The West Indies registered their first win in 14 Tests and the first under the captaincy of Jason Holder as they beat Pakistan by five wickets on Thursday. This was the first victory for the Men from the Caribbean outside the West Indies and Bangladesh since 2007. However, the win came a little too late as Pakistan won the three-match series 2-1.
Resuming the day on 114 for five, with 39 runs to win, overnight batsman Kraigg Brathwaite along with Shane Dowrich scored 60 runs each to ensure that the West Indies reached the target without any problems. That West Indies won the Test was thanks to the efforts of opener Brathwaite whose knocks of 142 in the first innings and 60 in the second took them home.
The player of the match award went to Brathwaite while Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah picked up the player of the series award. The West Indies will next be seen in action in five-day cricket when they tour England for a series that will see three Tests, five ODIs and one T20 International in August 2017.
