After winning the toss, the Caribbeans decided to field first. Following this, Philip Salt and Will Jacks opened for the English side but failed to make an eye-catching inning.
After the disappointing four-wicket loss of Team England against the West Indies in the third match of the series at Kensington in Bridgetown on Sunday, skipper Jos Buttler said they were up to the mark with the bat. Speaking at the post-match presentation, Buttler praised Duckett and Livingstone’s partnership in the first inning, which helped them give a good score. He added that they made a few mistakes while batting. He also added that the English side is looking forward to the T20I series against the Caribbeans now.
Buttler said, “We were a few short with the bat. Good partnership between Duckett and Livingstone to get us to a good score. The breaks in concentration didn’t help. We made some mistakes with the bat. The ball got wet. It was a good effort from the guys. Jacks, with his spell, got us back into the game. The start of a long journey for this bunch of guys. I look forward to a change of format against a very good side.”
