Pakistan beat West Indies in penultimate over

17 Mai 2017

"Nothing better than that (the win)". Disappointing to lose but we've seen something we haven't seen in a long time with West Indies cricket. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

"When the game just hangs in the balance (till) an over before, it's hard". "I was really sad when Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene left the Sri Lankan team together".

"The bowlers bowled their hearts out on a slow track", he said.

Courtesy of a magnificent unbeaten 101 from the immovable Man-of-the-Match Roston Chase, West Indies defied a ruthless but tiring Pakistan bowling attack for almost 90 overs and appeared on the brink of a brilliant rescue effort, with seven balls left in the day at Windsor Park. Chase ended 101 not out.

Misbah had amassed 5,222 runs in 75 Tests, including 10 tons and 39 half-centuries, before retiring.

Inzamam, while responding to a poser about Pakistan's chances after the retirements of 75-Test Misbah and 118-Test Younis, said similar concerns were raised and people were anxious when players like Imran Khan and Wasim Akram left the game but eventually their replacements were found.

Younis, on the other hand, recently became the first Pakistani batsman to score 10000 Test runs. "Work hard on those weaknesses so that I can put up some good performances in that series as well", he said. "I thought that really was the key, seeing that he was there all series, so once I got through him it was a little easier for me to play the other bowlers".

A few runs were scored here and there but they were largely irrelevant. Whatever I could, with bat, ball, in the field. It was only for her, I would have finished in Australia but she felt I could go on.

Younis made it clear that he may not be involved with the game post-retirement.

People think that maybe I carry these regrets, but no.

Yuvraj's appreciation of the Pakistani cricketers sets great example given the fact that the two countries share a bittersweet rivalry on-field. I will remember his lesson forever: if you do not give up, dreams do come true.

One thing Younis will be doing plenty of is fishing, his favourite pastime.

"The way they gave me and Younis a send-off". I wish [Younis] all the best. It was a fine journey with him in the middle, sharing a lot of partnerships.

He also lavished praise for Younis, saying the latter has been a legend and a top performer for Pakistan.

Somehow, Pakistan must now fill the gargantuan hole left by Misbah's exit, as well as that of his great comrade Younis Khan.

“I am thankful for myself, the team and all supporters of Pakistan cricket that we were able to pull it off.”. And especially this series.

Holder was gutted to have come so close to saving the match, and said: "Proud of the fight that we showed". He's watching on TV, so I'm missing him. He has his exams, so couldn't travel.
