ROACH PUTS THE CHAINS IN MOTIONMonday 30th July 2012
Kemar Roach put the chains in motion before Chris Gayle coolly navigated West Indies to a nine-wicket victory over New Zealand in the first Digicel Test on Sunday here.
Roach snared 5-60 from 23.2 overs, as New Zealand were bowled out for 272 in their second innings about 45 minutes before tea on the final day.
Gayle, a century-maker in the first innings, then gathered a typically authoritative, unbeaten 64, becoming the first West Indies batsman to score 1,000 runs against the Black Caps in Tests, as the home team confidently chased down 102 for victory.
The result gave West Indies a 1-0 lead in the series.
