Travis Head told the reason for finishing the match in just 11 overs

Speaking in the post match presentation, Therevisad said, ‘It was good to see the contribution of the players, it is really good to take the partnership forward. We were a little organized today and took our time. In the last game, I went too early to push the run pace. It is good to have the big fellow (Marsh) at the other end when he hits them at the top level. We were hoping that one of us would get out. It is very rare that we both go at the same time. In my entire experience of opening, if one player is going, you try to back him. Today the total was small, both of us wanted to leave. We played very calculated. It was a good partnership, very enjoyable.
