Post Match Presentation

Jos Buttler:

“Conditions were different, didn’t adapt quickly enough. 160 would have been good. A really good effort with the ball. Salt’s had a fantastic series, back to back hundreds, found out lots about ourselves, take the learnings and try to improve. The breeze plays a big part here, big premium on six-hitting, had a great time coming here to the Caribbean.”

Rovman Powell:

“Special thanks to the people of Trinidad and Tobago. Spent some time yesterday having meetings, still a good bowling team. Losing wickets at a key time but Shai Hope was the key man, grafting in the middle order. Served our batting group well. Credit to the groundsmen across the Caribbean. Credit to them, hats off, they did fantastic. We found players standing up and in good teams that happens. I have a good bunch of guys around me, they respect me and trust my judgment. I try to lead and the guys follow.”

The Player of the Match is Gudakesh Motie:

“I know my ability, the pitch was assisting, put the ball in the right area. It was important to hit my length. I’ve been working on it over the years and I see it as my strength. It’s my second series, means a lot to me, total team effort.”

The Player of the Series is Phil Salt:

“Disappointing to come out on the wrong side, but we’ll be better for the coming months. I feel good at the minute, learning off Jos, keep trying to take in as much as I can. It’s been a challenge, a lot more on the toss in this part of the world. A big part of the game. You’ve always got more time than you think.”
