Pakistan win series against West Indies in thriller

Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq are retiring on a winning note after Pakistan clinched their first ever test series victory in the Caribbean when they beat West Indies in a thrilling finish to the third test in Dominica.

A valiant unbeaten century by Roston Chase almost staved off defeat for West Indies on day five on Sunday (NZT Monday), before his team were dismissed 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 visitors took the new ball with 17 overs remaining. But number 11 Shannon Gabriel was bowled by leg-spinner Yasir Shah on the final ball of the penultimate over to give the visitors the win.

Had Gabriel survived that ball, Chase would have had strike for the final over. He ended on 101 not out. Pakistan won the match by 101 runs to win the series 2-1. (Courtesy Reuters)
