West Indies need another 297 runs to win their series with Pakistan after wickets tumbled on an exciting day four of the third Test in Dominica.

Devendra Bishoo dismissed Pakistan stalwarts Younis Khan and captain Misbah ul Haq in their farewell global innings to leave the tourists struggling at 72 for five in their second innings at tea on the fourth day of the third and final Test against the West Indies in Dominica on Saturday.

Captain Jason Holder chipped in with 3 for 23 to add to his 3 for 42 in the Pakistan first innings along with a crucial 58 in the West Indies' first innings.

Pakistan opener Azhar Ali made his second century of the series as they batted into a strong position on the second day of the third Test against West Indies in Dominica on Thursday.

Chase, the first innings top-scorer, then joined Shai Hope with the pair defying all the challenges presented to them by the Pakistani attack until Hasan Ali got the breakthrough and his first Test wicket 20 minutes before lunch, trapping Hope leg-before with a full-length inswinger.

But the bowler had the last laugh with the next delivery as an attempted reverse-sweep by Misbah gave wicket-keeper Shane Dowrich the opportunity to make amends for two earlier errors in the innings.

But Chase, sent to the hospital on Friday after taking a blow to the hand from Amir, failed to regain his touch and was bowled off his pads by Abbas, three-quarters of an hour into the day's play after facing 155 deliveries and striking five fours.

There was little application from the rest of the West Indies top order as the hosts limped to 73/4 by lunch losing three wickets in the morning session. Misbah and Younis played their last innings of Test careers on Saturday.

Having already lost the wicket of Kieran Powell overnight, the home side suffered two further setbacks inside the first hour of the morning.

Azhar's knock was hardly a highlight reel.

Just as they were beginning to rebuild their innings, Pakistan lost Shan Masood as he was given out lbw off the bowling of Shannon Gabriel for 21.

With just 1 wicket needed for a win, it seemed Gabriel had edged one to Sarfraz Ahmed.

However, Yasir and Amir came together in a 61-run eighth wicket stand to put the game back in Pakistan's favour.
