“A remarkable test. We never lost hope. Pakistan bowled very well, & this pitch requires patience from the batsmen. Whoever had more patience came out on top. We have some time before the next test & it will be a different pitch. The bowlers did well, they were tired, but they gave it their all”, Brathwaite told the broadcaster after the match.
“We have been working hard as a batting group & Blackwood is hungry for runs at his home ground so good on him. Pakistan will come back hard, but whoever is more patient will come out on top. I think was a good cricket pitch-had something for the pacers, & had value for runs because the ball was coming on”, he added.
