Eoin Morgan: “Adapt to conditions better, and negate things we didn’t do well yesterday. Liam Livingstone is still unavailable.”
Kieron Pollard: “Hopeful, but a new pitch, don’t know what it has to offer… see what it does and assess from there. The same team, give the guys another opportunity, we have a big squad but the guys are looking forward to the challenge. Over the years, trying to replicate [has been a challenge]. We are striving to be consistent. Try to do it again.”

Post Match presentation.

Eoin Morgan: “I’m delighted, even with the last quarter of the game, these are the games we want to play in, tight games to work on death hitting and death bowling. But the majority of the day we adapted well, with more intent and clarity. We need to establish the rhythm of the game, not necessarily fluent partnerships … dot, dot, dot, wicket, boundary. But we countered what West Indies had to offer. Every team in the world is trying to get better at death bowling. Conditions got better and the ball skidded on, but we need to find better execution, we’d like it to be up there with the best in the world. The majority of our plans was yorkers, to defend the wide side… and we missed.”

Kieron Pollard: “We lost wickets in clusters but the way we fought at the back end, they can hit the ball a long way, and the confidence that Akeal has… and Shepherd wants to put up his hand and take responsibility. [Spin] has been a thorn for us, we will overcome it, we are working diligently but the biggest disappointment was our fielding display. But confidence is high and it augurs well for the next three games.”

Moeen Ali, the Player of the Match: “Jas was going really well, I was quite fortunate, hung in there, he stepped it up beautifully. We thought we got a good score in the end, but they played well. CJ at the end played a great knock. A lot more clear now without playing red-ball, but you never quite win the game with the way they played. Me and Rash, we’ve played together quite a bit, and he makes it easier for me when the guys come after me.”
