Pakistan skipper Misbah- ul-Haq struck two straight sixes on Wednesday to give his team a seven-wicket win over West Indies shortly after lunch on the fifth day of the first test.

Chasing only 32 for victory, the visitors ended on 36-3 in their second innings after both openers had gone cheaply Azhar Ali for 1 and Ahmed Shehzad for 6.

Pakistan went to lunch at 13-2 and needing another 19 runs. While the result was never really in doubt, West Indies claimed one more wicket as Younis Khan, who reached 10,000 test runs in the first innings, was the third man out.

Devendra Bishoo trapped Younis leg before wicket for 6. Earlier, West Indies resumed the final day on 93-4 and still trailing by 28 runs. The hosts survived just under 25 overs to be all out for 152. Pakistan legspinner Yasir Shah added two more wickets for 6-63.

Kieran Powell was the top scorer for West Indies, out for 49 in the penultimate over on Wednesday.

West Indies scored 286 in its first innings and Pakistan replied with 407 for a 121-run first-innings lead, with Misbah running out of partners on 99, one short of his 11th test century.
