Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : January 27th 2015 Contents last over," Russell told reporters.
"So I told who ever I was batting
with don t mind the dot balls, just don t
get panicked. Every over we were getting
a boundary so that was making up for
the dot balls or the ones we were get-
He continued: "Overall I thank God
for this victory because just before prac-
tice or just before a game, we pray and
ask God to help us to come out victo-
rious and it happened today, so I just
want to tell God thanks and well done
to the guys."
The victory broke a losing skid for
the Windies that began in Durban, and
continued with defeats in Johannesburg
and East London.
Russell said, however, the losses were
not for a lack of trying or commitment.
"We planned properly for the last
three games but we just didn t come
out on top. It s not like we weren t hav-
ing good discussions or we weren t
turning up to play," he stressed.
"We were turning up to play but it s
a round ball so it was just going South
Africa s way. They are playing good
cricket, you can t take that away from
them but well done to the guys." (CMC)

Vice-captain Marlon Samuels
stroked a top score of 68 and Dar-
ren Sammy, 51, and Russell was
quick to point to their contributions
as critical to the outcome.
"After the game I gave each of
them a big hug. The way they set
the game up, even the small innings
at the back end really counted
because (Carlos) Brathwaite and
Jason (Holder) ... they all applied
themselves," said Russell.
"The rotation [of strike] was
there and they got a few boundaries
and took the pressure off me. Even
(Sheldon) Cottrell giving me that
single first ball up [in the 48th
over], I thought that was very good.
The next two balls I got sixes and
that changed the game completely
so everyone played a big part."
South Africa posted 262 for eight
off their 50 overs after they were
sent in, with David Miller leading
with an unbeaten 130.
West Indies were then struggling
at 73 for five before Samuels and
Sammy put on 90 for the sixth
wicket to turn the innings around.
Captain Holder made 13 and
