After New Zeland’s innings, Henry Nicholls said,
“When Ross and I went out after lunch, it was a case of keeping it simple and expecting that the ball was going to turn and beat the bat sometimes. ’ It’s just comfortable with that. We did a nice job for a while there,” Nicholls said. “We know on these surfaces in the subcontinent when you do get a wicket sometimes it can turn into two or three. Conditions were tough at times. The ball certainly spun a little earlier than we thought, but we expected it to be turning.”
“The game ebbed and flowed a bit through that middle session. Ross and I were able to score between 3.5 to 4 an over for a while there. We expect it to be like that – ebbing and flowing. When the ’ball’s a bit harder and ’it’s turning a bit sharper, it will be tougher. But when you bring the seamers back, while they bowled well at times, you were also able to score a bit faster,” Nicholls said.
“For me, trying to find a balance between defence and being comfortable with the ball turning the way it did, was important. First-innings runs in this part of the world are massive. ’We’re expecting it will get harder to bat on. ’It’s nice that Ross is not out overnight and is batting so beautifully.” he said.
