That is Trinidad and Tobago senior cricket coach David Williams' take on his team's thrilling four-wicket triumph over ICC T20 World Cup-bound Bangladesh on Saturday night at the Queen's Park Oval, which left the home crowd in rapture.
Needing to reach the winning target of 125 by the tenth of the allotted 20 overs to win the quadrangular Asia versus the Caribbean Twenty20 series on net run rate, T&T crumbled to 12 for five, but managed to save face with a brave comeback, with three balls to spare.
All-rounders, Man-of-the-Match Yannick Ottley (52 not out) and Sherwin Ganga (40 not out), led them there from 51 for six, after both players had shone with the ball.
It left Williams and the rest of the T&T staff grinning from ear to ear.
"These are young men with a lot of inexperienced players in there, and Ottley coming and playing that innings," a beaming Williams told the Express after the match. "That augurs well for the future of Trinidad and Tobago. So it's character building stuff for us, and we just hope that the guys will continue to learn from this and continue to grow from strength to strength."
Williams would not have been smiling after six overs, with T&T five wickets down, their series chase stalled, and the innings hanging by a thread.
"To come back from that and win this match against a tough team like Bangladesh, credit must go out to the guys (for) the way they played. The entire team, it was a total team effort and we're just happy the way the guys went out there and did their business."
The former West Indies wicketkeeper hailed Ganga for holding things together after the top order collapse. He also singled out Jason Mohammed for swinging the momentum of the match T&T's way his 24 off 27 balls, which mixed defence with attack.
Williams paid tribute to Afghanistan for winning the tournament on net run rate, aided by T&T's defeat of the previously unbeaten Bangladeshis.
The T&T comeback win, Williams further said, also highlighted the depth in his squad, which will be campaigning in this year's Champions League in South Africa without Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo and Sunil Narine.
T&T secured victory minus five other senior players, including regular captain/wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin—who along with Pollard and company are on West Indies duty—and having lost all-rounder Kevon Cooper and promising young batsman Evin Lewis on Friday and Saturday to injury. It is a good omen for Williams to see the team perform despite those setbacks.
He compared Saturday night's encounter to T&T's 2011 Champions League campaign, where they narrowly missed the semi-finals without the services of Pollard and Bravo.
"Sometimes you don't know what [inexperienced players] have until you throw them in the mix of things," he pointed out. "It just proved to us we have a lot of depth in our team...for the guys to come out and play a game like this and achieve what they have achieved, it's really tremendous."
The performance leaves the T&T selectors now with a headache that Williams admitted could reach "migraine" proportions.
"That's what we want. We want headaches. We don't mind headaches. Once we're getting headaches it means that somebody is doing well. It will be tough; only 15 people can go [to South Africa]. We had some very good performances all-round.
"But at the end of the day," Williams continued, "we have to pick the best team, and only the best team can go."
The selectors were scheduled to meet to pick the squad yesterday, although chairman of selectors Dudnath Ramkessoon said on Saturday, the team would first be sent to the Champions League organisers before being released.
