West Indies were 442 for six at stumps on the third day of the first test against New Zealand in Antigua on Friday, leading by 91 runs.

Earlier, Chris Gayle marked his return to five-day cricket by hitting 150.

Gayle, who was playing his first test for more than 18 months due to his stand-off with the West Indies Cricket Board following comments he made about officials in a radio interview, smacked 17 boundaries and four sixes as he made his mark in a 206-ball inning before falling to the bowling of Kane Williamson.

West Indies 442 for 6 (Gayle 150, Powell 134, Fudadin 55, Deonarine 54*) lead New Zealand 351 by 91 runs
