Victorious Netherlands skipper, Pieter Seelaar, says that he is very proud of his team. Adds that there were some questions raised about their chances but is happy to have won it outright, having shared the trophy with Ireland and Scotland in the earlier editions. Praises the experience of Cooper, Ackermann and ten Doeschate for seeing their team through. Is eager to go to Australia and believes that his team is well placed to do well over there. On Brandon Glover, Pieter says that the former impressed them in a club game back in Holland and to win the Man Of The Final award is impressive. Is looking forward to celebrate the win tonight and thanks the crowd for coming in large numbers to support. On PNG, Seelaar praises them, crediting them for stifling the batsmen, not giving easy runs away and showing the world that they belong.

Papua New Guinea captain, Assad Vala, accepts that it was not their day but believes that the team has done the country proved. Praises Ackermann and Cooper for showing them how to bat on this surface and hopes that his team can learn from them. Praises Damien Ravu for coming back strongly after being dropped midway in the tournament. On the learnings and the shortcomings, Vala is happy where the team is but wants his batsmen to work harder and get bigger scores.


NETHERLANDS' BRANDON GLOVER HAS BEEN NAMED THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH. Says that this win is incredible after seeing so many months of hard work. On his performance tonight, Glover says that one has to do his job and it was more about rhythm, coming in, running in and hitting the right areas consistently. Says that he is very much looking forward to playing in Australia.

Time for the final presentation of the tournament. The match referee and the umpires get their medallions.

Ryan ten Doeschate says that it was very tough in the middle. Says that he could have got out a couple of times, so 150 would have been very difficult. Says that they believed they could win the game, if they batted 20 overs, although, rues that final over which went for 22. Praises Papua New Guinea for not giving Netherlands any thing and says that it is always nice to beat that quirky team. On the tournament win, Ryan says that qualifying for the World Cup was a big thing but a win here is an icing on the cake. On the preparations for that tournament, Tendo says that he is not sure how Netherlands would go about things as a couple of young batters are coming up the ranks. Then says that there is still a year to go, so there is time to think about it.

Netherlands coach, Ryan Campbell, says that he is relieved with the win. Admits that there were plenty of issues internally but the group stuck together. Puts it down to the entire unit, with the seniors and the juniors gelling well. On the run chase, Campbell says that Netherlands' strength is to score 160 - Not 200, but 160 and for that, wickets in hand are needed and that is how the Dutch played. On the team selection, Ryan says that when he selected 5 fast bowlers for the Middle East, everyone questioned his selection but they did well. Now, he says, he might need 6 fast bowlers for Australia.

Time for a couple of quick chats.

As usual, Papua New Guinea bowled well. Ravu and Vala kept the pressure in the middle overs but towards the end, the others could not handle the pressure. One of the most consistent teams in this tournament, they have displayed their quality nicely.
