    It was a professional play from them.

    Hello everyone,

    I was watching a sports channel. Two teams were playing cricket match. Let's say team x and team y were playing. Team x played very well and won the match.

    The channel broadcasts a program right after each match ended. A host/anchor has two or three expert guests, in that program, who analyze each game played.

    The host/anchor asks one of the guests "So, how was team x's performance"?

    the guest replies "It was a professional play from them".

    Shouldn't the preposition "by" be placed instead of "from"?

    Both work.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
