A lot of credit has to go to my batting coach: Rovman Powell
After the end of the game, Rovman Powell has been named Player of the Match for his swashbuckling 61 off just 28 balls which helped his side to post a huge total on the board.
"The plan is simple, get a start, get myself in as I can always make it up. Was a very good wicket, unfortunate only two games here, wish we had three games here.
A lot of credit has to go to my batting coach back home, he gave me better options against spin. Their (WI bowlers) execution was good, we did get wickets in the powerplay, getting three sets the match up perfectly in T20Is.
Thanks to the people of Dominica, the fans were fantastic, hats off to them," Rovman Powell was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz in the post-match presentation.
