"We needed silverware in the Caribbean in 2012 and yes nobody gave us a chance back then. This one with all that happened before the tournament the disrespect from journalists and from our own cricket board that was out of order. The only way we could make statement is by winning this tournament," Sammy said at the post-match press conference.  
 
"When you see those 15 men out there play now, that's what we could talk about. It is solely dedicated to the people and fans all over the world," said Sammy. He spoke about how the U-19 team and the women's team inspired them to do well.   

"I would like to thank the Almighty as it would not have been possible without His blessings. It means a lot not only for us as team but for our fans all over the world. We started the tournament inspired by U-19 boys. Earlier this afternoon the women won the Cup. All those are motivation to complete a treble. This means a lot for the cricket in the region," he added.  
 
"We left the Caribbean with a six-step goal for the Cup. Carlos (Brathwaite) in his debut World T20 has shown what a player he is. Marlon again in a final speaks volumes. All the guys chipped in. For me, as a leader, it was joy to captain. For me, it was about handling the egos and get the right decision. People may say I didn't bat much but my job was to get the best out of the team," Sammy explained his role.  

Sammy agreed that West Indies get a lot of flak because of the dipping performance of the Test squad but felt that this win could act as an inspiration.
