On Bowling Performance:

West Indies nailed at their bowling. They didn’t let the Kiwi batters to dominate them. They restricted them in 126 runs. While talking about the game, he said, “What the New Zealand bowlers tried to do well we tried to replicate. At the halfway mark we sat down and discussed trying to hit a hard length and our spinners to spin the ball. We have got to use what we have, we don’t have fast bowlers like New Zealand.”

Later he hailed the spinners, “Credit to them (spinners) even with a wet ball, they did well. Such a brilliant night and someone had to stand up and be counted.”
