I went out there and played positive cricket - Kesrick Williams
West Indies fast bowler Kesrick Williams, who made his debut against Pakistan in the third Twenty20 International in Abu Dhabi, said that his goal was to play positive cricket in the match.
Going into the match, West Indies already lost the series and were on the verge of a 3-0 whitewash but Williams said that he did not let that situation bother him on his debut.
“I just went out there with my mind free, not thinking that we lost the series.
“I went out there and played positive cricket.
“I enjoyed playing CPL and that's what I did here tonight.
“Go out there and don’t look at it as I was playing against Pakistan, or against Sharjeel Khan or whatever.
“At the end of the day, it is the same cricket.
“I look at it like ‘okay, I'm playing cricket at home, don't try to overthink it and do what I do best, just bowl and execute (the plans)’.”
In the game, Williams was the only wicket-taker for West Indies having dismissed both the Pakistan openers in the sixth over.
The 26-year-old returned figures of two for 15 from four overs and was by far the best West Indies bowler on the day.
Notwithstanding the defeat in the T20I series, Williams feels that West Indies need to come out and give their best in the upcoming One-Day International series against Pakistan.
“Even though we lost the game, our guys are actually getting better.
“You can see some good performances coming up still.
“It's tough, it's really tough, it's really hot there and takes a while to get adapted to the conditions but we are tough cricketers and we always look to give our 110%.
“Cricket is a game of uncertainties, you can’t come out and say you are going to win today.
“Pakistan played good cricket, kudos to them.
“We just have to come out in the ODIs and do well.”
The three-match ODI series between Pakistan and West Indies will get underway with the first game on 30th September in Sharjah, which will also serve as the venue for the second match on 2nd October.
