While praising him, Powell said, “He plays really well, plays a role very well. Keeps things tight. On a good surface, he bowled really well.”

Hailing Shai Hope and Next Aim:

Apart from the bowling domination in the first innings, the second innings witnessed a batting masterclass. While chasing the target of 129, Shai Hope was in domination mode. While opening the innings, he scored an exciting half-century. He played an unbeaten knock of 82 runs in 39 balls. After the match, Powell praised them. He said, “He’s been fantastic, he got a chance against Afghanistan but was dropped next game against England in St Lucia because of the combination. However, he was hungry for a good performance.”

In the next match, West Indies will meet South Africa. As both teams are in exceptional form, the match will be thrilling. While talking about this, Powell said, “It (WI vs South Africa) should be a top game, we are up for the fight. We got a full house here to support us, that’s all we can ask for.”
