Samson said the team was happy to chase and it was a very good wicket.
“Really great intention shown by almost every batsman. I learned a lot, things became more and more clear. Having the same side for almost every game helps to identify the situation and how to use the longer and longer side short you need to keep changing bowlers depending on the situation There is no set strategy that fast bowlers should play to the death I think anyone with a good temperament and a lot of experience can do the job for the team. He (Yuzvendra Chahal) says he is even ready to play on the 20th, he is confident and he is doing well for the team.”
The captain said he wanted to come out and express himself on the pitch by playing a few shots.
