Veteran Pakistan batsman Younis Khan was on Wednesday given a guard of honour by the West Indies players as he came on to bat in his final Test during the opening day of the third Test at Roseau, Dominica. Younis shook West Indies captain Jason Holder’s hand and acknowledged the other players when he arrived at the crease. Younis announced ahead of the series that he will bid farewell to Test cricket at the end of the series. He is the first Pakistan player to have scored over 10,000 runs in Tests, having made his debut back in 2000, aged 22. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Pakistan vs West Indies 2017, 3rd Test at  Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica

Younis in his illustrious Test career has scored 34 hundreds and 33 fifties, with an average of well over 50 in his 118 Tests. He will further look to improve his record in his farewell match. This match also marks the final Test appearance of Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq, who like Younis also announced his departure before the beginning of this series. Misbah and Younis are two of Pakistan’s most experienced players at the moment. Their departure will pave way for new breed of cricketers to come into the side.

He has the unique distinction of scoring centuries in 11 countries, which includes UAE – Pakistan’s adopted home. Incidentally, Younis Averages just over 22 in the Caribbean, which is something he would look to improve on in his final match.
