Centuries from opener Chris Gayle and the veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul carried the West Indies to 381 for eight - for a lead of 206 - in response to Zimbabwe's 175 all out on day two of the second Test at Windsor Park in Dominica on Thursday.
Spinner Shane Shillingford continued his rich stretch of form with another five-wicket haul, as the West Indies resigned Zimbabwe to a mere 175 all out - and responded with a promising 114 for two - on day one of the second Test at Windsor Park in Dominica on Wednesday.
Opportunity knocks for an unprecedented - since 1988, at least - six consecutive Test victories for the West Indies, and they couldn't have asked for easier opposition to achieve the feat against.
A second-innings six-for from Shane Shillingford capped the West Indies' nine-wicket victory over Zimbabwe on day-three of the first Test at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados on Friday.
Half-centuries from all-rounder Marlon Samuels, wicketkeeper-batsman Denesh Ramdin and captain Darren Sammy - and three early second-innings wickets - afforded the West Indies a healthy advantage on day two of the first Test against Zimbabwe at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados on Wednesday.
