Player of the Match

Shamar Joseph | West Indies

It is actually amazing for me, you know, I just want to turn this way to give a shout-out to my teammates and the management staff for great words of encouragement.

Having a bruised toe to bowl with, but I just go through the phase and pain, knowing that I need to do this for my team and you know for everyone in my country and the Caribbean.

Came down to the crowd, to keep pushing us and actually believing us that we can bring the series to 1-1, thank you guys so much. Where’s Dr. Byom? (Chuckles).

He called me this morning and I was in my bed, then after 11, I was sleeping at 12:15 so he asked me how I was feeling, I said not well, feeling pain and all these things and he said come to the ground, I have a reason.

I don’t know if it was for this reason or not but it was for a good reason, to win the Test match for your team. A shout out to him for keeping believing in me, he knew what I am capable of.

I’m really happy that he got me here and I did really well for my team once again. It was all about getting close, getting to that 5 wickets needed just like 4 more wickets.

Having Alzarri backing me, a senior player Kemar Roach, all the senior fast bowlers believed in me, they supported me a lot throughout the game even though I was emotional and I was crying but those were tears of joy, knowing that I was doing this for my team, those were just tears of joy and happiness.

It is just about believing, making a lot of sacrifices to get here, remembering what you did back then and it is just continuing from what happened in the past, so I just stick to my basics and take advice from the seniors, and that worked for me well.
