Stats - West Indies maintain perfect record in sub-200 chases
Stats highlights from West Indies' thrilling one-wicket win against Pakistan in Jamaica
15 One-wicket wins in Test history. This is the second such instance in West Indies-Pakistan Tests, following West Indies' one-wicket win in Antigua in 2000. West Indies have featured in five of these 15 instances, defeating Australia in 1999, but losing to Australia in 1951, and to New Zealand in 1980. Pakistan have a 2-2 record in these matches, with wins against Australia and Bangladesh, apart from the two losses against West Indies. England have four one-wicket wins, the most by any team, while Australia have the most losses (6).
12 Wins for the home team, out of the 15 matches that went down to the last pair standing. The three instances of overseas wins were by England against Australia in 1908, by England against South Africa in 1923, and more recently, by Sri Lanka against South Africa in 2019, when Kusal Perera made that stunning unbeaten 153.
7 Instances of the last wicket adding more than the 17 that Jayden Seales and Kemar Roach put together in this thriller. The two highest partnerships in last-wicket wins both happened in 2019, when Perera and Vishwa Fernando added 78, and Ben Stokes and Jack Leach added 76 against Australia at Headingley. The only other 50-plus final-wicket stand in a win was by Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mushtaq Ahmed, who added 57 against Australia in Karachi in 1994.
0 Instances of West Indies losing a Test when chasing of target of 200 or less. In 62 such chases, they have won 56 and drawn six. Of those 56 wins, 20 were achieved when the target between 100 and 150, and 10 when the target was more than 150. Their lowest target in a defeat is 204, against Bangladesh in 2018.
18 Wickets for Pakistan's fast bowlers in this match, at an average of 18.66. This was the 19th instance of their pacers picking up 18 or more wickets in a Test, but only the second time in a loss. The previous such instance was in Dunedin 1985. Their average of 18.66 is their best in a defeat when they have taken at least 15 wickets.
19y 336d Seales' age at the start of the match in which he took his maiden five-for, which made him the youngest West Indian to take a five-for in Test cricket. The record was previously held by Alf Valentine, who was 20 years and 41 days old at the start of the Test when he took his first five-for in England in 1950.
8 Catches for Joshua Da Silva in the match, only the fifth instance of a West Indies wicketkeeper effecting eight or more dismissals in a Test. He was just one short of the record of nine, by David Murray, Courtney Browne and Ridley Jacobs.
