PORT OF SPAIN: A gritty unbroken stand of 146 between Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Brendan Nash took West Indies to 349-4, 197 behind after three days of the final Test.
Resuming 454 adrift at 92-1, they lost run machine Ramnaresh Sarwan (14) who was debutant Amjad Khan's maiden scalp.
Chris Gayle reached his 10th Test ton with a quick single but in doing so injured his hamstring and retired hurt.
The left-handers batted for 52 overs to avoid the follow-on and further dent England hopes of saving the series.
When the fourth West Indies wicket went down, which was perhaps effectively the fifth given Gayle's serious-looking injury, 144 runs were needed to save the follow-on.
Nash had his moments of fortune, and was dropped on 19, but recorded his fourth Test fifty and his partnership with Chanderpaul, who now has 53 half centuries, blunted England's day which began well with two wickets in the opening hour.
Daren Powell, the nightwatchman who defied them for more than two hours in the third Test at the Antigua Recreation Ground, lasted only 14 balls for his duck.
Sarwan, who began the innings with a series average of 149, having made two centuries and a 291, was dropped off Monty Panesar on 12.
Once again England will be left with the difficult decision of when to declare when they bat again - but first they have to dislodge the left-handed limpets.
