WI in command after Chase, Hope hundreds

Roston Chase stroked an unbeaten hundred

DERBY, England, CMC – Unbeaten hundreds by Roston Chase and Shai Hope, along with an incisive bowling effort spearheaded by captain Jason Holder, put West Indies in command of their three-day match against English County Derbyshire here Saturday.

Playing on the second day of the day/night contest at Derbyshire County Ground, West Indies amassed 427 for three declared with Chase stroking 110 not out and Hope, 107 not out.

The hosts then crumbled for 181 all out as Holder sliced through the innings with three for 48 while Roston Chase (2-5), Kemar Roach (2-31) and Shannon Gabriel (2-64) all claimed two wickets each.

Calum Brodrick top-scored 52 and Ben Slater got 39 but Derbyshire lost wickets steadily and never recovered.

In their second turn at the crease, West Indies motored to 60 for one with left-handed opener Kieran Powell unbeaten on 41.

Entering Sunday’s final day, the Caribbean side lead by 306 runs and are in a great position to force a morale-boosting victory ahead of next Thursday’s start of the opening Test against England.

Resuming the day on 340 for three, the Windies’ position was further strengthened by Chase and Hope who extended their unbroken fourth wicket partnership to 196. Hope, resuming on 69, struck 16 fours and faced 218 deliveries while Chase, unbeaten on 62 at the start, made an up tempo hundred with an innings requiring 113 balls and 18 fours.

Derbyshire then cruised to 78 for one after Slater and Thomas Wood (15) put on 53 for the second wicket.

However, six wickets tumbled for 37 runs to leave them struggling on 115 for seven before Brodrick anchored a 55-run eighth wicket stand with captain Tony Palladino (18) to prop up the innings.

All told, Brodrick faced 91 deliveries and counted seven boundaries.

Kraigg Brathwaite then failed again, falling for 11 but Powell picked up where he left off in the first innings with nine fours in an entertaining 43-ball knock.
