Gros-Islet. St Lucia: Shivnarine Chanderpaul's 30th Test century put the West Indies firmly on course to win the second Test with Bangladesh as the tourists were struggling on 55-2 at lunch in their second innings chasing an unlikely target of 489 on the fourth day of the match at Beausejour Stadium on Tuesday.

Following unbeaten innings of 85 and 84 previously in the series, 40-year-old Chanderpaul's unbeaten 101, together with 66 not out from Jermaine Blackwood, allowed home captain Denesh Ramdin to close his side's innings on 269 for four after 45 minutes' play.

Chanderpaul is only the second West Indian, after former captain Clive Lloyd against Australia in 1984, to score a Test century aged 40 or more.
