    Jason Holder (West Indies Captain): It's good to get over the line. We've had some close encounters in this World Cup. So it's really good to finish with a win. Obviously batters stepped up today. Evin and Shai got a good partnership going. At the back end, myself and Pooran were able to finish well. 300 was a par score I felt on that pitch. They had a good partnership but we stayed strong and came through in the end. (On what went wrong for WI in the WC) I think inconsistency let us down. Our fielding has a lot to improve. The bowlers did really well, credit to each of them. Batting was inconsistent and that also needs to step up. It's hard to say that Chris is playing his last World Cup. He's been an excellent ambassador for West Indies cricket. Would also like to congratulate Ian Gould, the umpire who is officiating his last game on Saturday.

    Gulbadin Naib (Afghanistan Captain): Definitely a good score (on the chasing effort). At one point, we looked comfortable at the wicket. Khil and Rahmat played really well. In the end, chasing 300-plus isn't that easy. So I am really happy with the fight. Khil is an U19 boy, he showed his class today. Not just him, we have a lot of young talent back home as well. If we can groom them well, it will be nice for us. I learnt a lot in this tournament. (On what Afghanistan needs to work on) Fitness is an issue for us, boys are struggling and it's something we need to work on. Also need to handle the pressure moments more. We need to keep working on bettering our skills. I think the World Cup has been a good learning curve for all of us.

    Shai Hope (Man of the Match): It's important we got that score on the board. It's not where we would've liked it to be but it's a learning experience and lot to learn from this. It's nice to finish on a high and hopefully I can carry on this form for the next series as well.
