Kieron Pollard: We just want to put them under pressure in the early morning. And that has been the trend of the tournament. ‘Just continue’ (is his message to the team). We set out to play 12 games, and we have won 11. Just have to win the 12th. We have one forced change, Narine is missing out. Tough loss for us, he has been great. We are looking to put smiles on faces during this pandemic.
Daren Sammy: The basics of the game don’t change. It’s another final and everyone has to gear up for the challenge. We’ve had silent confidence in our team, used things being said against us as motivation. Now we have an opportunity to go out and play a brand of cricket that we as a Zouks family have wanted to. To top this off with Zouks winning the cup would be very sweet. No changes for us.
