Gayle 150 lifts West Indies
Chris Gayle slammed 150 on his return to Test cricket on Day 3 of the first Test against New Zealand at Antigua on Friday.
Carrying on from his overnight score of 85* on Day 2, Gayle hit a six to move into the nineties and another one to take him to 97 to 103 early on Day 3. A brief rain interruption immediately after he reached his ton didn’t unsettle him. He was dropped on 142* off Kane Williamson by keeper Kruger van Wyk and played for Lunch after that.
Williamson however had him when play resumed after Lunch, this time caught at long off by Brendon McCullum for 150 (206b, 17x4, 4x6). West Indies ended the day on 442/6, leading New Zealand by 91 runs.
