In reply the Windies side chased down the total in efficient fashion and won the match by 5 wickets and with 10 overs to spare. TA Imlach scored 54 runs while SO Hetmyer scored a quick fire 42 ball 52 runs.

Although Umair’s century was in vain but he was given the man of the match award for his brilliant ton.
