Darren Sammy (West Indies):
On winning the toss and opting to bowl first: “The wicket looks like it has some moisture in it so we are going to exploit that. [We’ll look to] restrict them to a low total”
On the last game of the series: “Looking to finish the series on a high. We know what it is to win; we did some things right in the last game and are looking to continue it.”
On batting first: “We have a good team. Hopefully we will put up a good total today. Wicket looks really good.”
On the two new players in the side: “Vinay has been doing well. He has been playing for Karnataka and has done well in first-class cricket. Played couple of games in Zimbabwe and has done well there. Shikhar Dhawan has been batting really well.”
