WHO SAID WHAT?
David Wiese | Player of the Match – We got tied down in the middle, with the spinners holding their way. So, we (himself and Tim David) had to go hard in the last few overs, thankfully, the bowlers lost their line a bit and we cashed in. Unbelievable (on his 5-wicket haul), sometimes it does work out. Everyone bowled well and I got the wickets today, that’s how the game goes. We tried to keep it out of his hitting zone (on Pollard), sometimes such things work out. We’re enjoying it at the moment and making it to the final is a great achievement
Pollard: Good pitch. They came out positive right from the toss. Have to give them credit. They were the better team. Proud of the boys and the way they fought. Throughout the tournament the guys have been fantastic. Well played to the opposition. A lot of people around the world would’ve loved to see the back of us, and there you have it. Ravi Rampaul coming back to the CPL and bowling well, Akeal Hosein bowled well for us. These things happen and we have to accept it. Will sit back and watch the final tomorrow, and may the best team win.
Fletcher: Great feeling. Last year we got to the final but couldn’t get over the line. This year we wanted to get back there, prove it wasn’t a fluke. Mark played very well. That set them back. I was encouraging him, saying to trust his ability. We knew it wasn’t over. Most important thing was to take the rate as high as possible before Pollard comes in.
