Kane brought us a respectable total, but I take full responsibility because it was a total I probably hit 15 good shots on the outfield, I couldn’t do much about it. They’re the ones who make or break your inning. It gets frustrating as a batsman when you find outfielders. We had 170 on the board, but we didn’t make it. to take a wicket plate and it’s always hard (to get back) on a good surface like this, “Warner said in the post-match presentation.
