“Coming here without some players, with the protocols and so on — very thankful to God for the opportunity to captain West Indies,” said the winning captain Brathwaite.

“Boys stuck to their plans, they were very disciplined.

“Cricket means everything to us. People will be proud. People wrote us off but we kept it simple, enjoyed it, and we proved them wrong,” he added.
