“We bowled a little better, even though there were still 23 wides.
‘Most of the time our lines were good and a slow outfield helped keep the runs down.
“Our bowlers kept things tight and Clyst Hydon needed to up the rate, however, they didn't get the chance to really get going.”
Pickard said a crumbly track and a slow outfield meant chasing 138 to win was tougher than it looked.
