At the first attempt in his farewell tour, Younis Khan became the first Pakistan batsman to 10,000 Test runs at Sabina Park on Sunday.
Needing just 23 runs to reach the landmark, Younis’ historic moment came in the first over after tea as the 39-year-old swept Roston Chase for four.
Younis, Pakistan’s highest Test run scorer, retires at the end of the series in the Caribbean and was chasing the record in his swansong.
Earlier in the day, Younis had reiterated his plans for retirement after reports that he would carry on if his country needed him.
In a video post, he said: “A lot has been said about my retirement from cricket that maybe Younis wants to keep on playing Test cricket which is absolutely not true. I had announced my retirement with a plan, with honour after thinking and according to my wish.
“The question that was asked to me, what my answer was and what version went out, I don’t want to go in detail. Younis Khan will retire even if he scores a hundred in every innings of every match against West Indies. Please don’t doubt Younis Khan’s credibility and support Pakistan. Pray for Younis Khan and for Pakistan that we can win a Test series for the very first time in West Indies.”
