Previous Match Reviews:
Chris Gayle: We are disappointed. 191 was tough and we didn’t start well. We have a long way to go, hopefully we shall pick ourselves up. The new ball was coming onto the bat nicely but in the middle overs the ball was stopping and coming. Their spinners were brilliant. I wanted to hit Billy (says jokingly), no offence but glad it didn’t hit the umpire. We have two home games now, hopefully we can win both.
Gilchrist praised the young domestic players of his team including wicketkeeper-batsmen Nitin Saini and Mandeep Singh and medium pacer Parvinder Awana, saying he is impressed with their performance and now it was up to them to carry it forward.
“I am impressed with his mindset,” he said about Saini and Awana, he said, “He is an exciting prospect though I am not sure he understands all the words I say (referring to language problem).”
Vettori: You always look back on those dropped catches as things that could have changed the game. We go home to Bangalore for a week and play on a ground we know really well and enjoy playing on.
