Roseau, Dominica: Contrasting centuries by Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Chris Gayle tightened West Indies' grip over Zimbabwe on the second day of the second and final Test at Windsor Park on Thursday.

They will be pushing to complete another comprehensive victory with two days to spare - as achieved the previous week in Barbados - to sweep the brief series 2-0 and extend their Test match winning streak to six.
