Jason Holder is disappointed with the performance
Jason Holder is disappointed to the performance, England ashamed Windies and packed the t-20 series, “It was just one of those games. It was our worst batting performance. We have had more good days than England in this series. The energy in the field was excellent. We gave away too many runs in the death overs. Accordingly, We didn’t get any partnership at all. We have played some decent cricket in this series. As We want to correct a few things going into the World Cup. I thought bowlers had a good day. I am not sure whether Nurse will be available for the final match”

Sam Billings is happy to contribute to the victory as England ashamed Windies and packed the t-20 series, “I gave myself a bit of time and really enjoyed it. I have a strong bottom hand and I try to use that. I have a 360-degree game and it came off today. We knew 165+ was a decent score. This is a great win. Cricket is a momentum game so we would like to carry that. Lots to play for the players as the World Cup is not far away.”

Eoin Morgan is extremely happy, “Extremely happy with the result. We adapted to the conditions really well. The partnership from Root and Billings was outstanding and from there we grabbed the momentum. I still think we have to keep learning. We were 32/4 in this match, we lost too many wickets in the power play so we have to improve in this department.”
