“I thought we were done, to be honest,” admitted the relieved Marsh. “Timmy David is extremely calm and had a lot of confidence in his ability towards the end. We are very lucky to have him. It was a great game of cricket.” The three-match series is the last for both teams before the T20 World Cup in the United States and West Indies in June.
