When India gave West Indies a lead of 304 runs in the second test match, everyone thought that this game will be in the favour of India like the previous one but West Indies emerged from the dead and managed to save the test. With the help of Roston Chase, they managed to draw the second test match against India.
The 5th day of the second test match started off dangerously for West Indies but Roston Chase helped the team to fight back as he played a smashing knock of unbeaten 137 runs. On the 4th day of the second test match, West Indies was four-wicket down and they needed a miracle to save the test. Jermaine Blackwood and Chase partnered for 94 runs on the 5th day and that embellished the foundation of fighting back for West Indies.
Chase was batting with immense confidence and the player scripted history with his blazing innings. After Blackwood got dismissed Dowrich played with Chase on the other end and made a so much needed priceless partnership of 74 runs.
After Dowrich, skipper Jason Holder came and he didn’t provide any room for error as he carried his team over the line with Chase. Indian bowlers were not making it easy for West Indies but Chase’s sheer dedication and stunning batting skills turned the match upside down.
After the results, the twitter went bizarre as many cricketers hailed Chase for his brilliant knock and praised him for his effort.
Chase surely knew how to hold up to the meaning of his name. Check out some of the tweets here:
West Indies are surprising a few people (myself included!). What a day for Roston Chase!
