Gayle said: "I’m very disappointed with the batters. We had the opportunity to go out there and put some runs on the board but instead we played terrible cricket."
"The batting conditions weren’t difficult. There were no demons in the wicket. It was a good batting wicket."
"Early on it was a bit two-paced and there was a bit of uneven bounce but when you get in on a wicket like that then you’ll get runs. We didn’t capitalise on that."
"Most of the guys here have been in the Test series and have seen Vettori over and over," he said. "I’m sure they can make some adjustment.
"He has been playing for years. We’ve seen him in the Test matches and in the last couple of one-dayers so there’s no excuse for batters saying Vettori is giving them problems. It’s time to come up with some formula and game plan."
Vettori felt the otherway – "It’s big of him to say that it wasn’t the wicket, and it probably wasn’t," he said. "But I still think that there was enough in there to help the bowlers and that was the reason why we won the game."
"I’m pretty pleased with the performance. Most aspects of the game we were on top and we did everything that I asked the team," Vettori said.
"Starting from Kyle Mills, who I thought was outstanding again and has been great throughout the series, the way he bowled probably set the game up."
"Every part of the fielding was done exceptionally well. There was a little bit of a scare with those wickets being lost early (in our innings) but Ross Taylor played one of the best innings I’ve seen him play for New Zealand."
"He played all around the park and looked calm and collected and saw us through to the end."
