During the ongoing Test series so far, Pakistan and the West Indies have lived up to their reputation of being unpredictable. With the series leveled at one all, here is a list of things that fans can look forward to during the final Test match in Roseau which starts from the 10th of May, 2017.

3. Azhar’s 5000

Azhar Ali has clearly been Pakistan’s best batsman in Test matches during the last six months or so. He is now 162 runs away from completing 5000 runs. Desperate to win the series Pakistan would be hoping that Azhar is able to achieve the feat in Roseau.

2. Retirement Game for Misbah and Younis

Pakistan’s Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq and star batsman Younis Khan had announced their retirement from Test cricket a few days before the series had commenced. The Test match in Roseau then should mark the end of an era for Pakistan as both greats would represent the green shirts for the last time.

Since nobody wants to lose a farewell game there is every possibility of the two of them going out of way to fight for a memorable series win.

1. Possibility of Pakistan’s First Ever Series Victory in the Caribbean Islands

Despite being a better team on paper for nearly two decades now, Pakistan is yet to win a Test rubber in the West Indies. Even though, the boys in green let themselves down with an extremely disappointing performance on the last day of the previous game they still remain to be the favorites and in case there are no disruptions owing to poor weather, Pakistan is expected to win the Test and with it its first ever Test series in the Caribbean Islands.
