Two cricketing legends of Pakistan cricket, Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan finally called time on their illustrious career after the end of third and final Test between West Indies and Pakistan at Roseau, Dominica, on May 14.
Both teams were level at 1-1 before the final Test and Pakistan registered a 101-run victory to seal off the series 2-1 by bowling out West Indies for 202. While chasing 303, they lost six wickets for mere 93 runs, but after Roston Chase’s second Test hundred of the series with 101 not out Windies had a slight hope of drawing the Test which later went went in vain.
“This was just incredible,” said Misbah when seven balls were left in the match and Yasir Shah provided the last dismissal by grabbing the wicket of Shannon Gabriel and ensue wild celebrations for Pakistan.
“There were so many things happening in that last session — dropped catches, appeals, no-ball dismissals — it looked for a while as if it wasn’t going to happen. I am thankful for myself, the team and all supporters of Pakistan cricket that we were able to pull it off.”, said the Pakistan captain after the match.
