Babar says: uncertainty about the weather has meant he feels it’s better to chase a target. “No pressure, we’re trying our level best to win this match and play good cricket,” he concludes. Both sides are unchanged
Kieron Pollard: “It’s been long and tough over the past few weeks, but now we’ve got one last crack ahead of the World T20. Guys like Dwayne Bravo have one last opportunity to play on West Indian colours. They have done fantastic for us and we want to give them a win at the end.

Post Match Presentation.
“We couldn’t execute our plans, of course, because we didn’t have much cricket,” laughs Babar. “We were looking to experiment ahead of the series, switching up batting positions. But the weather’s not in our control, sadly.
“Staying away from family is difficult, but credit goes to my team and the management for taking care of their fitness and getting good results.
“We’re looking forward to the Test matches, and we want to bring the same intensity to the Test series that we brought here. We need to work hard and do as well as possible. But we’ll enjoy the T20 victory now.”
Actually, I’m around for the presentations, which we suddenly have pictures from. Kieron Pollard’s up talking about the series, expressing disappointment for the series defeat. Expresses the importance of match play and continuing to improve ahead of the World T20. “Each and every person who’s in a bubble understands the value of getting breaks,” he concludes. Which, of course, West Indies have ahead of the T20 World Cup now.
