ROSEAU – Veteran left-hander Shivnarine Chanderpaul fashioned his 28th Test century and climbed to eighth on the all-time list of run-scorers, while Chris Gayle posted his 15th Test hundred as West Indies got a vice-grip on the second Test against Zimbabwe yesterday.
At the close of the second day at Windsor Park, West Indies had reached an imposing 382 for eight, a lead of 206 runs heading into today’s third day.
The 38-year-old Chanderpaul made 108, an innings that propelled him past Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardene on the all-time list with 10 830 runs in his 149th Test.
He faced 284 balls and struck 13 fours to record his second century at the venue and his first against the African side.
Gayle, meanwhile, struck 101 from 145 balls with 12 fours and one six to record his second century against Zimbabwe. (CMC)
