KINGSTON: Pakistan on Sunday failed to defend 168 against West Indies who fought well until the end to win the first Test by just one wicket here after a pulsating game which kept tilting the pendulum.

Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam said that a couple of dropped catches in the final session let them sunk. “We dropped a couple of catches in the final session which caused our loss. Although we also held some good catches but there is no excuse when you drop catches and lose the game,” Babar said in his post-match talks.

“It was an outstanding Test match as the pendulum kept shifting from one team to another. In the first innings me and Azhar had a good partnership but then fell a few quick wickets before we fought back. In the second innings we did not build any big partnership and so could not score more. In Test cricket when you get momentum you need to build on it and put a good total,” Babar said.

“I will give credit to my bowlers who bowled very well. Shaheen Afridi, Hasan Ali and Mohammad Abbas bowled really well. I hope they will further do well in the next game,” said Babar.
