Tino Mawoyo: "It's the same pitch. We won't get as many runs today as we had during the second T20I. It's a tired pitch. It will be slower and will turn due to the dryness."
Tamim Iqbal: "If we can beat West Indies today, it will be a great achievement. We played extremely good cricket across all formats. 2015 was the year when I started to think about Fitness. I learnt that fitness will help you score more runs. I didn't play for three months and I was a bit nervous when I came to play the ODIs. Today is a new game and I hope I can contribute."
