Cool Chase: One match at a time

KINGSTON – Batting hero Roston Chase says he, along with a few teammates, had plotted the strategy on the previous night, on how to draw the second Test against India on Wednesday’s critical final day at Sabina Park.

In a discussion on Tuesday night with wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich and reserve player Carlos Brathwaite, Chase said it had been determined then that either he, or Dowrich, of the specialist batsmen remaining, would need to reach triple figures in order to save the game.

West Indies began the day on 48 for four in their second innings – still requiring 256 runs to avoid an innings defeat – and batted all day to reach 388 for six and force a stalemate.

Chase led the way with a superb unbeaten 137 – his maiden Test hundred in only his second game – while Dowrich stroked 74 and captain Jason Holder, an unbeaten 64. (CMC)
