I believe we have picked a team that covers all the fields. A team that is expected to have the depth to succeed.” He said, “Tymal Mills is what he deserves and he has shown it over the years. But especially this summer he has all the skills to be successful at this level. His pace is exceptional, and the way he has played for Sussex and Southern Brave in short-form games shows that he can handle the pressure of the big stage with ease.”
