What Winning Captain, Losing Captain and MOM SAID?
Nicholas Pooran | winning captain – Thank my coaches for giving me the chance to lead the team. My record at winning tosses isn’t good, but we knew we wanted to bat first, just wanted to post runs on the board. It was nice to see Hetty (Shimron Hetmyer) respond after last night. Batting was an issue, but it was pleasing the way they responded tonight. Dwayne asked the question to Polly(Pollard) and it made sense. It was important to have a right-left combination going and hence I pulled myself back a bit, it was important to keep the partnership going, with the wind factor, we knew if we kept wickets in hand, we could go hard. No information on him as yet, I’ll check on him later (on Edwards). We know how passionate Fabian is, he is working hard on his craft. Someone like Hayden Walsh, he works hard day in and out, nice to see him doing well
Aaron Finch | losing captain: The wicket didn’t change throughout, it played pretty well. When your two openers get out early, it puts a lot of pressure on the middle order. 100-plus partnership between Hetmyer and Bravo proved to be the difference. It’s always tough to bowl to left-right combination, especially with the wind blowing like that. We will look to comeback well. Need to win 3 more games to win the series, we will keep working hard.
Shimron Hetmyer | Player of the Match – One of my best innings for me, was hitting quite well, it quite worked out, my role is to bat as deep as possible. I didn’t do anything different, just did the same thing like last game, the partnerships were important. Was looking to bat deep and give the gutsy a chance to bat at the other end. I’m trying to bat well and finish off the innings as well. I have never batted with him before, nice to bat with him, he was just telling me to keep going and do what I did best. Allowed me to trust myself.
