Munro also expressed his admiration for the team’s aggressive approach during the match. “I think the way we went out and tried to be aggressive and put the pressure on the bowlers was outstanding,” he said. He also observed that the wicket had a slightly uneven nature with some areas having grassy patches and some with bay patches, causing the ball to behave differently wherever it landed. Despite this, the team remained positive in their outlook and was fortunate to have a successful outcome.
