West Indies and Pakistan were involved in a nerve-wrenching Test match at Sabina Park in Kingston. The match went down to the wire, and the West Indies triumphed over the Pakistan outfit with just one wicket to spare in dramatic fashion.
And, in the commentary box was former West Indian cricketer, Ian Bishop, and he gave life to the wonderful moments that took place on the field.
As Kemar Roach drove Hasan Ali past cover to hit the winning runs, Bishop bellowed, “The West Indies have won in the most remarkable Test victory for the teacher and his student, Kemar Roach, and Jayden Seales, take a bow!”, screamed an excited Bishop from the commentary box.
Bishop also hailed Pakistan for their fighting spirit throughout the Test match and stated that the match was a great spectacle of Test match cricket.
“Pakistan have fought valiantly, this has been one of the great spectacles of Test match cricket,” stated Bishop sitting in the commentary box.
Bishop further heaped praise on Jayden Seales. Stating that Seales was the first teenager to scalp a five-wicket haul for the West Indies, Bishop added that Seales has done the job for his country with the willow in hand.
“Jayden Seales, on the day he picked his first five-wicket haul, the first teenager to do it for the West Indies, and he does a job with the bat from the man who is teaching him everything he needs to know,” said Bishop in the commentary box.

The first Test match between West Indies and Pakistan was one for the ages. Pakistan batted first and posted 217 on the board, and the West Indies replied with a total of 253, with Kraigg Brathwaite scoring a masterly 97.
Pakistan was bowled out for 203 in their second innings, with Jayden Seales scalping a five-wicket haul with the red cherry in hand. West Indies were set a target of 168 for victory, and the hosts were reduced to 151/9. But then, Kemar Roach and Jayden Seales kept their cool and steered their side to a remarkable one-wicket victory.
