Commentary

That is all we have from this match. The teams now head to Bridgetown in Barbados for the second Test where Pakistan will aim to wrap up the series. West Indies have lots to ponder about after another final-day collapse. Can they turn it around and level the series? We will find out in five days' time. Join us then. Until then, it's goodbye from all of us here, thank you for joining us.

"It was tricky. When you're chasing such a small target, you tend to relax, but that can happen in cricket", says Misbah-ul-Haq, the Pakistan captain. "We won the game in the end, so pretty satisfied with that and good to see the team doing well. Tricky weather, first day, winning the toss and bowling, there was only one chance to get them out quickly with the weather. The bowlers did well, especially Amir in the first innings and Amir and Yasir. Yasir, especially in the second innings, getting six in a still battable pitch. It depends on the conditions and how the pitch is, especially before the start of the Test. This pitch had a lot of moisture which is why we had to bowl three seamers. We can have three fast bowlers and two spinners, but it is difficult. Let's see what kind of pitch we get in the net two matches. I have always said if you are not enjoying, you need to go. I am not the kind of person who lingers on. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the boys."

"I just try to stick to my lines and lengths," says Yasir Shah, Man of the Match. "I prepared well and did good drills. I worked on my bowling, so I did not have pressure, but I tried to concentrate on performing. This ball slips a bit, but the focus is on trying to bowl in one area. I played in the England series and did well. The Australia series did not have much for the spinners. I just pray that I perform well in this series."

"Not enough run in the first innings," says West Indies captain Jason Holder. "We lost wickets earlier and could never consolidate with any partnership in the middle. We needed to get in excess of 300 runs, but didn't. Lost early wickets again in the second innings. Yasir Shah did bowl well, but we could have batted a lot better. It's a tough phase, but it is what it is. I have full confidence in this young group. We just got to stick together and learn. We definitely need to get off to a better start. Kraigg Brathwaite couldn't get going in this Test match. The last time we beat Pakistan, he carried his bat through both innings. Every single bowler who bowled in this pitch, it was a tough pitch, deserves credit. We lost a few opportunities in the field."

Presentation time.

Pakistan, emboldened by pushing West Indies to a tight corner last evening, spent a session closing in. They picked up six wickets for 59 to leave their batsmen a target of 32. They lost three, but would be mighty pleased with the effort nevertheless. A wicket or two too many, you may argue, but they'd gladly take the win. Ahmed Shehzad has had a poor game and is having a chat with coach Arthur. Such has been the nature of victory that it perhaps gives him enough space to work things out ahead of Barbados. Star of the day for Pakistan? Yasir Shah, undoubtedly. His ninth five-for set up West Indies' collapse.

Bishoo to Misbah-ul-Haq, SIX runs, swung across to the leg side to complete the formalities! No time wasted. Consecutive sixes to finish this off. Tossed up again, Misbah down on one knee as he fetches the slog sweep from outside off. Handshakes all around. Pakistan up 1-0 in the three-match series

Bishoo to Misbah-ul-Haq, SIX runs, sees the flight, brings out the big broad shoulders, gets to the pitch of the ball and muscles it back over the bowler's head. Glorious

Bishoo to Younis Khan, OUT, drifts this full ball on middle from wide of the crease, Younis looks to nurdle this to the leg side but the bat comes down at an angle as he prods outside the line. He's hit almost full on the pad. Would've most definitely gone on to hit the stumps. Looked like he got into a tangle while trying to defend. The bottom of the bat may have just got stuck into the pitch as he tried to turn that away. Hawkeye confirms it pitched on leg and would've hit leg.

Younis has been given out, but he's reviewed the decision. Wonder if Bishoo has overstepped here.
