Narine: It was a hard wicket and it was a batting paradise so you just had to bowl over and over again to try and make something happen. I think we have about three days before the next game so there is some time to recover. I saw that the wicket wasn’t helping me much so I just kept trying different variations with the seam.

Sunil Narine is the MoM

Sammy: I think the team is playing really well. The way we came out in this Test match was very nice, we played well on a hard wicket. The quality of bowling has been good on a difficult wicket. We stuck to our plans and in the end we were victorious. Credit must go to Chris and Powell, they put us in a good position with the way they batted. I keep asking Narine if he is ok with bowling so many overs but I guess he is just like Ravi and he wants to keep bowling. Ravi has a slight groin strain, but he was really fired up and he asked for one more over just when I was going to change the bowling and I had to extend his spell. It was good because it yielded a wicket for us.

Taylor: I thought we were in the game for parts of it but we didn’t bat as well as we should have and we didn’t take 20 wickets. Credit to West indies they played really well. I think the middle order struggled, we need to step up in the next game. We didn’t look like creating enough pressure and we let them score freely at over 5 an over. The pitch obviously was a good deck, you could tell by the amount of runs scored. We need to be smarter about the way we play and we will have to bowl in better areas.
