Porterfield: "The first five overs were crucial. They got away. They fielded really well. They didn't make it easy for us. Our preparation has been good and we will learn a lot from the Super Eights.

McCullum: Redmond played an unbelievable innings. To come in and play an innings like that was great. Hopefully Butler's injury is not serious. He will hopefully be ok.

Man of the match - Redmond "Sometimes, when you are taken off the couch and thrown into action, you have a good day. The boys are doing well."

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. See you later.
