In the presentation party the winning captain spoke: “Honestly, I felt we would have felt to play out of our skin to chase them. But there’s a lot of talent in our team if we play with freedom. It’s been going for just under a year now, we’ve had some big chases. But to get a start like that, Roy and Hales were outstanding. We’ll take a lot of confidence. We came a little unstuck against Gayle, but tonight we finished well with the ball – it was just the first six overs. Batsmen are finding different ways of scoring.”
Joe Root was awarded the player of the match award.
