Pollard: I think we did pretty well with the ball. Par score here is 260-270 and being able to restrict them to 250 was a fantastic effort. It is what it is (how does he assess the batting effort?). My biggest thing is I want the guys to fight. We have practiced long and hard enough. Most disappointing factor is we didn't show fight. We knew Australians are very dangerous with the new ball. That's where they look to pounce. If we fight through that, the rest of the attack we can manage. It's a matter of continuing to work hard, understanding my game, understanding my strengths. Just a matter of trying to enjoy it. Mitchell Starc | Player of the Match : It was a special day, we had three debutants. I thought we did a fantastic job to get to 252. A pretty good all-round performance from the group today. We thought there was variable bounce, but a little bit of swing earlier on helped us. My role is similar throughout the white-ball format.

Lost a wicket first ball and were reduced to 27/6 as Starc and Hazlewood ripped through the lineup. Pollard offered some respite from the carnage with a fifty, unleashing on the leg-spin of Zampa.
