Players from both sides shake hands. Misbah is warmly hugged by nearly every team-mate.

Rizzy: "Misbah- I Love You...haters will always hate, you just keep doing your job and make your country proud. Keep soldiering on!"

Haidar: "Yeah baby Misbah rocks"

Tayyab: "Well, Misbah has settled today's debate with his performance and silenced his critics. He certainly is one of the reliable batsmen in recent history of Pakistan. Well done Misbah!"

Please wait for the quotes from the post-match ceremony.

Sammy: " We as a batting unit, myself included, have to take more responsibility like Bishoo does with the ball. It's about getting the formula right; we have had good starts but we haven't capitalised it. Selectors will meet now.. The way forward is to gain experience. Thsi group is not short of talent, play and get more consistency. May be the team will stay the same but whatever happens, we have do well in the middle phase. Bishoo is very talented and he wants to be a great West Indies player. he has all that can make him one. Rampaul bowled really well today. "

Afridi: "The way boys delivered in the series was good. There are still some problems. I am sure from the management coaching side we batsmen will face some hard time! (he smiles). We batsmen should take some time. The coaches will come hard in the meetings. We all know we made mistakes. Home advantage is different and playing away from home is different. You need different fitness to play on these pitches (and outfields). We will now give chances to youngsters. In batting area and we have two mediumpacers as well."

Man of the match is Misbah "The wicket wasnt easy for us as there was bit more bounce and pace. I thought I have to bat till the end and we can win. The ball gets soft as it gets old and you can handle it easily. With the new ball, Rampaul and Roach bowled really well and kept us in pressure. I was telling Wahab to play normal game. When just 10 runs were required, I told him, you can now go for one or two big hits." That explains Wahab's belligerence.

That's it from us. Alvida!
