I am happy with the way I have been bowling recently - TvdG

20 May 2021 | Cricket

A frustrating day in Canterbury saw play start after a 5 1/2 hour delay, only for rain to cut it short again with only 22 overs bowled, as the hosts finished on 70/2.

Timm van der Gugten ended the day with figures of 4-4-0-2, with the wickets of Robinson and Crawley, and was pleased with the side's efforts, amidst the return of crowds and the effects of the weather.

"We had the four seasons out there in a day - a bit of sun, a bit of rain, a bit of wind. They were testing conditions and we did our best to haul them back after they got off to a good start.

"Luckily I got to bowl with the wind. It was easier than coming up the slope, but I've been happy with the way I've been bowling recently and it was nice to get a couple of wickets.

"It was nice to see the crowd, but we didn't really hear them much.

"We were filling in time by doing crosswords for most of the day and learning some new words."
