Pakistan claim their first-ever Test series win in the Caribbean in thrilling finale to Dominica decider

West Indies v Pakistan Tests, Third Test


Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq have retired on a winning note after Pakistan clinched their first series win in the Caribbean when they beat West Indies in dramatic circumstances late on day five of the third Test in Dominica.

An unbeaten 101 by Roston Chase almost staved off defeat for 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 visitors took the new ball with 17 overs remaining.

But No.11 Shannon Gabriel, who had survived 21 balls, was bowled by leg-spinner Yasir Shah on the final ball of the penultimate over when he attempted a wild slog with virtually every Pakistani player surrounding the bat.

Had Gabriel survived that ball, centurion Chase would have had strike for the final over.

It was a bittersweet day for Chase, who ended the series with 403 runs – the second-most by a West Indian in a three-Test series against Pakistan.

Pakistan won the match by 101 runs to win the series 2-1.
