Brandon King should have won the game for us: Nicholas Pooran
Winning the match, the skipper of West Indies, Nicholas Pooran shared a lot in the post-match presentation. "I can finally breathe now. It has been a tough summer for us. We lost a few close games and nearly made a mess of this as well.
Obed (McCoy) was fantastic and all the guys just used the pitch and the conditions well. A win is a win. I believe in T20, better batsmen have to bat long. Myself, (Shimron) Hetmyer can take more responsibility," Nicholas Pooran was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"(Brandon) King should have won the game for us with the way he was batting. But hopefully, he will learn from this. Thomas returned back for us after injury and came out trumps on his home ground. Obed is a bit of a freak and today he was just fantastic.
He just kept picking up wickets for us. He said he would bowl full and straight on the stumps to Dinesh Karthik and it worked. Lovely to have him in the team and have that left-arm action for us," he added.
However, during the game, Arshdeep Singh bowled a perfect yorker to get rid of dangerous Rovman Powell. It was a stunning yorker by the youngster to dismiss the right-handed batsman.
