“It was a tricky day’s cricket, it was a tricky 4 days cricket. We have dominated this match however the fight-back from Gloucestershire on a really flat wicket was commendable and anticipated, then the trouble all through the day by our massive quick bowlers was past perception.
“The sunshine was a problem and added some nerves to the dressing-room however we deserved that win. This floor would not hand over wins simply, traditionally it is a very flat pitch- it’s important to be excellent to get a win and we have been on this recreation.”
