However, Chase also said he took some time to settle down against the spin and pace attack. He moreover added he worked hard with the coaches after the first Test, which saw India winning the game by an innings and 272 runs.

 

“I just took my time, more than what I did in the first game where I thought I just went away from my strengths and tried to over-hit the ball which is not necessary on outfields like the ones you get here. I was working hard with my coaches, and as I said in the press conference, it is about believing in the processes and in your game, and the results would come. And I thought the wickets here would spin a lot more, but they are really good. [On tomorrow’s plan] We will have our discussions in the huddle and then decide” Roston Chase said.

Furthermore, Roston Chase proved his power, as he added 69 runs with Shane Dowrich for the sixth wicket as well. Once the latter got dismissed, skipper Jason Holder gave Chase good company before Umesh Yadav nipped him out for 52 before stumps.

Meanwhile, Roston Chase is still unbeaten on 98, and it remains to be seen if he can push the Windies past the 350-run mark on day two in the second Test match.
