    Our Chief Editor making it clear whose side he is on:

  • 9:11 PM IST

    WI battle on: Runs have not been easy to come by. Chase and Hope are digging in there and will look to do so till lunch, which is another 20 or so minutes away. Chase and Hope batted well in the first innings. But will have to bat incredibly if they are to have a chance of saving or even winning the match.

  • 8:33 PM IST

    Hetmyer dismissed: Mohammad Aamer has bowled Hetmyer for 25. Aamer set him up beautifully and deserves that wicket. Roston Chase is the new batsman. He will have to play as well as he did in the first innings.

  • 8:15 PM IST

    WI look positive: Despite losing an early wicket, Hetmyer and Hooe have looked positive. They are putting away the bad balls and scoring runs at every opportunity. Pakistan will not mind that as they have enough runs to play with. All the need is 8 more wickets to win.

    Misbah and Younis’ last day in international cricket for Pakistan:

  • 7:36 PM IST

    Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan receive guard of honour from their teammates as we begin Day 5 of the third Test. West Indies need 297 runs more, while Pakistan need 9 wickets to win. Which way will the match swing? Let’s find out.


Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live updates of Day 5 of the third and the final Test between Pakistan and West Indies at Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica. I am Pramod Ananth and I will be bringing you the live updates of the day’s play. As we enter the final Day’s play, Pakistan are just 9 West Indies wicket away from a series victory in the Caribbean – they’re first ever Test series victory in West Indies since their first tour in 1957-58. But given the way West Indies have displayed resolute batting in tough times, the Day Five proceedings won’t be easy for Pakistan.

The biggest threat for West Indies has been Yasir Shah. Yasir – the second innings giant – has rammed through the West Indies batting order and has dismissed 14 batsmen in the second innings (6 in Kingston, 7 in Barbados and 1 here). West Indies need 297 runs to win the final Test and the series, but to bat on a Day Five wicket against a lethal bowling attack will not be an easy task for Jason Holder and his men.

The priority for the hosts would be to bat out the entire day. But with their in-form opener Kieran Powell already back in the dressing room, things will not be easy. The hosts will have to ensure of at least batting out the entire first session without losing any wicket to put the pressure back on Pakistan. Roston Chase will be the lynchpin for the way the Barbadian has played in the series. Shai Hope and Holder too will have to present absolute dead bat if West Indies want to maintain their challenge.

As for Pakistan, the path to victory is already under construction as Yasir did the early damage by getting Powell. With the Day Five wicket available, Yasir will be the main weapon for Misbah-ul-Haq. Mohammad Abbas, Mohammad Aamer and Hasan Ali will have the responsibility of getting some early wickets so that Yasir can come along and inflict the damage.

With the fact that Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan are bidding farewell to international cricket, Pakistan will be hoping to register May 14, 2017, in golden words in their history giving the two legends the perfect ending. And I as a cricket fan and a writer feel extremely privileged to get the opportunity of covering this last match of the two legends from Pakistan. #MisYou
