“It’s been a really enjoyable season,” he said. “We’ve got a good young side.
“We’ve got a reputation of having a lot of paid players but none of our players are.
“Everyone is aged between 18 and 26. So I think with that there’s a good atmosphere in the team.
“We’re all going to be here a while, we all enjoy each other’s company and we enjoy playing our cricket.
“I’ve had a great season, absolutely loved it so I’ll come back.
“I’m just glad it’s over, it’s mid-September. I can’t be playing too many more games in that temperature.
“We’ll enjoy having a break from cricket for a few months but then look forward to coming back.”
