That's all we have for you. Hope you enjoyed the cricket. Cheers


Mohammad Hafeez is MoM "I am happy, but it is big disappointing. We should have won, but West Indies played really well. My batting coach, Shahid Aslam, has worked hard on may game."

Darren Samy "It's been a while, yes. But we created an opportunity, and good to see we took it. The way Ravi started, although he didn't get any wickets, he bowled really well. We needed this win. It's been a while. We will take positives. The way Simmons played, Sars in the middle, and the six Bravo hit under pressure. Bishoo with the ball too. Simmons has been consistent, but I think he will want to carry on with this fifties."

Shahid Afridi "The way Mohammad Hafeez played on a difficult pitch, and Asad Shafiq, I think we should have got 270-275. We missed that chance, didn't bat that well in the end. The new guys didn't get a proper chance, didn't get long enough to bat. Pretty happy with the bowlers."

5.46pm West Indies have won! The game has been called off, and West Indies have won by one run on D/L. They have finally beaten a Test side other than Bangladesh in an ODI - the last time they did so was in June 2009. It came through a superb knock from Lendl Simmons, but they all threatened to throw it all away, and with rain around, they needed a six in what turned out to be the final over to get ahead of the D/L par score. What a timely six it was from Bravo. Do hang around for quotes from the presentation

5.45pm Update from WICB Twitter: "3 UMPIRES in middle with umbrellas summon the head groundsman. Short discussion and all return to respective posts. Wait & See"

And rain has arrived, with West Indies are ahead of D/L par score, and it's 5.22pm in Barbados, so light will become an issue too. What a timely six from Bravo. Spare a thought for Afridi too. He bowled just one bad ball in the over. And was hit for a six. That could decide the match now. Drama, but no actual cricket happening

Rakesh writes in, "As a long standing WI fan, i don't want to see the WI win this way, But at this point in time, i will take anything and wish the rain does NOT stop.

Just don't trust the WI to win anything off their bat's now, no matter how easy it is."

and now they are well ahead of D/L. Long hop, and Bravo pulls it over midwicket. What a well-timed six. Could be the match-winning six. Sammy and Gibson applaud, and then signal a forward defensive. 'keep the wicket for the rest of the over.'

Sammy and Gibson gesture from the gallery. West Indies behind on D/L

We are into the last 10. Rain is hovering around. Interesting, interesting situation. West Indies have the advantage of knowing what exactly they need to do. Afridi brings himself on
