It was a good wicket to bowl. We did well to get 154. They had a star studded batting line-up but we had a plan on how to bowl to them. Our target was to score 140+.– Imad Wasim
There was talk of us not beating TKR in a long time. So we wanted to do that and we came out strong, especially after the powerplay. It is a bit difficult in the morning to bat with the ball nipping around.– Rovman Powell, Jamaica Tallawahs Skipper
