A tall offspin-bowling allrounder from Barbados, Roston Chase won a place in West Indies' Test team after strong showings with bat and ball in the 2015-16 Professional Cricket League. He scored 710 runs in ten matches at an average of 59.16, bowled more than he ever had in the past, and took 23 wickets at an average of 17.26 (including twin five-fors in a match against Guyana).
Slotted in at No. 6 for West Indies' home series against India in 2016, Chase did not take long to show he belonged. In his second Test, at Sabina Park, he became only the fourth West Indian, after Denis Atkinson, Collie Smith and Garry Sobers, to take a five-wicket haul and score a hundred in a Test; he bowled more overs than anyone else in India's only innings to finish with 5 for 121, and batted through all of the fifth day to score an unbeaten 137 and lead his side to an improbable draw. He pulled off that feat again in 2017 against Pakistan in Roseau, where he made an unbeaten 101, exactly half of his team's total in the innings, but they failed to chase down a tough 304. The match before, he had made another hundred, this time in a West Indies win.
At the start of 2019, Chase took an eight-for and made 54 in a massive win over England in Barbados. He hit a rough patch batting-wise in Tests in the middle of that year, but nearly made his first ODI hundred in November - he ran out of deliveries and finished on 94 as West Indies chased 195.
In T20, unlike many of his bigger-hitting West Indies counterparts, Chase has stayed close to home, playing only in the CPL, and mostly for St Lucia Kings there, including in two finals.
