India Today logo India Today 26-10-2016

Misbah-ul-Haq on Tuesday registered his 10th series win as captain as Pakistan hammered West Indies by 133 runs in the second Test to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Pakistan, riding on the back of a six-wicket haul from Yasir Shah in the second innings, bowled out the visitors for 322 on the final day of the match. Yasir, who had taken two wickets in West Indies' overnight 171 for four, bowled almost unchanged from the start of the final day to claim four more victims in figures of six for 124, his eighth five-wicket haul and second 10-wicket haul in 18 Tests.

Misbah with 10 series victories has now become the most successful Asian captain in Test history, surpassing the record of nine series wins set by former India captains Sourav Ganguly and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Pakistan legend Javed Miandad was next on the list with eight series wins as captain.

The win also enabled the hosts to stretch their unbeaten record at the Sheikh Zyed stadium. Out of nine Test played in Abu Dhabi, Pakistan have won five and drawn the rest of the games, which is their best performance on any other stadium in the world. They have a 6-2 record in Dubai and 4-3 in Sharjah.

Misbah is also the second-most successful Asian skipper in Test cricket. Ganguly is third on the list with 21 wins as captain of India, Misbah has 24 victories. Dhoni leads the list with 27 Test wins.
