Sarwan not coming out to bat and its all over. Pakistan have won the 3-match series 2-0. Pakistan took 4 wickets in the post-tea session in just 13 overs with Razzaq and Kaneria sharing those..Kaneria stuck a double blow in an over picking up the main wicket of Chanderpaul and striking Powell the very next delivery. Razzaq ran through the lower order with some good swing bowling and Pakistan made it quite easily in the final session than expected. Lara and Chaderpaul were the only ones to put up fight against Gul and co. Its a confident win for Pakistan going into the ODI-series with the mainstream bowlers sharing the wickets.

Umpires Harper and Benson had a tremendous game and made some excellent decisions throughout the Test match.

Mohammed Yousuf has been adjudged Man-of-match and Man-of-series for his excellent performance- he has got 665 runs in 5 innings at an average of 133 with 4 centuries and breaking a few records on the way, most important being the 30-year old record of Sir Viv Richards. Please join us for the 5-ODI series with the first match being played at Rawalpindi on Dec 5. Thats it from us....Cheers and bye!
