Commentary

Presentation Quotes:
Afridi: 'I am happy with the performance. I must give my man of the match award to Zulfiqar Babar. I am happy with the performance of Umar Amin and everybody contributed.'
Shahid Afridi is the MoM for his 46 off 27 balls.
Hafeez: 'It was a great effort by the players. I am really happy with the contribution of the two debutants. Watching Afridi bat was exceptional. It was a tough chase but there were some positive intentions. Umar Amin played really well and he showed good technique.'
Darren Sammy: 'We should have defended the total. We gave too many runs away in the powerplay. We should have fielded better and executed better with the ball. We will look to level the series tomorrow. We have to learn to bowl in the death overs. With Gabriel's extra pace, he got Afridi out but he will have to learn from this. We executed our batting really well but the bowlers did not back up the good work.'
Pakistan kept a healthy scoring rate but lost wickets at regular intervals. However, Umar Amin stepped up and scored runs at will. His 47 laid the base for Pakistan's march towards victory. Shahid Afridi also played a vital knock but he lost his wicket at a crucial time. Zulfiqar Babar struck a four and a six to seal a thrilling two wicket win for Pakistan. Gabriel's erratic second last over, in the end, has proven to be very costly for the West Indies.
The rain is really lashing down now at Arnos Vale. The game has just ended at the right time. This is Pakistan's first win over West Indies in T20Is and they become the third team, after South Africa and West Indies, to win a T20I against every team.

SIX, Pakistan win, what a sensational win for them, a low full toss outside off, Babar gets underneath the delivery and launches it over the ropes at long off for a crucial six, this is Pakistan's first T20I win over West Indies
Junaid Khan, right handed bat, comes to the crease
This is equivalent to a Bollywood Masala flick here. One run needed, one ball remaining, it is raining as well.
19.5 Marlon Samuels to Saeed Ajmal W
out Ajmal Run Out!! The game is still alive. Full and fast delivery just outside off, Ajmal drills it out to mid off and takes off for an impossible single, Simmons lines up and has a shy at the bowler's end, he scores a direct hit and Ajmal is well short of the crease. Ajmal run out (Simmons) 0(1)
19.4 Marlon Samuels to Zulfiqar Babar 1lb
leg byes, 1 run, quick delivery on leg stump, Babar looks to nudge it to the leg side and it rolls off the pads, they pinch a quick single
The rain has started to fall again at Arnos Vale.
19.3 Marlon Samuels to Zulfiqar Babar 0
no run, full and fast delivery outside off, Babar misses out on the drive, 121.3 kmph was the speed
