Yasir Shah leads Pakistan to victory over West Indies

Yasir Shah leads Pakistan to victory over West Indies

"Pray for Younis Khan and for Pakistan that we can win a Test series for the very first time in West Indies".

Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo ended with one for 106, and part-time off-spinner Roston Chase, one for 37, and all-rounder Jason Holder, one for 65.

It took all of 297.1 overs for Pakistan to beat West Indies by seven wickets - which, if not for the rain interruptions, would have been over in just over three days of play.

In his usual phlegmatic, pedestrian manner, Misbah ensured Pakistan constructed their position of dominance via a succession of partnerships after they resumed on the fourth morning at 201 for four and facing the threat of the second new ball.

West Indies finally managed a breakthrough when Shannon Gabriel (3-92) had Shafiq caught behind and after a cautious start Sarfraz Ahmed (54) made a decision to accelerate.

He, in fact, has achieved numerous feats in his illustrious 116 Test career which saw him steering the team out of hard situation and the 10,000 runs may be his last milestone as he has already announced to retire after the series in West Indies but we have no doubt in saying that he will always be remembered for extraordinary performance at crucial times for the team.

For Younus to join the 10k club is even more impressive as unlike other members of the club he has achieved the feat in an era when Test cricket has had to share the stage with two other fledgling formats.

Trump order aimed at boosting agriculture
In a statement, Grassley said he has urged President Trump to consider Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey for a senior USDA role.

However, this will be a memorable series for Pakistan as two of its senior-most players Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan will bid farewell to worldwide cricket after the tour comes to an end.

Starting off the day on 201/4, Pakistan lost batsman Asad Shafiq early on as he was caught behind off the bowling of Shannon Gabriel for 22.

Younis will retire from Test cricket after the three-match series against West Indies.

Pakistan offered everything in this match that they have embodied as a team over the last three years.

"Up to today's Test match, 195 players, including Shimron Hetmyer and Vishaul Singh who have made their debuts in this match, would have represented the West Indies at Sabina Park", he added.

In keeping with his ultra-aggressive mode, Ahmed altered the pedestrian pace of the game from the moment he came to the crease, advancing down the pitch to the faster bowlers and seeking to score at every opportunity.
