Meanwhile, man of the match, Alzarri Joseph spoke at the post-match presentation and said, “It is a dream. I could not have asked for a better start. I just backed my plans and it worked. My plan was to keep it simple and back myself. I know we had a game to win and I was focused on that (on why he didn’t celebrate Warner’s wicket). The boys are playing well and putting in a lot of hard work. The coaches are also helping us with their inputs.”
