Bishoo took four wickets to torpedo the chase. A smiling Bishoo now walks off with his team-mates.

Tayyab: "Ahmed Shahzad made 40 runs in five wrld cup matches, he is still in the side, for what? I do not understand."

Afridi: "It was a great opportunity for us ..we missed it. we have been missing partnerships. Bishoo bowled very well. .. this is a good wake-up call for us and we will do well in the ODIs."

Man of the match is Bishoo: "from regional cricket to international cricket, you have to vary a lot. I decided to vary my pace on this wicket. This is just the start. This is my father's wish: I playing for West Indies cricket. Thanks to all the people who are supporting me.

Sammy: "We wanted to start on a winning note and our preparations have been good and we came victorious. We know what Shahid can do in T20 and we didn't want him to take wickets. Bishoo did exactly what he said he would do in team meeting. He has taken his form from domestic T20. Over the years we have created opportunities to win but haven't capitalised. it's good to see we did it. This is a good start. one-day series looks like it would be interesting one."

That's it from us. Good bye and good luck.

Rampaul to Wahab Riaz, OUT

moves outside leg and has a slog. The ball lobs between Sammy at cover and Bishoo at backward point. Sammy thought Bishoo will take it but Bishoo left it for his captain. Sammy adjusted at the end and lunged to his left to take it. And he has a chat with Bishoo before patting him on the back in the end!
