K Roach: 'In England, the ball moves around a bit. I bowled in the right channels and I got the wickets. It is great to win the first match and the guys are relieved as Pakistan is a good team. We want to continue with the good performance against India.
Dwayne Bravo: 'The guys played well in tough conditions. Roach set the tone by taking wickets. He was backed up well by Narine and Rampaul. This game was important for us and it is good to get the nerves out of the way. We wanted to give the bowlers good use of a fresh pitch. We knew that Pakistan's bowling is strong. Misbah used his bowlers well but credit to the whole team for supporting me and getting the team over the line. In the team meeting, Chris Gayle mentioned that this venue is like playing at home.
Misbah-ul-Haq: 'The plan was to just see off the new ball but we lost too many wickets. The West Indies bowlers bowled very well. When I and Jamshed were batting, we were aiming for a score somewhere between 240-250. When mistakes are made, the whole team has to suffer. It does not matter that I did not get to the century. I am happy that the bowlers bowled with a lot of heart. We need to rectify the small mistakes for the coming games.'

The Oval track could cater to a high-scoring game, and take a bit of turn. The conditions may not support much swing.Scores of 238 and 252 were chased down comfortably by West Indies and England there last year.
