West Indies were all out for 247 as Abbas five-for helps Pakistan in taking 129 runs lead

Fourteen wickets tumbled as a contest, which ambled lazily for the first three days, suddenly sprang to life on the fourth, leaving West Indies with the ominous task of surviving today's final day to deny Pakistan a historic series win in the Caribbean.

Departing stalwarts Younis Khan and captain Misbah ul Haq failed to make an impact in their farewell worldwide innings but Pakistan were poised to press for a series-clinching victory over the West Indies at stumps on the fourth day at Windsor Park in Dominica on Saturday.

Roston Chase, the first innings top-scorer, then joined Shai Hope with the pair defying all the challenges presented to them by the Pakistani attack, including Mohammad Abbas, the fast-medium bowler who had taken five wickets in the first innings.

In the end he completed his third Test century but was left helpless at the non-striker's end when Gabriel, who had defended resolutely for 21 balls, inexplicably attempted a wild drive off Shah and dragged the ball back onto his stumps.

Devendra Bishoo and Alzarri Joseph fell shortly after, but Chase continued to frustrate Pakistan and looked set to lead the West Indies to safety by seeing out the remainder of the day.

Both Misbah and Younis had earlier announced that they would bid adieu to worldwide cricket following the recently-concluded three-match Test series against West Indies, which the tourists eventually won 2-1.

Younis leaves as Pakistan's most prolific batsman, with 10,099 Test runs at an average of more than 52. Whatever success I had through my career, I couldn't have asked for a better finish.

Regarded by many as the most successful captain of Pakistan, even more successful than legends like Imran Khan and Javed Miandad, Misbah ul Haq's 16-year global career is filled with accomplishments.

Many former cricketers from India and Pakistan took to Twitter to wish the retiring duo and said the series win was the ideal farewell.

"I wouldn't say it's up there with the other two, but a century is a century", he said. It was a fine journey with him in the middle, sharing a lot of partnerships. While he ended as one of the greats of the game, rating Younis as a captain is not easy. I'm missing him, he's got his exams so couldn't be with us. "In the history books, my name will come with him and he's a legend", said Misbah.

Their 61-run partnership, surviving a couple of chances, ensured Pakistan closed in on a lead of almost 300. "Work hard on those weaknesses so that I can put up some good performances in that series as well", he said.
