What Captains Said At Toss

Aaron Jones: "It's going to be good. I'd get a lot of support tonight. It's going to be a good wicket. We are going to play our normal cricket, fearless and aggressive cricket. We'll look to get a good total. We'll try to be as positive as possible. Two changes. Milind Kumar and Shadley are in. Jessy is out and Shayan is out."

Rovman Powell: "We are going to bowl first. Looks a pretty good wicket, inclement weather as well. We'll look to bowl well and take instructions from there. Our destination in our hands. Today provides us an opportunity to get back to winning ways. We have been batting well as a team. We were lacking a bit of intensity in the middle overs in the previous game. Romario misses out, in comes McCoy. King has been ruled out and in comes Shai Hope."

WI Vs USA Live Blog: What POTM Roston Chase Said

Shai Hope ran away with the game in the chase, but Roston Chase set it up with his crucial three-wicket haul, and the off-spinner is the Player Of The Match for his strong bowling display. Here's what he said after West Indies' win:

"[On his career-best figures] To do it at home is a great feeling, with my parents and my friends watching. It's something we talked about in the team meeting that if we don't get too many wickets in the powerplay, it's on the spinners to come back and pull the game back and that's what we did today. [On his catch to dismiss Steven Taylor] I love fielding at point, it gets me going. This is my favourite place to play cricket. I'm from Barbados so I grew up playing cricket here. [On the SA match] It's our destiny and our goal to win the World Cup so anyone we play we have to beat from here to go win it."

What Losing Captain Aaron Jones Said

Aaron Jones: "Tough night for the boys. We had to score about 170-180 today. In the middle overs, we lost wickets in clusters, it goes like that sometimes. At the end of the day, we needed runs on the board. We tried to go hard with the ball but we know West Indies are a good batting unit. England will be a good game, we are up for a challenge. Need to rest up and get ready for Sunday. Thanks to the fans and their support, for supporting me personally and also the team."

What Winning Captain Rovman Powell Said

Rovman Powell: "It's very special. Kensington brings very special memories for us. [On the bowling performance] I think [Roston Chase] plays a critical role for us. He comes and tightens things. Credit has to be given to the boys, we set out to achieve our goals and we did. [On Shai Hope] He's been fantastic. He got an opportunity and was dropped due to combination but came back and performed. Shows the strength of the team."

That Will Be All

With that, we conclude our coverage of the WI vs USA game. We'll be back with live updates from the India vs Bangladesh encounter in the evening. Until then, goodbye.
