Windies skipper Jason Holder says he is really pleased and credits his boys for their performance. States Hetmyer played really well and took them to a competitive total. Singles out Cottrell's spell to be a game changer. Says those early wickets gave them momentum and those two wickets in one over once again got them back in the game. On being asked about Shimron Hetmyer's performance the Windies skipper said that it is really good to see young players step up to the occasion and says Shimron Hetmyer has been a big player at such a young age for the country. Ends by thanking the crowd for their support.
Man of the Match - Shimron Hetmyer says he just wanted too keep going and rotate the strike. States, him and Bravo wanted to see how far they could go. On his improvement on playing both sides of the pitch, the young batter said he just trying to work it both side of the ground. Says it is a work in progress for him and he is continuing to learn and progress. Insists that he does not want to be a one dimensional player. On being asked how was the mood before they came to field he states the mood was good as usual and they just came out and wanted to do things according to the plan. On being asked about his celebration after the century Hetmyer said it was nothing big but just something for his girlfriend.
England skipper Eoin Morgan says that he always knew it was going to go right till the end. Believes they did a lot of good things today. Says they fielded well and bowled well. States that they were going good with the bat but could not capatalise on it. On facing Sheldon Cottrell the English skipper states that it was his first time facing him and it was a very different challenge. Says he swings the ball in and he is a left-hander so it is difficult. Admits they failed to nail down the partnership today and that cost them.
With the game slipping away from Windies, Jason Holder took the onus on himself and first removed the dangerous Ben Stokes from the crease. He didn't stop there and picked the wickets of Jos Buttler and Tom Curran off consecutive deliveries. That proved to be the match-turning moment and the Windies just capitalized. The bearded boys, Moeen and Adil, put up a fight for a while but once again Sheldon Cottrell returned to do the damage. He finished with a 5-wicket haul and played a key role in Windies' victory.
The chase started on a wrong note for England as they lost both their openers cheaply. Sheldon Cottrell was in his elements as he delivered initial blows to the Englishmen. Post that, Root and Morgan stitched in a handy stand followed by a 99-run partnership between the English skipper and Ben Stokes. Both the batsmen looked set to see the touring team home but then Cottrell was brought back into the attack and he dismissed Morgan. The depth in England's batting meant that they kept the upper hand as yet another vital alliance was formed between Buttler and Stokes. The real action though began from there...
Windies have done it! They have broken the deadlock, their first win over England in ODIs since 2014. In between, they experienced 10 losses in a row. What a turnaround from them! This game swung like a pendulum. Both teams kept bouncing back whenever put under pressure but eventually it was the home team landing the knockout punch. A very entertaining game for the crowd and the series is now levelled 1-1!
