New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson admitted the game against West Indies was too ‘close for comfort’ for it as it sneaked a narrow win.
“He’s got very good hands,” said Williamson of Boult. Williamson, who was also adjudged the Player of the Match, said it wasn’t the side’s best fielding performance. “We put a few down, but that made way for an outstanding finish. It was a little bit too close for comfort. Those sorts of games are great and we were fortunate to be on the right side of the result.”
West Indies skipper Jason Holder said it was a tough game for his team. “I’m proud of the guys, especially Carlos, who had a good innings. He had a good knock that really set the tone for us. It’s pretty tough, but there are still a lot of positives.” With three points from six games, West Indies is almost out of the contention for making it to the semi-finals and Holder believes the team will now play for pride in the remaining matches.
