“Fabian did well with the ball in the first game, and then he showed what he can do with the bat in the second. As a cricketer, I think he’s a fantastic cricketer all round. He has the ability to go far places, and hence the reason why we want and we have him around the setup because we know what he can offer. And it was fantastic to see him, even though it was sort of far-fetched at the end, he going out and showing that you know what despite the situation, despite whatever, there’s always hope,” said Kieron Pollard in a press interaction ahead of the third T20I.
So long may performance continue and I just hope that he continues to make use of all the opportunities you know that he gets. And it would only augur well, you know, for him in the future and for West Indies cricket as well. So, you know, all youngsters and everybody you know long may continue, but I think he’s a special talent,” further added Kieron Pollard.
