Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi believed that Pakistan could have won the first Test if batsmen performed well.

The former all-rounder, in a tweet, praised the fighting spirit displayed by pacer Hasan Ali and Shaheen Shah Afridi during the match.
Stunning Test match! Brilliant fight by Pakistan led by Shaheen and Hasan Ali, credit to West Indies for the victory, Pakistan could have won with a better batting display. This was Test cricket at it’s best, all the best to Babar and boys for 2nd match
