When asked how she felt about an innings like this after returning to the field following the quarantine-enforced break, Devine said: “I was really nervous this morning, I think when you have a bit of an extended break away from the game you get nervous about can you come back into it. So it’s nice just to spend some time in the middle and get a few out of the screws.
“For me it was just about playing smart cricket so knowing where my gaps were, trying to manipulate the field. I sort of knew where they would bowl so if I could manipulate myself around the crease, I’d open up areas of the field. Pleased with the way it went today.
“Sometimes I get a little bit carried away and we’ve probably seen it a little bit, and I get a bit over-eager and play some rash shots. So it’s nice to stick to some decent cricket shots today and finish the job.”
