Man of the Match Liam Livingstone: "We needed this. I'm trying to work on my game to open up the off side as well but I'm sticking with what works over the last couple of years. [Playing the Heat] is a big game. Hopefully we can keep playing well, keep winning and build up momentum as the tournament goes on."
