Speaking after the match, Williamson said that they can't make excuses about the pitch conditions at the Brian Lara Stadium. He added that they need to find a way and need to bounce back.

The Kiwi skipper further added that they need to learn from their mistakes and need to pick themselves up for their next match.

"Conditions here are what they are and we can't make excuses. We need to keep getting better and keep finding a way, 10-15 runs that can make a big difference. We need to bounce back quickly, we are back in two days, we need to be smarter. The learnings are important and we need to pick ourselves up and go again," Williamson said.
