Player of the Match: Chris Jordan

It was a bit of a must-win game for us. We are in a knockout situation. To restrict them to 150, we were happy and then the boys knocked it off. We try not to hit panic stations. We have not hit our mark as well as we would have liked but we know the potential in our team. Any bowling line-up coming up against McDermott, he will always be feared. We are on the road for three games or so, and it can be a good period for the team to galvanize and get some hard away wins. We will take the win tonight and take every game as it comes.
