It is a fantastic feeling. Was happy that I could put in some contribution. I will do whatever the team needs me to do. The team comes first. I think when I was batting with Kyle, we talked about taking some calculative risks which helped us go over the line.– Corbin Bosch
Winning the toss helped. Was a very good wicket. Restricting them to 169, I was very pleased. The boys with the ball were superb and the batters were clinical. We have got a balanced squad.– David Miller, Barbados Royals Skipper
