Roston Chase took a career-best eight wickets as the West Indies pummeled England by 381 runs on the fourth day of the first Test in Barbados.

Starting off the day on 56/0, England added 29 runs to their overnight score before opener Keaton Jennings was caught by West Indies captain Jason Holder at slip off the bowling of Alzarri Joseph for 14.

Rory Burns and Jonny Bairstow added 49 runs to the score before Burns was clean bowled by Chase for a career-best 84, which came off 133 balls and included 15 boundaries.

Bairstow went on to score 30 before he was caught behind off the bowling of Shannon Gabriel.

Chase took over from that point as he sliced through England’s middle and lower order, starting with the prized wicket of England skipper Joe Root, who was caught by Darren Bravo at slip for 22.

Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler were the only other batsmen to make some sort of contribution as they scored 34 and 26 respectively.

With none of England’s other batsmen having an impact, the tourists were bowled out for 246.

Chase was the pick of the bowlers with eight wickets, while Joseph and Gabriel claimed one wicket each.

Holder was named Man of the Match for his career-best knock of 202 not out in the second innings.
