Trinidad and Tobago skipper Darren Ganga even after making the final without losing a single match has stated that they are far from being content. The Caribbean side trounced Cape Cobras by seven wickets in the second final to set up the final against NSW Blues of Australia.

 

"I am quite happy to be in the final. But we are not content with just this (semifinal) win. Tonight is going to be pretty chill though. We have set ourselves goals. We have five wins and it's final tomorrow and we get that sixth win they (teammates) can celebrate," Ganga said after the match.

 

"We had confidence that we have guys to win it. There was Kieron Pollard, Navin Stewart and Denesh Ramdin to come so that gave the freedom to bat freely," he said.

 

Despite having beaten NSW Blues earlier in the League stage, Ganga was not ready to take their opponents light in the final.

 

"I know one thing for sure that NSW won't be happy at all with our victory in the League round. We are bracing ourself for a backlash. We know it's a final. We know they are a quality team. They have quality players. We are not going to underestimate them at all."

 

"What ever happened in the league round. It's history. Tomorrow is about re-grouping. Hopefully we can bring lot of smiles to lot of faces," Ganga said.

 

Ganga was also keen that his bowlers perform better in the power-play.

 

"We are never satisfied with the manner in which we played. Last game we played was a near perfect game but still we have areas of concerns like we need to bowl better in the first six overs," he said.
