Tagenarine Chanderpaul has boosted his chances of a Test debut against Australia by producing a hard-fought century against the Prime Minister’s XI.

Chanderpaul, son of West Indies great Shivnarine, scored 119 off 293 balls on Thursday to lift his side to 234-7 at stumps on day two of the pink-ball match in Canberra. The PM’s XI made 322 in their first innings, leaving the four-day clash delicately balanced.

Chanderpaul held the innings together, striking 13 fours and one six on the way to posting triple figures, as the West Indies slipped after an opening stand of 94.

Earlier, the PM XI added a further 25 runs to their overnight score of 297-9 with paceman Alzarri Joseph picking up 4-65, and spinner Roston Chase 2-72.
