Kent pacer Navdeep Saini reflected on his excellent performance against Warwickshire as he helped his team win by 177 runs. Playing in his first game for Kent this season, Saini scalped seven wickets, including a five-wicket haul in the first innings.

Saini was adjudged the Man of the Match for his match-winning spell against Warwickshire. Speaking with Kent Cricket on social media after winning the award, Saini said:

"I was playing a warm-up match in Leicester. So after playing that match, I decided I want to play county cricket. I am learning a lot of things here and my bowling is getting better and better. The weather changes here frequently. Sometimes, it is cloudy and then the sun is out."
