Chase century in vain as Pakistan win series with 6 balls to spare

User Rating: / 0

West Indies fell to a 101-run defeat with six balls remaining to concede the decisive third and final Test of the series and hand Pakistan an historic first series victory on Caribbean soil.

A memorable, unbeaten third Test hundred of 101 from Chase almost staved off defeat before West Indies were dismissed 202 in their second innings about an hour past the regularly scheduled close on the final day of the contest at Windsor Park.

Chase and the West Indies lower-order made the Pakistani bowlers toil, after the visitors took the second new ball with 17 overs remaining.

Tail-ender Shannon Gabriel was bowled by leg-spinner Yasir Shah on the final ball of the penultimate over however, allowing Pakistan legends Misbah-ul-Haq and Younus Khan to retire on a winning and memorable note.

Had Gabriel survived, Chase would have had strike for the final over, but the Pakistanis won the match and the series 2-1.
