Post your comment about Paul Collingwood

 On a personal note, it was nice to get some runs. It's been quite a frustrating few months for me, not being able to contribute as much as I would have liked. Even though it was a warm-up game, I thought it was important I spent some time in the middle and tried to get that confidence going again -- and thankfully, it worked out well.

 I’m trying to take the emotion out of that defeat. But I think 95% of the time when you get 191 for five on the board you are going to win the game. Unfortunately, Duckworth-Lewis seems to have other ideas – bringing the equation completely the other way. It’s the second time it’s happened to us now against West Indies, so it is very frustrating – because tonight we’ve played a near perfect game but we’ve lost. We’ve just got to bounce back tomorrow against Ireland.

 There’s a major problem with this Duckworth-Lewis in this form of the game. I’ve got no problems with it in the 50-over form. But I know it’s made us very frustrated tonight. It certainly has to be revised for this form of the game.

 We’ve still got a chance in the tournament. What we did today was exceptional – what we spoke about in the dressing room, what we picked guys for ... they did it exactly.

 Congratulations to Holland. We did not have enough runs there. They played exceptional game. It is a major performance. We looked at 170-180, unfortunately they batted well. They were better than us today

 We had a lot chances and run outs but we did not do it. That's fine line between win and lose. There was bit of rain around but I don't want to put any excuse. We have a major game against Pakistan...We want to go and play well

 If it was a 20-over game we might have had a better chance of it.

 Playing in the IPL, your profile shoots up. To me it is a bonus and I hope players coming into the game will think the same way.
