Leon Johnson informed : “The team is in very high spirits…winning our first three games, we had a day off on Tuesday and practice today (Wednesday), spirits are high due to wins we have posted coming off a disappointing 2019 Super50 and it’s good to have already qualified for the semi-finals, but it’s about not being complacent and taking one game at a time” External link

Leon Johnson said : “The pitches here are good for batting, the dimensions of the Coolage Ground are a bit small but the pitch is good. In previous years, the teams bowling first at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium had a slight advantage because for some reason the pitches had some extra moisture for a nine-o-clock start. We have not played any games there but those who played have there have said that the pitch there is also good to bat on. The fast outfield at Sir Viv ground has contributed to the high volume of runs scored there,” External link

Leon Johnson explained : “I didn’t do too many things different from normal, I just give myself the chance to get into less risks earlier on….I hit a six early on but the ball was there to be hit. We had to score just about five runs per over when I got to the crease and it went up to six which was very manageable once you got the wickets in hand. I just tried to form partnerships with whoever I was batting with at the time and things went my way and I capitalised on that” External link

Leon Johnson said : “I think the way we came back after the Hurricanes were 152 without loss … but they were still scoring under five, so we knew once we get a wicket or two we will be able to peg them back a little, so the way Motie (Gudakesh) bowled was exceptional, and the way the fast bowlers bowl in the end as well,” External link

Leon Johnson added : “But we are back out and did a fitness assessment on the 14th… it was decent…most of the guys were at a good standard. Most of the guys had not played cricket for the better part of 10 months and it showed in our two practice matches. The batters were a bit rusty but we showed some improvement in the second game. Hopefully we will see more improvement but when we get to Antigua conditions will be different and I hope we can get some practice there and be ready for the tournament,” External link

Leon Johnson disclosed : “I was thinking back and a lot of the times we would have lost in finals or semi-finals… the batting has always let us down in those games, while the bowling held its own. The last time we won in 2005 Ramnaresh Sarwan good some good scores and was dominant, while (Sewnarine) Chattergoon got a century in the final and the others batted around him and that’s what has been letting us down in crucial games and for the better part of the last decade. We addressed this and although we didn’t do so well with the bat in the practice games, but hopefully when get to Antigua we hope that in five, six, seven matches and the batting will click and support the bowling which has done well so far,” External link

Leon Johnson said : “Batting wise I felt we didn’t score as many as we should have taking into consideration they were a bowler down from the fourth over of our innings. Vishaul (Singh) and Hemmy (Hemraj) played very well and should have really gone on to register centuries as well” External link

kaieteurnewsonline Wednesday, January 22, 2020 7:31:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson added : “I have played on quicker pitches with more bounce in Barbados. This pitch was inconsistent and played two-paced….don’t know how much preparation went in to it. A few balls were keeping low and some reared up. But that’s cricket and we can’t complain too much about the surface,” External link

guyanachronicle Wednesday, January 1, 2020 4:26:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson said : “In earlier games, we did well in the later part of the innings, but the lack of intent and urgency in the first 20 overs left too much to do at the back end,” External link

guyanachronicle Friday, January 4, 2019 4:54:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson said : “I can’t say how badly they would be missed but while we know they are obviously talented and would bring quality to the table, it gives an opportunity to the guys who have been selected, to play well and make it hard for the selectors when senior players become available,” External link

guyanachronicle Thursday, December 6, 2018 8:23:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson said : “Come Thursday, we can’t take it for granted that we could just turn up and win games. We have to go through a process and we have to be patient as we usually are, and play consistent cricket which has been our strength,” External link

guyanachronicle Thursday, December 6, 2018 8:23:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson said : “I think the two practice matches went well but I won’t say I was totally satisfied, since a couple of the batters selected did not get enough time in the middle because the matches were affected by rain,” External link

guyanachronicle Thursday, December 6, 2018 8:23:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson said : “I am very happy with the improvement shown in both departments, the bowlers maintained good lines and lengths throughout and built lots of pressure on the CCC batsmen, resulting on them giving their wickets away,” External link

kaieteurnewsonline Monday, January 30, 2017 12:53:00 PM EAT

Leon Johnson said : “My major concern has been the opening partnerships so far. We have been one down inside four overs in all three games and it’s a bit worrying but I am confident it’s an area we will also improve in,” External link

kaieteurnewsonline Monday, January 30, 2017 12:53:00 PM EAT

Leon Johnson concluded : “We are still very confident of qualifying for the ‘final-four’ we need to win four or all five of our remaining matches. This win has done our confidence well and we will be looking to replicate that kind of performance in the remaining matches,” External link

kaieteurnewsonline Monday, January 30, 2017 12:53:00 PM EAT

Leon Johnson told : “It is a bit of both. Opening batting is very new to me and playing against international bowlers and the quality of bowlers of Pakistan and India, playing in that position will be difficult if you are not accustomed to it,” External link

ibtimes-in Saturday, July 9, 2016 10:45:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson added ( about Squads India ) : "If we are able to bowl well, I think we would have achieved something," "We have a decent bowling lineup and India, obviously have a high-quality batting lineup, so if we manage to bowl well, I think we would have achieved something on this surface here at St. Kitts" External link

ibtimes-in Saturday, July 9, 2016 10:45:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson said : “Definitely I am happy that we won the game but credit must go to both Permaul and Bishoo, I think they were the trump cards for us. The nature of the wicket would have always allowed them to bowl well. Once the ball gets older, scoring was a huge challenge and both Permaul and Bishoo took full advantage of that,” External link

caribseek Monday, March 23, 2015 1:13:00 PM EAT

Leon Johnson told : “We’ve talked about it after the game and we’ve discussed about not getting complacent. We’ve beaten Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago convincingly in the earlier rounds and we still need to go and play good cricket to win this tournament; so obviously, we have no place for complacency” External link

guyanachronicle Wednesday, February 25, 2015 4:44:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson said : “It’s very important not as a cricket team, but as a country because everyone is behind us. The guys fell short in the 50-over. I mean I wasn’t there but we didn’t turn up on the day and we lost but now we have a chance to correct that. We haven’t done it (win the tournament) in 17 years and now we have a chance to do it, so we must stay focused and win this for the people of Guyana,” External link

Leon Johnson said : “Batting wise I felt we didn’t score as many as we should have taking into consideration they were a bowler down from the fourth over of our innings. Vishaul (Singh) and Hemmy (Hemraj) played very well and should have really gone on to register centuries as well” External link

Leon Johnson explained : “It had a bit in it for the bowlers in the first session on day one and was good for batting on day two. On day three there was a lot of rain around and the moisture seemed to change the conditions in favour of the spinners” External link

Leon Johnson said : “I don’t think we batted well in our first innings in the game….don’t think we batted enough overs or scored enough runs in our first innings. I don’t think we really achieved any of our batting targets and that let us down a bit,” External link

Leon Johnson added : “I have played on quicker pitches with more bounce in Barbados. This pitch was inconsistent and played two-paced….don’t know how much preparation went in to it. A few balls were keeping low and some reared up. But that’s cricket and we can’t complain too much about the surface,” External link

Leon Johnson added ( about Squads India ) : "If we are able to bowl well, I think we would have achieved something," "We have a decent bowling lineup and India, obviously have a high-quality batting lineup, so if we manage to bowl well, I think we would have achieved something on this surface here at St. Kitts" External link

ibtimes-in Saturday, July 9, 2016 10:45:00 AM EAT

Leon Johnson said : “Definitely I am happy that we won the game but credit must go to both Permaul and Bishoo, I think they were the trump cards for us. The nature of the wicket would have always allowed them to bowl well. Once the ball gets older, scoring was a huge challenge and both Permaul and Bishoo took full advantage of that,” External link

Leon Johnson told : “We’ve talked about it after the game and we’ve discussed about not getting complacent.

We haven’t done it (win the tournament) in 17 years and now we have a chance to do it, so we must stay focused and win this for the people of Guyana,” External link
