...
So Windies looking very strong. The competition is now alive and kicking. See you tomorrow. Goodnight !
...
Sammy: "It was good to see the way we bowled. And then the way Fletcher batted was brilliant. I'm happy as a captain. This World Cup is very special. We had a few difficulties before the tournament, but we are here to win it. Chris is like a local, hopefully for the rest of the tournament, they come out and support us in the same way."
...
Mathews: "We were 20-30 runs short and we did not take our chances. We kept losing wicket and wicket. An ICC tournament is always special."
...
Fletcher: "It was a bit easy to bat earlier and it got a little tough when the ball became old. So I tried my best to bat through. Chris is my mentor in T20s. Before I went to bat, he told me that I would have a big day today. We are all as one, unity and strength. We don't want to get complacent and will play each game as a final"
...
And his replacement Andre Fletcher is the man of the match.
...
The Windies are happy and they should be, but spare a thought for the crowd who thronged in to watch gayle, but unfortunately an injury to his hamstring prevented him from batting.

Very poor day for the defending champions. Poor score, poor bowling and then poor catching. Only Vandersay and Chameera were impressive it has to be said.
...
