The International Cricket Council took it to their Twitter handle to recognize this day as one of the most prominent and dominant days in the history and books of cricket. It was May 14, 2017, when Pakistan cricket captured its redemption. A big day for Pakistan and ICC has all praises for the PCB as they had secured their first Test series victory in the West Indies.
With the series level at one apiece, the hosts were given 304 and Roston Chase hit an unbroken 101 – but they were all out for 202, with Yasir Shah getting 5-92. Pakistan’s fast pacer claimed the vital wicket with only six balls remaining in the last Test to win the series.
It was Pakistan’s eighth Test series in the Caribbean, and it marked the conclusion of the Test careers of skipper Misbah-ul-Haq and record runscorer Younus Khan. Younus, 39, became the first Pakistan batsman to surpass 10,000 Test runs in the series’ first match, and he participated in 118 Tests. Misbah, who will be 43 at the end of this month, has played 75 Tests, including a record 56 as captain, with 26 victories, another Pakistan record.
Fans appreciate the importance of the day by extending their acknowledgement to Misbah, who leads the team, calling him the “number one” and also thanking Younus Khan for his impeccable contribution.
