 Kyle looks like he is almost fully fit; he probably is fully fit. We've got a long break between now and the next game so I'm pretty confident all 15 guys will be available.

 We did not expect to win this easily, but it helps us going into our next game against Australia which is huge. We need to stand up and perform against Australia. We wanted to bat first on this wicket that turned out to be a bit of up and down, and times tricky. We bowled well and our bowlers were dangerous,
