Kieron Pollard was adjudged Player of the Match and during the post-match presentation, he said: “Very important to get my 300th wicket. I know what I can do in all the facets of the game. I will be more than happy to do what the team needs of me. You try and watch and target whom you can target and not.”

“I enjoyed my 300th wicket which was KL and obviously it’s a landmark and very special. For me, it’s just trying to practice and it’s all about practing and batting according to the situation. I admit that I don’t have pace, swing and seam but I can use my brain and get the job done. For us, it’s very important to get these 2 points and hopefully, this will be the much-needed spark in the dressing room,” he added.
