“We didn’t start well with the ball upfront. In the middle overs, we took couple of wickets, but in the end, Rovman took the momentum away from us. And with the bat we didn’t do well too. Shakib played well, but someone from the other end has to play a part. Definitely, when you are chasing 194, you need to attack from the first ball but apart from Shakib and Afif, no one has contributed”
“First as a batting group we tried to put the bowlers under pressure, it’s a part of a template and we did well. We just need to keep this process going on. I felt our spinners bowled well, even the Bangladesh spinners. Akeal read the pitch well. Workload management is very important and it’s important to manage Alzarri Joseph’s workload as he’s been doing well for us from last two months and also the other players. I think this is one of the best fans in the Caribbean [re: support from the crowd acting as the 12th man], the ground staff also worked very hard on both days. Thank you very much.”
Rovman Powell is player of the match:
“The plan was very simple, was trying to get myself in [the first 5 or 10 balls] because I can always make up. King and Pooran batted well. It’s a very good wicket, it’s just unfortunate that we had only 2 games here, we wish we had all the 3 games here in Dominica. A lot of credit goes to my batting coach back at home. I was struggling a little with spin, with whom I worked a lot which helped me. The execution was good [On West Indies bowling], we talked about getting wickets in the powerplay and we did that today. Finally, thanks to the people of Dominica for the support.”
