2nd ODI: Babar's century leads Pakistan to 282

He added, "A time comes in every player's life when he has to decide and I always tried my best to serve my county with my head high". Pakistan will play 3 Tests in West Indies starting from April 21.

According to a source quoted by Geo News, Younis is expected to make a formal announcement about the same at a press conference later in the day.

Apr.08: Just two days after Pakistan Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq announced his retirement from global cricket, veteran batsman Younis Khan too has confirmed that the upcoming three-match series against West Indies beginning April 22 in Barbados will be his last.

Master batsman of Pakistan cricket team, Younis Khan has on Saturday announced retirement, Pakistantribe.com reported.

Misbah said politics had put a stop to Indo-Pak bilateral ties since 2007 but after he became captain in late 2010 he remained optimistic he would get a chance to captain in a test series against the arch-rivals.

He has a career average of 53.06 and has managed 34 centuries - the most by a Pakistan batsman and level with Sunil Gavaskar's tally.

Hasan Ali (R) of Pakistan celebrates the dismissal of Jason Holder (L) of West Indies during the 2nd ODI match between West Indies and Pakistan at Guyana National Stadium, Providence, Guyana, on Sunday. It is indeed odd that the departure of the man who in 2010 was ridiculed for his role in Pakistan's loss to their arch-rival in the World T20 and then lambasted again in 2011 for his role in the loss to India in the World Cup, is today being marked as one of the saddest occasions for Pakistan cricket.

PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan also praised the outgoing captain for his contribution to cricket and announced that a befitting farewell function would be organized to honor the man. "It was an honour to represent Pakistan".

Hero of the opening One-Day International, Jason Mohammed, said leading West Indies to victory on Friday was the best moment of his career so far.

"Sarfraz is a fighter and the team looks united under his captaincy".

The tours of New Zealand and Australia in 2016/2017 was to prove a major source of embarrassment for the Pakistan Test team and Misbah-ul-Haq personally. Coming in to bat early, there was a little bit of pressure in terms of strike rate and stuff but I knew that I had to play myself in and rotate the strike and gain momentum, and take it down to the end as much as possible.
