Captains View


We are bowling first. They have got a big batting order. We want to restrict them and chase it down. Nurul, Nasum are not playing. Soumya and Taskin come in. We wanted more pacers because of the left-handers they have, which is why Nasum isn’t playing today.


We don’t have anyone else to blame, but ourselves. The clarity has been there but the team hasn’t batted well. This is the perfect opportunity to put it right. Two changes, Simmons misses out, Roston Chase makes his international T20 debut.

Hayden Walsh makes way for Jason Holder. Gayle will be opening. Universe Boss has over 13000 runs opening the batting. It’s not just about one individual, the team has to come good.

Man of the Match

Nicholas Pooran

Definitely a tactical move batting down. Our batting hasn’t clicked so far and we have been chopping and changing. I felt like I had to raise my hand up and perform for the team after Polly left. I have been working very hard.

I have been a doing a lot of right things. I hadn’t been doing justice to myself. I have always been positive about my skills and attitude. It’s tough managing all the players. I must commend the guys.

It was important (to win today). We didn’t take all our catches, but the energy was good and the belief was always there. Had faith in the experienced bowlers. Akeal has been bowling well for us in the tournament, just felt Chase was not needed on that wicket because back of a length from the pacers was tough to hit.

Told him (Russell) the over before, make up your mind whatever you have to defend. He executed, thankful to him. Happy for him. He looks fine, the medical team is assessing him. Even with that injury, walking back to bat and hitting that vital six. We can see why he has been a wonderful leader.

We as young players look up to that. We would like to someone like that in the future. At the end of the day, very happy.
