West Indies captain Jason Holder hailed his teammate Kraigg Brathwaite for seeing off a stubborn Pakistani bowling attack and register their first test win since May 2015. Brathwaite played brilliantly as he scored 142 in the first innings and was still at the crease unbeaten on 60 as West Indies emerged victorious. The West Indies successfully chased down 153 runs with 5 wickets in hand.

Jason also said that they did a lot of right things in the series which they can learn from despite losing the series.

“We showed character and fight. Credit must go to Kraigg Brathwaite. He played an outstanding innings in the first innings and took responsibility of the chase in the second innings,” Holder said of his deputy. “Even though we lost the series, we did a lot of things right.”

Kraigg was also congratulated by his sixth-wicket partner Shane Dowrich who himself scored a half century is the tricky run chase. The Caribbean won the test ion the final day of the match when the successfully scored the remaining 39 runs.

According to Brathwaite, this was the finest innings he has ever played as we wish to repeat this kind of performance in the future and wants to score a lot of runs. He nearly batted for 10 hours over the course of the two innings he remained unbeaten in.

“The plan was to keep rotating strike and bring the target down,” he said. “I knew my weak and strong areas. It was just a case of working around my strengths and backing my abilities. I knew on a low pitch, getting onto the front foot to play your strokes would give more runs than staying on the back foot.”

Shane Dowrich also said that being positive was the most important thing in the win. He feels that this is the right approach for playing test cricket which he had dreamt of playing from his childhood as he hopes to deliver such great performances for the Caribbean in the future.
