Hope's innings helped West Indies bat the entire day at Kensington Oval to reach 264 for nine and build a lead of 183 runs heading into today's final day. West Indies got off to a awful start, having added only one run to their overnight score when Shimron Hetmyer, who had looked convincing on the third evening, was dismissed by Mohammad Amir.
Kraigg Brathwaite and Hope stabilised the innings with a 56-run partnership before Brathwaite was dismissed by Yasir for 43.
On a deteriorating pitch, Pakistan's final target may still be a challenging one as they seek the historic win which would also give them a first-ever Test series triumph in the Caribbean.
Pakistan legspinner Yasir Shah did the damage late on day four, claiming his 10th five-wicket haul to finish the day with 6-90.
Pakistan is nearly on the verge of making a history by thrashing West Indies in a bilateral Test series in the Caribbean, a victory the South Asian Country has been waiting for since 1957-58. Younis dived to his right with agility and reflexes that belied his age, holding on to a splendid one-handed catch that could end up being as crucial as any runs he scores this game. But all of a sudden, Hope sought to cover drive a flighted Yasir delivery through the air, perfectly picking out Azhar Ali at cover.More news: Thousands Welcome Freed Ex-PM Haradinaj in Kosovo
That disappointment was replaced by even more jubilation in the West Indies camp though, as Jason Holder replaced Gabriel and immediately earned the prized scalp of Younis Khan.
Hope's departure precipitated a collapse, with Vishaul Singh falling to the next ball, bowled by paceman Mohammad Abbas for 32.
Hope and Roston Chase kept the runs flowing with a 58-run stand before Chase was caught and bowled by Yasir for 23.
Hope was "not pleased" about missing out on his maiden Test century but he led West Indies from 41 for 2 past 200 by batting over five hours for his 90.
