Lucknow: All-rounder Roston Chase grabbed 2-31 with his offspin bowling Wednesday to help the West Indies record a seven-wicket win over Afghanistan in a one-day international.
Chase scored 94 off 115 balls and opener Shai Hope made an unbeaten 77 off 133 balls to guide West Indies to 197-3 in 46.3 overs.
Both batsmen shared a 163-run third-wicket partnership and neutralized the three-pronged Afghanistan spin attack as leg-spinner Rashid Khan couldn't get a wicket and conceded 43 runs off his 10 overs.
Chase tried to reach his maiden ODI century but was clean bowled in the 44th over.
Afghanistan, after being put in to bat, wasted a solid century-stand between Rahmat Shah (61) and Ikram Alikhil (58) to get bowled out for 194 with more than four overs to spare.
The bizarre run out of Alikhil in the 27th over triggered the collapse while Chase grabbed the wickets of Shah and Najibullah Zadran.
Afghanistan is hosting the West Indies in this northern Indian city for three ODIs, three T20s and a one-off test.
