WHO SAID WHAT?
Dominic Drakes | – I just turned the tide. I have been playing (in this tournament) for three years, but this was my first real chance this season. This isn’t just for me, this is for (Dwayne) Bravo, this is for the team. I just wanted to do it for the team, I wanted to serve the purpose (for which I was selected). I had promised to give him the jersey – Thank you father (Vasbert Drakes, the former West Indies international), this is for you
Joshua Da Silva: Words can’t describe. To see my best friend (Drakes) hit the winnings runs was fantastic. The support we have had here has been phenomenal. He (Dwayne Bravo) is the God, can’t ask for anything more, best in the business.
Simon Helmot | Coach, St. Kitts and Nevis – I am so proud (of the team), it has been such an unbelievable effort, to get the tournament going, in this Covid atmosphere, a lot has been done to get the tournament running (on the backroom staff who worked hard to deliver the tournament). He’s the future for West Indies cricket (on Dominic Drakes), I love watching him, he’s one of the upcoming talents. We were a batsmen short today, but the way he went out and played, some of his shots and the maturity he showed, it was unbelievable
Fabien Allen: I knew it was going to happen. Just backed myself. Everyone was shaking. I said in the meeting that we have the belief and that’s what happened.
