After the match, Pollard said, ‘We were far behind in such important matches. We didn’t play well. There was a batting pitch but 189 runs turned out to be a bit much. They (Sri Lanka) threw us out of the match. He played cleverly on this pitch, hitting 17 fours and 3 sixes. He rotated the strike a lot and scored 2-2 runs a lot. That was the crucial moment because he didn’t give us any chance. We wanted to restrict him to 120 or 140, but he batted really well.

Pollard said, ‘We needed to be smart with our batting, like Hetmyer did. We knew what he could do. We need to show a better game. Nicholas Pooran batted well. “We need to get better at batting, we have the talent, but we didn’t do well. We have to accept it, our experienced players have not done well, including me.

He further said, ‘We need to move forward, some youth have extended their hands, this is good news for the future. It’s no secret, such things happen, but cricket has to keep going. We can be better, the players in the dressing room are disappointed, especially the batsmen. Now everything is done and this is something we need to learn.
