I like this batting first. I think in both the first two games, scoreboard pressure chasing probably contributed to our downfall. Setting here should hopefully alleviate some of that.

At least Faf made the right call to bat first, like we should have done both the previous times.

Bumrah is such a quality bowler. We can't just sit I the crease and let him dictate. Got to take him on.

Can't just stand and prod, have to play through the line now. Rather get caught on the fence than in the slips
