Mark Wood: "We started brilliantly I thought. Obviously to get two wickets early was really good and we finished really well too. The spinners also bowled really well in the middle overs. We kept having a squeeze on them and never let them get off the hook. A team performance overall. I think I am in the form of my career and I need to keep this going I guess. The pitch seem to be gripping a bit, the spinners said the same and so we used a lot of slower balls and cutters. Angelo played really well but we did well to contain them. I hope so (that England can chase this), I hope I am not needed because that means we'll be in trouble."
