The end of the third and final Test between the West Indies and Pakistan at Roseau, Dominica, on May 14 also marked the end of the illustrious careers of two of the best cricketers to have played for Pakistan. Yasir Shah's fifth wicket of the innings, off the last ball of the penultimate over of the Test, sealed a series win, Pakistan's first ever in the Caribbean.

Devendra Bishoo and Alzarri Joseph also offered some resistance but it was Gabriels defiance through eight nerve- jangling overs with Chase that nearly took the West Indies to safety and a drawn series.

With the series tied at 1-1, the hosts were set 304 and Roston Chase made an unbeaten 101 - but they were all out for 202, Yasir Shah taking 5-92.

Both Misbah and Younis had earlier announced that they would bid adieu to global cricket following the recently-concluded three-match Test series against West Indies, which the tourists eventually won 2-1.

Younis is one of the few players to have ammassed 10,000 runs in Test cricket. Whatever success I had through my career, I couldn't have asked for a better finish.

"I didn't really do that well in Dubai, so after that series I came home and worked on some of the things that I thought brought my shortfall in Dubai".

"Both these batsmen have given so much to the sport and fans over their careers", Richardson said.

However, the tourists struggled to build on their first-innings lead of 129 as they slipped to 90 for seven, with retiring veterans Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq both failing to make significant scores in their final Test knocks. I'll go and look at some footage of the English guys and see what weaknesses they have, what I'll be looking to exploit and see if that can work. "It doesn't even matter that I got a hundred". It was a very fine journey with him in the middle, sharing a lot of partnerships, and I loved every moment of that.

"I'm really disappointed that we couldn't hold on for just one more over", said a crestfallen Chase. He led Pak in 48 matches, winning 24 and losing 13 whereas 11 matches ended in draws.

Taking to his twitter account, former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif said that though Chase displayed a solid performance, Misbah and Younis managed to get a ideal send-off.

Reflecting on the same, Chase said he was glad to average more than 100 in the series against a quality attack, adding that he is hoping to display a similar kind of performance in the upcoming series against England.

Their 61-run partnership, surviving a couple of chances, ensured Pakistan closed in on a lead of almost 300.
