you. To this the coach said that if Shikhar Dhawan is out, Mayank Agarwal will go and if Bhanuka Rajapaksa is out, I will go. We played smart. We will try to take away as much positive as possible from this match.
Mayank Agarwal Said, ‘We want to win consecutive matches from here. I told Jonny Bairstow that you go, I will anchor the innings. Livingston also went before me. He also scored fast. Strike rate was the thing in mind. What he did is outrageous. Kagiso Rabada bowled well. Because of this we got a chance to face the small target. After this there was a good partnership between Shikhar and Rajapaksa.
