The prime minister termed it a testament to the talent and hard work of Pakistani Cricketers.

Devendra Bishoo trapped Younis leg before wicket for 6.

Resuming their second innings on 93 for four, the hosts' suspect batting once again stayed true to form, collapsing for 152 all out, 37 minutes before the scheduled lunch interval.

Misbah was the top scorer in the fourth innings with 12 runs.

This wicket triggered the collapse of West Indies batting as debutant Mohammad Abbas then got 2 wickets of Bishoo (18) and Shane Dowrich (0) in a matter of 3 deliveries. Yasir Shah proved Pakistan's match-winner as he picked up six for 63 in second innings to put the homeside on the backfoot.

In contrast, Azam displayed much more aggression and goal although he once again fell short of a maiden Test century.

Younis, playing in his 116th Test, will retire after the three-match series in the Caribbean having made his debut in 2000.

Nasdaq Composite Tops 6000 for First Time
The Nasdaq Composite has crossed the 6,000-point milestone as investors flock to tech companies with strong growth outlooks. The tech-heavy Nasdaq rose as much as 0.4 percent to hit a record level of 6,007.72 helped by gains in Biogen and Apple .

Starting off the day on 201/4, Pakistan lost batsman Asad Shafiq early on as he was caught behind off the bowling of Shannon Gabriel for 22.

That late drama was in contrast to the pedestrian progress through the first two sessions of the day as Misbah worked his team into a dominant position despite being left one run short of an 11th Test century.

"To be honest, I've been waiting for this day for the past three years".

Former and current Pakistan players have come in unison to praise veteran batsman Younis Khan, who has become the country's first cricketer to complete 10,000 Test runs.

Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah took all the four wickets in the second innings, leaving the West Indies a huge task to avoid defeat on the final day. He and Misbah are retiring from test cricket after this series.

One bright spot for him was the performance of Kieran Powell, who scored 33 and 49 in his first test in almost three years.

Although West Indies did climb back into the game in the afternoon, the last wicket stand of 34 frustrated them until Mohammad Abbas was dismissed stranding Misbah on 99, the first Pakistani to suffer the misfortune. "With our combination, it's hard, it's hard to sneak in the fifth bowler, especially since we have six specialist batsmen, so having three fast bowlers and two spinners becomes tricky".
