ROSEAU – West Indies were once again staring at a possible defeat after Adam Voges defied a career-best haul from leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo to become the 20th Australian to score a century on Test debut, and give the visitors a vice grip on the second cricket Test here yesterday.

The 35-year-old right-hander carved out a superb, unbeaten 130 that rescued Australia from peril at 126 for six and steered them to 318 in their first innings at Windsor Park.

At the close, West Indies were already reeling in their second innings at 25 for two, losing both openers Shai Hope (2) and Kraigg Brathwaite (15), to be 145 runs adrift.
