Pretty simple plan, to go there in the powerplay and express myself. Keep things simple, I’m used to opening the bowling and it was about using the conditions. I was a bit concerned with Faf and Alzarri scoring after the rain delay, it became a good pitch.

– Kyle Mayers

It was 92 needed off 5 overs, you think we’d close it off but they batted really well. Happy that we could ultimately close it off. The weather is what it is, we can’t control it. We thought it would be slow and turn, but it came on pretty well and so we started off with Kyle Mayers.

– David Miller, Barbados Royals Skipper
