Wednesday 08th February 2023 05:51 EST

Tagenarine Chanderpaul has emulated his father, Shivnarine, and scored a Test century for West Indies as they made 221 without loss on the second day of a rain interrupted match against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo. Tagenarine finished the day on 101 not out, with his partner Kraigg Brathwaite making 116. In reaching three figures Tagenarine became the first opener other than Brathwaite to make a Test century for West Indies since Chris Gayle in 2013. Tagenarine, 26, is playing only his third Test and joins a relatively short list of fathers and sons to have both scored Test centuries - others include Chris and Stuart Broad and Walter and Richard Hadlee.
