Chase retires hurt as Windies crawl towards Pakistan total

An unbeaten century from Roston Chase was not enough for West Indies as they were dismissed in the penultimate over of the final day as Pakistan completed a 101-run victory in the third and final Test in Dominica to wrap up the series 2-1.

In the end he completed his third Test century but was left helpless at the non-striker's end when Gabriel, who had defended resolutely for 21 balls, inexplicably attempted a wild drive off Shah and dragged the ball back onto his stumps.

Both men's careers ended on a high note as Pakistan won the final Test match and the series 2-1 against the West Indies, eliciting praise from fans who posted "Mis-You" in honour of their retirement.

The tourists are chasing their first Test-series win in the Caribbean in a landmark match for the tourists with both Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan retiring from worldwide cricket afterward.

Former Pakistan cricket captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who retired after leading Pakistan to a record breaking series over the West Indies, shared the secrets of his success as a captain in a recent interview. There were frustrations. No-balls, wickets, couple of chances here and there, but you enjoy wins like this much more than straightforward wins. The opener was beaten by turn and gave wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed a second straight catch to be out for 29, after 123 balls, only one of them a boundary. "Especially Yasir Shah got the better of me a lot and this was mainly because he was tying me down and then I was just falling to a bad shot because of the pressure", Chase said. People think that maybe I carry these regrets, but no. "Work hard on those weaknesses so that I can put up some good performances in that series as well", he said.

"Really happy for this team, all the guys here, the way they gave me and Younis send-offs". It was a fine journey with him in the middle, sharing a lot of partnerships. Misbah retires with a batting average of more than 46 and sadly without having captained his team in his own country.

"In the history books, my name will come with him and he's a legend".

Younis Khan was first appointed as captain of the Pakistan ODI and Test team on a full-time basis in 2009. I'm missing him, he's got his exams so couldn't be with us.

"We should do this, and if others start it up, then I will stand by them for sure", said the 39-year-and-118-Test-old Younis, the first to enter the 10,000-run club for Pakistan. No other batsman made more than 300.
