London: West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo admitted that they made a heavy weather of the paltry run chase, but he credited his bowlers for restricting Pakistan to 170 which eventually set up the platform for the win.
Opting to ball, paceman Kemar Roach and spinner Sunil Narine shared six wickets between them to help West Indies bowl out Pakistan for a paltry 170 in 48 overs.
While chasing, West Indies were in a spot of bother before scampering home with two wickets in hand in 40.4 overs.
"(It was a) tough situation. But lot of credit goes to the boys. Kemar (Roach) set the stone, backed up by (Ravi) Rampaul and (Sunil) Narine," Bravo said after West Indies defeated Pakistan by two wickets in a low-scoring Group B encounter of the Champions Trophy at the Kennington Oval.
Asked the reason behind his decision to bowl first after winning the toss, the West Indies skipper said, "We didn't want Pakistan to bowl first, because there would be moisture and movement. They bowled really well in the chase too, but credit to the boys.
