Pakistan farewell Misbah, Younis with dramatic win
Pakistan clinched their first ever series win in the Caribbean when they beat the West Indies in a thrilling finish to the third Test in Dominica on Sunday, giving Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq a perfect retirement present. A valiant, unbeaten century by Roston Chase almost staved off defeat for the West Indies, who were all out for 202 in their second innings with only one over remaining at Windsor Park in Roseau. Chase and the West Indies tail made the Pakistan bowlers sweat after the visitor took the new ball with 17 overs remaining, still needing two more wickets. With a draw tantalisingly close, West Indies No 11 Shannon Gabriel was bowled by leg-spinner Yasir Shah on the final ball of the penultimate over when he tried to slog over the close-in field but instead edged the ball onto the stumps. Had Gabriel, who stoutly defended 21 deliveries before his rush of blood, survived the ball, Chase would have had strike for the final over and a draw would have been on the cards. Chase ended 101 not out. Two balls earlier, Gabriel had been given out caught at silly point but the decision was overturned amid high drama when video review showed the ball had struck only his pad. Pakistan won the match by 101 runs to seal the series 2-1. Pakistan captain Misbah said he could not have asked for a better finish to his career. Misbah retires with a batting average of more than 46 and without having captained his team in his own country. Other cricketing nations have refused to play there in the wake of the 2009 terrorist attack on a Sri Lanka team bus. Younis leaves as Pakistan's most prolific batsman, with 10,099 Test runs at an average of more than 52. BRIEF SCORE Pakistan 376 & 174/8d beat West Indies 247 & 202 in 96 overs (Chase 101*, Yasir 5/92) by 101 runs
