Babar Azam and Kraigg Brathwaite both take the trophy and pose for the cameras. The series has been leveled 1-1 by Pakistan. That is all we have from this series and we hope that you enjoyed our coverage. There is plenty of cricketing action coming in the near future and we hope you will join us for the same. Till then, take care and goodbye!

Babar Azam, the Pakistan skipper, says that it was a very important game as they lost the first game. Says that the partnership between him and Fawad Alam was very crucial. Adds that Shaheen Afridi was outstanding with the ball. Further adds that they wanted West Indies to bat around 20 overs on Day 4, which worked for them. Informs that they wanted to set a target around 330 for West Indies and they needed to be bold to level the series. Praises Nauman Ali for providing with 3 big wickets. Mentions that they wanted to play a spinner in this game as they felt that it would turn late in the game. About Shaheen Afridi, says that he is very young and is improving constantly.

Shaheen Afridi is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH and PLAYER OF THE SERIES. Shaheen Afridi starts by saying that it was a team effort and he is happy that he delivered for his team. He adds that it was tough because it was the last day and it was very hot. He adds that they knew when one wicket comes another one will soon follow. He also adds that all credit for his development goes to his brother and ends by saying that it was a very important win and happy to get on the board on the WTC points table.

Kraigg Brathwaite, the West Indies skipper, says that they were behind the game from the start. Adds that the batters need to work on the mindset as they are technically sound. Says that they need to find a way to get through the tough periods. Further adds that the team did a superb job in the first Test and the bowlers bowled really well in this game too. Says that they were not good in the first innings in this Test and that cost them. Praises Jayden Seales and says that he is a star in the making and he can get over 250 Test wickets. Praises Pakistan and says that they were very good as a bowling group. 

Earlier in the Test, Pakistan were in big trouble at the start of Day 1 as they lost 3 wickets very early. But Babar Azam and Fawad Alam ensured that they recovered from that. The first innings was all about Alam as he went on to score a ton and made sure that his team got to a decent score. Despite Day 2 being washed out, the match remained exciting as late on Day 3, West Indies lost their top order and were behind the curve. It didn't take Pakistan too long to wrap things up on Day 4 and they had a big lead of 152 as the hosts crumbled for 150. The star of the show was Shaheen Afridi as he took 6 wickets in the first innings. Pakistan came out to bat with the sole intent of scoring quick runs and they did just that as they scored 176 runs at more than 6 runs per over. That meant that West Indies needed 329 runs to win the Test.

The stars for Pakistan in this innings were the two left-arm bowlers. Shaheen Afridi and Nauman Ali struck at the right time for the visitors and provided them with key breakthroughs. Shaheen Afridi took 4 wickets while Nauman Ali took 3 big ones. Hasan Ali was also very good in the first session and got 2 wickets. Afridi was sensational throughout the game and got 10 wickets in total.

West Indies had a big target to chase but they started decently. Kieran Powell and Kraigg Brathwaite were looking good but late on Day 4, Powell was run out. On Day 5 though, they had a collapse. In their top order, no one apart from Brathwaite and Jermaine Blackwood stayed out for long and both these two batters got out after getting starts. Kyle Mayers and Jason Holder did try to repair things but Mayers got out just before the rain break and they were in trouble. Holder and Joshua Da Silva stitched a decent stand, but Holder got out before the second new ball was available. That was the final nail in the coffin as the lower order crumbled.

A wonderful performance by Pakistan and they have deserved this victory. They lost the first Test by a whisker but have dominated this Test thoroughly. The hosts were outclassed and outplayed and barring that first hour on Day 1, they were never really on top of the game.

Shaheen Afridi to Joshua Da Silva, OUT! CAUGHT! That's it, Pakistan have leveled the series! Shaheen Afridi pitches this one up, on middle and Joshua Da Silva looks to take him on. Da Silva looks to go over mid on but only manages to find the fielder there, Faheem Ashraf who takes a simple catch. It is only fitting that Shaheen Afridi is the man to pick up the final wicket.
