was able to find the gap
Speaking after the match, Latham said, “It was just one of those days when everything went well. Shared a partnership with Williamson and had a bit of fun, just reacted to things and it paid off. It’s about being in strong positions and reacting to what they were bowling. I was able to find the gap.”
