No one had any thought of what number of we would have liked after 5 – 6 overs. I don’t believe the sport will have to have began till it used to be finalised, earlier than there used to be a transparent indication of what’s required, and what we would have liked at positive levels. I do not slightly assume it [the conduct of the match] used to be just right sufficient this night,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Domingo as announcing.

“[When we met the match referee] they have been nonetheless looking ahead to the printouts and calculations to happen. I believe in case you are ready, the sport cannot get started earlier than you get it. What used to be defined now used to be that they typically get it one or two balls into the innings, however hadn’t won it but. They have been looking ahead to it. There have been delays and all forms of stuff. No excuses [for the defeat], however that is simply very irritating for us. They could not prolong the sport for much longer, as a result of they have been operating out of overs,” he added.
