"Misbah has been the bedrock of many a Pakistan innings, time and time again extricating his team from hard situations with a terrific temperament", the former South Africa wicket-keeper said. "The bowlers bowled their heart out on a slow track". "Everyone was so motivated". While he ended as one of the greats of the game, rating Younis as a captain is not easy.

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.

Younis' career batting average of 52.05 is also the best by any Pakistan i batsman and the third best by any batsman from Asia. Really happy for this team, all the guys here. "I gave 200% everywhere I played", he said. I wish him all the best. It was a very fine journey with him in the middle, sharing a lot of partnerships, and I loved every moment of that. "In the history books, my name will come with him and he's a legend", said Misbah.

Increasingly impressive in his first Test series, the fast-medium bowler took the last four wickets of the West Indies innings for three runs in a four-over spell after an early breakthrough from fellow pacer Mohammad Amir to finish with the excellent figures of five for 46 off 25 disciplined overs.

But Gabriel, who had defended purposely for just over half-hour, suffered a rush of blood and essayed a wild slog at the 22nd delivery he faced - the last of the day's penultimate over - and was bowled by champion leg-spinner Yasir Shah for four as the Windies were dismissed for 202.

Roston Chase celebrates another landmark during his superb unbeaten 101 on the final day of the third Test against Pakistan yesterday.

Although, a win for Pakistan seems more likely, giving the Men in Green their first Test series win in the West Indies.

Here are a few highlights from his career, considering which Misbah ul Haq can rightly be called Pakistan's number one captain. The Islanders still haven't recovered from the departure of stalwarts Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, who retired two years ago.

"My team-mates wanted me to go out on a winning note".

Bowling: Mohammad Amir 15-8-22-1 (w-2); Mohammad Abbas 20-9-31-1 (nb-2); Yasir Shah 37-13-92-5; Hasan Ali 20-7-33-3 (nb-1); Azhar Ali 2-0-3-0; Asad Shafiq 2-0-15-0. "Likewise, both of these batsmen leaving together could cause problems for Pakistan's test team". Although their stint at the top was short-lived as India replaced them.

Considering Misbah and Younis as "highly accomplished" batsmen, former Indian cricketer and renowned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar hailed the duo for great cricket memories.

"The PCB should put on 2 Testimonial matches in Pakistan for Misbah and Younis playing against a World XI!"
