Cottrell, Player of the Match: I did not expect this, but we all executed it well. Our plan to Kieron was to bowl hard lengths into the pitch and it worked out well. We know every game is tough, and we just try to execute our plans. It's about being a step ahead of the batsman and preparation is the key for me

Gayle: We sent them into bat, and they did not bat well. These things happen, and it went according to our plan. Captaincy is key as players look up to the leader. We have one more against Barbados before we go home.

Pollard: Everything (what went wrong?). I had a conversation with the guys, we start at 0 for 0 and not from the last match. No batsman took the initiative and hung in there. I stress about not being complacency. That wasn't the be all and end all of it and we're back to square one. We need to win four matches, two home games in a row.

That's all we have for you tonight. Cheers

Qais to Cooper, OUT

Short googly, spins in from outside off, chopped off an inside edge to square leg. There's a mix-up between the wickets and both Cooper and Thomas are scampering towards the non-striker's end. They are racing each other, Cooper comes second, and is caught short. Bizarre dismissal

King falls with his team 10 away from victory. King shuffles a long way across off for a sweep and is hit on the pad outside the line of off. But this has been given. Another shocking decision from the umpire

banged in short and angling away wide outside off, King, having backed away outside leg, reaches out for the ball and scythes it over the covers like a boss
