By Simon Hill By Simon HillsYeronga scored a match-high 23 runs in the first innings, including a sensational four-wicket haul that saw him bag his third century and the fourth of his career.
The New Zealand batsman is the first player to bag three centuries in one innings in the Test history, surpassing former New Zealand captain Peter Handscomb (18).
He is also the second Test player to score three centuries at the MCG, following Michael Hussey (1942-45) and Ian Botham (1941-42).
The 23-year-old was dismissed early in the second over, and his pace and technique were crucial as New Zealand thrashed India in the opening two games.
His partnership with Andrew Strauss was brilliant as the pair were both prolific scorers and both played with great gusto in the middle overs.
Strauss was not given a warm welcome by the Indian bowlers and was dismissed in the sixth over after just two balls.
The second innings was a different story for the West Indian opener.
He had a couple of wickets and a duck before his second spell was broken.
The West Indian attack was not in sync and the tourists did not seem to care, and were rewarded with a duck when they were down to 14 for four.
Yerongas batting, which featured both spinners, showed a great batting partnership as he was able to get his wickets while also bowling a few boundary-scoring shots.
After the first over, he bowled a pair of fours to dismiss the second spinner.
A good partnership was established between Yeronga and Strauss, who were able to bring down the wickets of the Indian spinner as he made some brilliant decisions.
Yerongs batting and his partnership with Strauss were key to the win.
On the second day, the pair had to work hard to maintain their partnership.
The West Indians were not able to score in the final over as they were not in control of the game, which led to a few of their runs being bowled over the line.
However, they were able keep their wickets to a minimum in the chase and managed to score four in the last over.
It was a good effort from the pair.
Strauss had a good day and was impressed by the pace and timing of Yerongs bowling, particularly his ability to make quick, sharp deliveries at his own pace.
This was the best performance from Yeroga in his last Test, as he scored his three centuries.
“I think there is still room for him to grow,” Strauss said.
“I am excited for him.”
We had a really good day, we did really well.
We had some really good bowling and it was good to see Yeroolang’s confidence up.
“Yerongo also made a few important runs in his innings, as the West Indians managed to control the chase to the point where he was in the thick of it.
For the most part, the West Indies got away with their chase and kept their wicket.
Yerdong’s two centuries were his best in Test cricket, with four others coming at the SCG, including the first of his Test career.
There is little doubt that Yerdong will make a name for himself in Test matches again soon, and he is now the leading scorer in Test history with six centuries.
Yerionga has also enjoyed a good first season in the IPL, and has already scored 20 fours in his debut.
Both the West India and India teams were keen on Yerongo and have been chasing him ever since.
In his innings against New Zealand, he made four boundaries, including an unbeaten six-wickets, to take the scores to 0-8.
However, Yerogans bowling was much better than his previous innings and he made his maiden century in a Test.
Warrick has been trying to recruit Yerogi as a future international batsman, but Yerogo was the only batsman to impress in the recent ODIs.
The 27-year old will now be looking to improve on his Test tally of six centuries from the IPLS to make the grade in the one-day internationals, and hopefully make his debut against Australia.
Yerbong will play in his first ever ODI against New South Wales at the Adelaide Oval on Friday.
