'Unique' Younis eyes final Test milestone

As per the information released by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) late on Monday night, Hasan will undergo rehabilitation to get fit for the series opener scheduled for April 21-25 in Kingston, Jamaica.

Pakistan topped the Test rankings last September following their drawn series in England.

Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq hopeful to make the three-match series memorable for him as he will retire from global cricket after this series.

According to details, Pakistan have never won a Test series in West Indies, and Green Caps will be eager to change the stats by clinching the Test trophy.

The West Indies President's XI opted to bat again, though, and Powell made another half-century as the match ended in a draw.

Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan begin their final Test series on Friday when Pakistan take on West Indies in the first of three Sky Live matches, at Sabina Park.

Kraigg Brathwaite, the mainstay at the top of the batting order over the past three years, goes into the match still basking in the glow of his historic effort in the Sharjah Test victory when his unbeaten innings of 142 and 60 guided the West Indies to their first Test win over Pakistan away from home in 26 years.

In the bowling stakes Hasan Ali may miss the first Test with injury but Pakistan still have Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz as well as uncapped fast bowler Mohammad Abbas to call on as well as leg spinners Yasir Shah and debutant Shadab Khan who has troubled the West Indies all tour long.

West Indies: Jason Holder (capt), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Kraigg Brathwaite, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich (wk), Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Kieran Powell, Vishaul Singh.

Pakistan (possible): Misbah-ul-Haq (capt), Azhar Ali, Ahmed Shehzad, Babar Azam, Younis Khan, Asad Shafiq, Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Aamir, Wahab Riaz, Yasir Shah, Mohammad Abbas.
