The West Indies Men's Cricket team held their nerve as tailenders Kemar Roach (above) and Jayden Seales guided them to a thrilling one-wicket win over Pakistan in the first test in Jamaica.

Roach scored 30 and Seales two in an unbeaten 17-run partnership as the home side reached their target of 168 for the loss of nine wickets after the West Indies had bowled Pakistan out for 203 in their second innings, with Seales taking 5/55.

Fortunes ebbed and flowed dramatically throughout the fourth day with 14 wickets falling, before Roach stroked the winning runs through the covers.

The West Indies looked to have little chance when they lost their last recognised batsman, Joshua da Silva, with 26 runs still required and two wickets left, but Roach took up the challenge with a confident batting display.
