Sharing is caring! LocalNewsSports Pakistan takes home Q-Mobile Cup Trophy after 2-1 series win by: Dominica Vibes News – May 15, 2017 164 Views no discussions Share Tweet Share Share © WICB MediaThe Pakistani team has made history by winning their first test series in the West Indies after Yasir Shah took a five wicket haul to win the final test in the Windsor Park Stadium on Sunday, May 14th, 2017, winning the three-match series two games to one. The game was heading towards a draw after Man-of-the-Match, Roston Chase, steadied the West Indies innings after a top order collapse, scoring a patient one hundred and one (101) runs to slowly draw the game and ultimately the series. However, the draw was not to be as Chase could not find a partner to steady the other end, with wickets continuously falling at the opposite end. Still there was a ray of hope when Shannon Gabriel and Roston Chase put on a rocky partnership bringing the game down to the last few overs. With seven balls remaining before the game ended a draw was expected, before Gabriel, who had previously faced twenty dot balls, went for what many described as ‘a rash and unnecessary’ shot, when he was bowled of the final ball of the penultimate over, giving Yasir Shah his fifth wicket and Pakistan the game and the series. Captain of the West Indies team, Jason Holder stated during the post-match presentation that he was proud of the team and the way that they played. He noted that he thinks the team is improving considering it is a team of young players, and congratulated the retiring Pakistani batsman on what he referred to as outstanding careers. “I think we are heading in the right direction,” he said. “We are coming up against good teams. Pakistan were No. 1 not too long ago. We need to learn to seize crucial moments. I said to the guys that I was extremely proud of the way we fought. Lot of room for improvement. We had faith in our batting. Chase was outstanding, Gabriel too. Myself and Joseph chipped in as well. Credit to the Pakistanis. Want to congratulate Misbah and Younis for their outstanding careers. You’ve been ambassadors for world cricket,” he noted. Chase, who was awarded man of the match for his hundred and seventy (170) runs and five wickets in the match, stated that he was just trying to save a game. “Just basically was trying to save the Test. I just say what you learn, practice it and fight hard. It is a learning experience. We fought hard and I thought it was a good effort by the guys. I had a good series but it wasn’t good enough in the end. Hopefully, we can be on the winning side next time,” he noted. The win however was a bittersweet one, as it was the final test match for two Pakistani cricket greats, Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan who officially retired after their win. Misbah stated that he was very proud of how his team played, especially in these conditions. He noted that while his team was under pressure, they really wanted the win, which encouraged them to work hard and do their best to secure the win. He went on to say that he is thankful for the chance that he had to play and represent his country, and wished Younis Khan the best of luck.Chase ended the series as the leading run scorer with four hundred and three (403) runs, including two hundreds at an average 100.75, while Yasir Shah ended as the leading wicket taker, and man of the series, with twenty-five wickets at an economy rate of 2.92.
Two goals from Benik Afobe and a superb own-goal-resulting cross from substitute Jack Hunt saw City follow up victories against QPR and Derby County with a win at the KCOM Stadium.Here’s what Head Coach Johnson had to say after the eight-day points haul:PERFECT WEEK“I’m very pleased with the boys and they have earned an extra day off after that week, that’s for sure! It was always going to be a tough game because Hull are a good side. They have the two wide men (Grosicki and Bowen) who are outstanding individually but we did feel as if we may be able to take over as the game went on, particularly with their third game in a week.”CHARACTERCity were forced into an early change when Tomas Kalas came off with a hamstring injury after 30 minutes and was replaced with Kasey Palmer, while 20-year-old Antoine Semenyo looked assured as a second-half replacement for Famara Diédhiou.“The players showed character,” said Johnson. “Did we expect another injury to a key player (Kalas) – absolutely not. I think Taylor Moore will be able to look at himself tonight and be very proud of his performance. I thought Dan Bentley made two or three unbelievable saves to keep us in it. We felt we should have had a penalty where Benik Afobe got pulled down. The midfield worked like Trojans and Han-Noah Massengo, with the energy he put in and the quality he showed on the ball for an 18-year-old was top drawer. Josh Brownhill stood up to the challenge of being captain and it’s a 100 per cent record for him.”PENALTY TAKERSAfobe opened the scoring with a penalty after Tommy Rowe was brought down, quickly claiming the ball for the spot-kick, and Johnson said: “I am happy that two or three players wanted to take the penalty. Any one of Browny, Weimann, Famara and Benik could have taken it but obviously Benik was playing quite well at the time and took the ball. I don’t mind who takes it when they score!”COMING HOMECity are back at Ashton Gate next Saturday when Middlesbrough visit in a 12.30pm kick-off and Johnson added: “There’s been a real intensity to this week both mentally and physically. It’s a fine line because you want to give them some downtime but you also don’t want to lose the momentum. Make no mistake, we are looking forward to coming home on the back of three wins and I’m sure Ashton Gate will be pumping.”SECURE YOUR MIDDLESBROUGH TICKET
