KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Roston Chase starred with the ball and the bat to power West Indies to a convincing win over Afghanistaninfo-icon in the first One-Day International (ODI).

The lanky all-rounder smashed a breezy 94 -- his second half-century and highest ODI score -- after taking two wickets in the opener at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.

Chase, who he hit 11 boundaries and played 115 balls, was lent solid support from Shai Hope, according to a media report. 

Hope remained unbeaten at 77, including five boundaries. The pair put on a record partnership of 163 runs for the third wicket.

“The two guys showed the way – Hope and Chase. Both of them are class batsmen, kudos to them for batting well and getting us victory,” the winning skipper said in a post-match comment.

Nicholas Pooran stroked the winning runs to see the visitors trouncing Afghanistan by seven wickets.

Batting first, Afghanistan posted 194 after a middle order collapse. Rahmat Shah chipped in with 61 and Ikram Alikhel 58. Asghar Afghan contributed 35.
