10.40am Kraigg Brathwaite - Remember the name! Carried his bat through in the first innings, fielded for most parts of both Pakistan innings. Then came back to notch up a half-century and guide a tricky chase. It wasn't as tense as anticipated, but a fantastic contest nevertheless. First Test win for Holder as captain. Proud, proud moment for them. So, West Indies have something to show for what has been an otherwise long and hard tour. This is West Indies' first away win against a side ranked above them since 2007.

Jason Holder: We showed character and fight. Credit must go to Kraigg Brathwaite. He played an outstanding innings in the first innings and took responsibility in the second innings. Lost the toss, but Shannon Gabriel was outstanding for us with the new ball. That helped us take the momentum. It feels good to contribute to the team win. This has been a long time coming, I've had tough Test matches over the last year or so. We're a young side in transition. We've done a lot of things good this series. We just need to keep supporting one another. Yes, we'll have one or two people coming in and going out, but the longer we stay together as a group, the better it is for West Indies cricket.

Misbah-ul-Haq collects the winners trophy, but is clearly unhappy with the loss, as he should be. "It's always disappointing to lose a Test. Yes, the series is important but it's not good to lose. You don't want to lose momentum. We made a lot of mistakes," he says. "Credit to West Indies. They kept improving and we kept losing momentum. We were well below our standards, especially in the batting department. There was no discipline, there was bad shot selection. Clearly, if our main weapon is not getting any sort of turn on the last day, that was also disappointing for us. With this team, I'm sure we have the ability to come back strong. Everyone's hurt from this defeat. Conditions in New Zealand and Australia will be difficult, but this team loves challenges, and I'm hopeful we'll do well. In Tests, you at least need to score 350 when the pitch is really good. This was a batting paradise and we just collapsed in both innings. Their batting discipline was really good. Sorry to all the fans who believed in us and came out to support us.

Kraigg Brathwaite is the Man of the Match. "I've been playing with Shane since secondary school. The plan was to just keep rotating strike and bring the target down. I think we have a good group of young guys. When we go back to first-class cricket, we've to repeat what we've done there to be ready for our next Test series in the Caribbean. It was a tough Test for us as well, Pakistan also played well. We had to work really hard, very happy to come out on top. I know my weak and strong areas, I just worked around my strengths and backed my ability. On a low pitch, I thought front foot will give you more runs than on the back foot. This has been the best batting Test match so far of my career. I hope to repeat this feat many times in my career. I've had a good start. The key is to maintain it. I don't want to get comfortable. I just want to continue working hard and score a lot of runs.

Shannon Gabriel: No one gave us a chance after the ODIs and T20Is, but the guys stuck together. It was a confidence booster to perform here. The team management backed my ability. It was tough bowling here. There wasn't much assistance for the fast bowlers. I don't think my no-ball issue is a major concern. Probably I overstep in trying to bowl fast at times. Physically I'm tired, but I still have a few games to go. Hopefully I'll be ready for our next international assignment.

Yasir Shah is the Man of the series for picking up 21 wickets.

Shane Dowrich: This is a special feeling. The way we played this Test is the way we should play going forward. We were positive right from the start. I just told myself I'll be positive this morning since Kraigg is the anchorman. We knew if we would stay positive, we'd win here. Test cricket has been my dream growing up. I'd love to continue to perform for West Indies.

uppish and it's all over. What a win for West Indies. Sir Viv Richards spontaneously rises in applause in the stands. This was short and rising outside off, he slashed and got a thick edge that raced away into the third man boundary.

wow, he's struck that superbly. This was short, there was a man at deep square for the pull but he took him on and still managed to beat the fielder there. Probably the target being within touching distance may have encouraged him to take him on. Struck superbly

rip roaring bouncer that comes back in to rap him on the bat handle as he tries to take evasive action, the ball deflect to fine leg. 142 Clicks that delivery and the batsman had both feet in the air when the ball crashed into his handle

Wahab Riaz to Dowrich, FOUR runs

that is the shot of the day. Just a hint of width, but he was quick to lean into the drive and crash it on the up between cover and point. Fourth Test fifty

Uma!R: "No doubt WI played well in UAE better than England and even Australia, they handled spin well better than the other teams who were here before .. credit must be given to WI for giving a real tough time in all three tests and WI deserve the win." Mind goes back to the shot Darren Bravo played off Yasir in Abu Dhabi. If only he had stayed a bit longer

Vikas Kapdoskar: "Brathwaite take a bow. Looks like he will be carrying his bat through the test. Hope it inspires west indian cricket for good."
