KELVIN Williams, coach of the national cricket team, has blamed poor shot selection for the demise of Trinidad and Tobago in the Super50 final on Saturday…

“Poor conditions and the shot selection was quite poor as well hence the reason for the 118. We could have curbed (our attacking) a bit more but some batsmen tried to go over the top,” he said…

“It would have taken a humongous effort from the bowlers and backed up by the fielders. At one time when they were four wickets down, there was a glimmer of hope but two partnerships developed and that broke our backs,” he explained.

Despite going home empty-handed, Williams does not believe their campaign was an utter failure.

“We failed to achieve what we went there for but it was not a total failure. We did excellent in getting in the final. The way we fought back from situations under pressure was good. We have to make sure next time around we are better equipped to take up the challenge,” he continued…

The ex-national player commended “Man-of-the-Series” Jason Mohammed for his impressive form with the bat throughout the tournament…

“He is confident and he keeps it simple. He just pushes the ball into the gaps and punishes the bad ones. He’s showed more maturity than I’ve ever seen him do before,” he pointed out.
