The win gave Pakistan a 2-0 lead in the three-game series. It was also their 10th consecutive ODI series win over the West Indies.
Babar Azam praised Nawaz’s exceptional spell, saying: “I think we were 10-15 short because we lost back-to-back wickets. But there was spin so we were confident at half time that we could defend this and Nawaz took wickets at crucial moments and brought us back into the game. †
Nicholas Pooran also praised the Pakistani bowler. “It was a tough day for us. I thought we bowled well in the first 45 overs, but we had to give up 20 too many. Nawaz, who bowled really well, should take credit.”
