Jason Sangha, the Australia captain said, “Obviously the boys tried hard. Few dropped catches and it wasn't ideal. It may push us to do better in the next game.

“Being the first game of the tournament there might have been some nerves. Execution was the problem. We need to have a day off and back for the next game.

“We thought 300 was a par total. It was a good batting wicket.

“As a captain, I have full confidence in the boys to keep going. Just because we missed two players, we can't say the others are not good enough.”
