Last Wicket: TL Chatara 16(20)

Over 45.0  

Holder: Very pleased. The way we batted was just exceptional. The two guys took the game straight down the end and just finishes it for us. He took us in excess of 300 and it was very important. We wantewd to give our bowlers something to bowl. We have some areas we can improve on. Having said that, having just 4 fielders outside the circle is difficult. It is obviously a proud moment. I hardly had to do anything with it, but I am very happy. It is quite important, Chris is a very important player for us and it is great to have him back in form.

Chigumbura: It's been the weakness so far, the three games we have played so far. A lot of work to be done. Gayle played a massive innings today. I think we will be fine, but he is a kind of player who is destructive. We need to forget about today and focus on the last part of the innings we are bowling. The way we went out there, it was great. Hopefully, our bowling will come good. We are not executing our skills and we need to work hard on our death bowling. If you bowl well during the death, it makes a massive difference. We need to go back to the drawing board.

Chris Gayle is the Man of the Match 
That's it and West Indies win by 73 runs (D/L method)

Over 44.3 CH Gayle bowls it short of length to T Kamungozi, out Bowled!!. Another comprehensive win for the Caribbean team. It was the quicker one from Miller, Chatara was looking to push at it, he gets an inside edge onto the pad and the ball crashes into the stumps. Chatara b Nikita Miller 16(20)
