Meanwhile, Chase completed his fourth Test century as Windies posted 311 runs in the final Test. Following that, Law shared high praise on Roston Chase stating that he likes playing Indian style of bowling.

“He’s a quality player. He has been a bit quiet since England and Zimbabwe. He has had reasonable success there, but since then, by his own standards, he has been a bit quiet,” Stuart Law said. “He got a hundred in the series against India two years back, and he obviously likes playing their type of bowling,” he added.

Roston Chase then anchored two critical stands, adding 69 for the sixth wicket with wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich (30) and a further 104 for the seventh with captain Jason Holder (52). Chase, who eventually finished on 106, hardly put a foot wrong against the Indian spin attack.

Furthermore, Stuart Law said this was because he knows how to play slow bowlers in the Caribbean.

I think he understands spin. They face a lot of spin back in the Caribbean in domestic cricket,” Law explained. “He has a long reach and he takes half a stride and is there to the length of the crease. He used that to his advantage, [and] he’s a clean striker of the ball,” Stuart Law concluded.

Roston Chase has played 24 Tests since making his debut two years ago against India in the Caribbean and has emerged as one of the side’s leading batsmen.
