Charles: "We have finishers like Hussey and Miller at the end, but I had planned to bat through the innings. (On the favourites tag) We have a strong side this time and would like to take it all the way, but we need to go match by match."

...
Johnson Charles is the Man of the Match
...
Darren Sammy: "It is difficult to come here and beat the defending champions, but the bowlers did a great job. I thought 160 was a par score, Charles and all chipped in. We knew the conditions will be tough, and Darren Bravo was set. But at the half way stage, we knew the target was not much. Charles is a seasoned campaigner, and I can see Fletcher and Watson winning us games at the top as well".
...
Dwayne Bravo: "We thought we had a chance to defend the target. Charles batted well in the company of Fletcher, and then Miller and Hussey. At this time, it is a rainy season, so most of the games will have dew. It is the first game, we just need to get better with our skills".
...
Chasing 163, the duo of Watson and Charles started off confidently. Charles hung on from one end, getting the required rate under check and was assisted well by Fletcher from the other end. Michael Hussey chipped in with a useful cameo, but it was up to Miller, who was struggling in recent months, to steer the chase towards the end, and in the company of Sammy, take the Zouks home.
