    Welsh Fire captain Ben Duckett said: "Moeen Ali changed the game the way he played. It was tough to come back from that. We wanted to get good starts with the bat but we have lost wickets in the powerplay.

    "There's not a lot you can say following the defeat, they won convincingly. All we can do is try to finish the competition with a couple of wins.

    "Captaincy has been tough and a learning experience for me. I try to keep a smile on my face. I will say I have enjoyed it!"

  6. 'Nobody could catch Immy!'

    Birmingham Phoenix skipper Moeen Ali, speaking to Sky Sports after his side's victory, said: "Nobody could catch Immy Tahir during his celebration there. He was too quick! His bowling was outstanding.

    "I think the way we scored the runs was impressive. It turned out to be a good toss to lose. Will Smeed is growing and getting better which is great for us and also for English cricket. We knew it had to be a be a good score.

    "Myself? It was a good wicket to bat on and I feel that against spinners I am confident. I haven't been too premeditated and try to keep my shape as long as I can. We have stumbled across a good batting line-up."

  8. 'Every opportunity is an honour for me'

    Hero of the match Imran Tahir, speaking to Sky Sports after his hat-trick said: "I think our batters set the tone for us and gave us a big total to defend. Our seamers did a good job in the first four or five overs. My job is to take wickets and I have done that.

    "I have to say that coming here to play in front of the crowds here is a great feeling. I hope they keep supporting The Hundred and the cricket."

    On his celebrations: "Look I don't think things for granted in cricket Every opportunity is an honour for me. I need to be sincere to my job. I knew what I was going to bowl for the hat-rick ball. I bowled a quick googly and it worked."
