Presentation Ceremony

Here is Johnson Charles, the Man of the Match who says : "Feels very good. We basically want to win the tournament and it feels good to do well. It's a similar pitch to the one in England. It's hard to score if it's pitched back of a length. Finn was difficult to score off, you had to spend time in the middle before scoring runs. It's great to play with Gayle, it's just a matter of staying with him and the runs will come."
Charles is the Man of the Match

Darren Sammy, the West Indies Captain says: "It was a very good performance. Charles and Gayle did well with the bat. We knew the wicket and the bowlers did well to defend the total. Looking at the other games player here, we were looking for 200. It gets difficult to stop the batsmen once they get going. Narine, Gayle and Marlon in the end were good. Unfortunately Russell didn't get to bowl and I bowled only 1 over; the plan was to bowl spin at England."

Stuart Broad, the losing Captain says: "We had to regroup after the first over. Losing two wickets at the top hurts a lot but Morgan was brilliant. We were quite happy with the bowling effort. Maybe 20 runs more would have been a par score I guess. Morgan has an amazing skill of finding the boundaries even when the field is back. The surface was a batsman's paradise. It was hard to stop boundaries. It was a below par score and we should have chased it down."
