Pakistan beat West Indies in penultimate over
ROSEAU – Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq will retire on a winning note after Pakistan clinched their first ever series win in the Caribbean when they beat West Indies in a thrilling finish to the third cricket Test in Dominica on Sunday.
A valiant unbeaten century 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 number 11 Shannon Gabriel was bowled by leg-spinner Yasir Shah on the final ball of the penultimate over.
Had Gabriel survived that ball, Chase would have had strike for the final over. He ended on 101 not out.
