Captains View

Aaron Finch

We will bowl. It looks like a really good wicket and won’t change throughout the 40 overs, will try to do some early damage with the ball. If you have to win the tournament then you have to win both ways. But on this surface if there’s any kind of moisture then it will be first up. We won’t think about it (NRR). We have come here to take two points. Same team.

Kieron Pollard

Obviously these guys, all of us have done over the last decade or so for the T20 game is just amazing. It is unfortunate that we couldn’t get that one last hurrah in terms of getting to the next phase of the tournament.

But today is another opportunity, it will be emotional for some but the important thing is to try and win the cricket game to salvage something. We are aware of all aspects, everything is at the back of our minds and we are wary about what run rates needed.

But it comes to nothing if you don’t win games. One change; Hayden Walsh comes in for Rampaul.

Player of the Match

David Warner 

It felt satisfying to be there and hitting the winning runs. The key was to come out and play my natural game, target the bowlers up front. Obviously the slow bowlers bowling with the new ball there needs to be some adjustment, especially with Akeal Hosein who was swinging it and hard to get away with.

For me it is about targeting the first two balls of the over and Mitch Marsh coming in and playing that knock was outstanding.

They (the bowlers) have been outstanding. Last game was clinical and tonight to come out and bowl the way they did, we knew they would come hard at us and would keep coming even if they lost three wickets, to restrict them to a competitive total was a good job.

DJ has been the benchmark for all the players coming out of the Caribbean, Chris as well for all opening batters around the world, he sets a high standard and I look up to him.
