ANTIGUA: An outstanding opening stand of 254 from Chris Gayle (150) and Kieran Powell (134) helped West Indies build a 91-run lead over New Zealand after the third day of the first Test on Friday.
The Caribbean side were 442-6 at the close. The home side resumed on 145-0. Gayle’s 14th Test Century ton came in his first Test innings in 19 months and was the perfect reminder of just what West Indies have been missing during his absence.
Powell took over after reaching his maiden Test century — the first time since 1999 that both West Indies openers made a century in the same innings.
