All-rounder Roston Chase led the fightback as West Indies reached 319-6 in their second innings at tea on the fifth and final day’s play of the second Test match versus India at Sabina Park.
Chase is unbeaten on 112 – his first Test hundred – while Captain Jason Holder is on 21.
After taking 5-121 when India batted, Chase has become only the fourth West Indian to take five wickets in an innings and score a century in the same Test. Previous players to do so were Denis Atkinson, Collie Smith and Garfield Sobers — on two occasions.
Scores: West Indies 196 (52.3 overs) & 319-6 (85 overs); India 500-9 declared (171.1 overs).
Resuming this morning on 48-4, the West Indies lost only one wicket in the morning session as Jermaine Blackwood fell for 63. He and Chase added 93 runs for the fifth wicket.
The West Indians were just as determined in the post lunch session, losing only the wicket of Shane Dowrich (74), who was unfortunately given out leg before wicket though replays showed the ball had hit his bat first. Chase and Dowrich combined for 144 runs for the sixth wicket.
West Indies trail 0-1 in the four-match series after losing by an innings and 92 runs in Antigua a week ago.
