That is it from this game then. Afghanistan will have the chance to level the series when both the sides return on the same ground on 9th November for the 2nd ODI of the 3-match series. That game starts at 1400 local (0830 GMT). Till then, take care!

Man of the Match, Roston Chase, says the pitch was not easy to bat on and that helped him when he was bowling. States he was pleased as his team kept Afghanistan under 200. Ends by saying the skipper has always supported him and he just needs to bat in his normal way and he need not do anything special.

West Indies skipper, Kieron Pollard, says losing early wickets has been an issue for them but they dug it out well today. States Chase and Hope showed their class and they fulfilled their roles and it was a complete team effort. Mentions they have had chats about how they want to go about the game. Further says that Jason Holder was brilliant with the new ball and the debutants were also good. Adds there were a couple of blemishes but it was a good overall performance.

Afghanistan skipper, Rashid Khan, says 240-250 would have been a good score. Further adds had they fielded well and bowled well even this could have been defended. States the Windies gave them a few opportunities but they could not capitalize and then they took the game away from them completely. Ends by saying they will learn a lot from this game and come out with an improved performance in the next one.

Earlier in the day, it was the Windies bowlers who set the match up for them! They did extremely well to bowl Afghanistan out for below 200 especially after an 111-run stand between Ikram Ali Khil and Rahmat Shah. When the two were batting, 250 seemed possible but in the end, exceptional spells by Holder and Chase with good support by the others saw them being bundled out for 6 short of 200 which was chased down easily.

The Afghanistan bowling began nicely but started running out of gas as the game progressed. Not sure what the actual reason was, maybe the dew or just that the wicket eased out way too much in the end. It seemed that Afghanistan were at least 50 runs short of what could have been a competitive total.

Way too easy in the end for the Windies! All the talks about the pitch being tough, there is a lot of purchase for the spinners and the Afghan spinners could cause a lot of problem has been thrown out of the window. One partnership is what they needed and they got a huge one, a 163-run stand between Hope and Chase. However, West Indies were in a spot of bother when the two joined association but the duo played their shots and tackled the Afghanistan spinners at ease. Hope remained unbeaten. Chase though was unfortunate to miss out on his first ODI ton by just six runs. However, they will be happy with this victory.
