Young Prithvi Shaw's attacking style of batsmanship is allowing the senior Indian players to bat freely and without pressure, reckons West Indies all-rounder Roston Chase.

Opener Shaw flayed the Caribbean attack during his 52-ball-70 on Day Two of the second Test to give India a flying start. Asked about the impact of his style, Chase said, "I think they look up to him to give them that good start and the other guys, more mature guys, just come in and knock it around and look to take ones and twos.

"I just think that was their strategy, to really go hard with the young guy because that is his natural game, and make it easier for the other guys coming in after him," said the in-form West Indian. Chase was happy to get to a personal milestone as he struck his maiden century (106) abroad.
