On a day when the match came alive, Pakistan declared at 174 for eight wickets in their second innings, setting West Indies a victory target of 304 runs at Windsor Park in Roseau on the island of Dominica. And they almost did, only for Yasir Shah to dismiss the last batsman Shannon Gabriel towards the end and give Pakistan their first Test series win in West Indies.
Wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich was 20 not out at the close, with patient captain Jason Holder on 11 off 42 balls including a lofty six over long-off in the final over, delivered by leg-spinner Yasir Shah.
In the end he completed his third Test century but was left helpless at the non-strikers 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.
Former Pakistan captain Younis Khan is set to join the Afghanistan national team as coach after he retires from worldwide cricket at the end of the third Test against the West Indies, said Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) chairman.
A dramatic finish at Dominica saw Pakistan win the Test off the penultimate over of Day 5 to send off their legendary batsmen, Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq with a series win.
Chase was left stranded on 101 off 239 balls, which included 12 boundaries and a six.
The captain also inspired Pakistan to the top of the ICC Test team rankings for the first time in history. The visitors clinched the three-match series 2-1.
"I am really happy for this team, all the guys here, the way they gave me and Younis send-offs", he added.
The maturity and wisdom Younus and Misbah brought to the team must also be recognised, not with regard to their ages but the attitude and patience that earned the team accolades and respect over the past years.
Reflecting on the same, Chase said he was glad to average more than 100 in the series against a quality attack, adding that he is hoping to display a similar kind of performance in the upcoming series against England. It was a very fine journey with him in the middle, sharing a lot of partnerships, and I loved every moment of that.
Troubled again by Shah operating round the wicket, Chase was given out on 23, caught at slip by Younis Khan as he swung at the leg-spinner.
Congratulating Misbah and Younis on their fantastic careers, former Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawardena wished the Pakistan duo a great future ahead.
"I might have just forgotten names but whoever worked with me, whoever played with me, I enjoyed that and I think they have made a contribution in my life and career. We should do this, and if others start it up, then I will stand by them for sure", said the 39-year-and-118-Test-old Younis, the first to enter the 10,000-run club for Pakistan.
