It was a good win for us at the end of the day. It gives us a bit of confidence going into the next game against Australia.

We've made a number of releases on the subject, and if it happens again, how we react will be another thing. If it's still going on at grounds, then we're going to be very disappointed and unhappy about it. But since Sydney we haven't had too many problems on the field, so we'll take each game as it goes.

We're disappointed we lost but we're going to have to pick ourselves up again.

He really just puts you under pressure from the word go and he certainly did that today.

Coming in to today I felt a lot better about my game. I was more settled and a lot calmer in my head and obviously bowling well does add to your confidence.

I think our inexperience showed and maybe our lack of depth at the moment.

We bowled superbly in this test match.

It seems that Kepler is looking for a fight.
