Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Kemar Roach helped the West Indies formalize a five-wicket victory in the second Digicel Test in Antigua Sunday.

Chanderpaul was not out on 43 and Roach made 41, as the Windies completed their chase of 206 for victory on the fourth day.

Chanderpaul and Roach put on 70 for the fifth wicket to keep the West Indies on track for the victory.

Chanderpaul struck just one boundary from 101 balls in 148 minutes and Roach hit four fours from 60 balls in 80 balls.

The result gave the Windies a 2-0 series victory, following a nine-wicket victory in the first Test which ended last Monday in Antigua.
