“He, of course, scored 48 runs while batting, which was slightly chancy. Two very easy catches were dropped – one by Mohammed Siraj and the other by Harshal Patel. Nitish Rana gained from that. After that, his captaincy won your heart because he got so much spin in the first six overs and then used spin repeatedly. They played David Wiese, but he didn’t feel David Wiese would be able to do that, so he got Andre Russell,”
