Captain’s word

Holder: ‘It was a wonderful performance. Sammy, Russell all put their hands up and took us to 300. Jerome Taylor was excellent up front and I supported him well. I was very excited, we lost the first game and we needed to make amends.’

Misbah: ‘Of course, tough day, especially after winning the toss, there was a little bit in the pitch and we couldn’t exploit that. The partnership took the game away from us. Credit should be given to the West Indians as they cashed in, in the last 5-6 overs. The guys up front are struggling. The first 10 overs, in New Zealand conditions, they bowled really well. It was seaming. It was always difficult, performances like this dent you and damage you. In these tournaments, you have to really pick yourselves up. They have been in good form, they have batted well in the practice games. Individual performances, one or two won’t win you the game’
