West Indies out for 221, New Zealand lead by 152

11 December 2017

The West Indies believe they gifted New Zealand at least 30 runs with an ineffectual spell at the start of the day after winning the toss and bowling in accommodating conditions.

In that match, the West Indies were 59-0 in their first innings before being bowled out for 134 and 257-3 in their second innings before being dismissed for 319. Reifer, on test debut, played a bold late hand, defying the New Zealand bowlers for 107 minutes.

The loss of Shai Hope (28), Roston Chase (12), Sunil Ambris (2) and Brathwaite after the rain break Sunday followed that pattern.

Former English batsman, Denis Compton, owns the most number of hit-wicket dismissals (5) in Tests while Ambris has taken the joint-third position on the unwanted list in a very short span of time.

Remember that West Indian batsman that stepped on his stumps with his first ball in Test cricket?

Hetmyer fell shortly before the delay, Boult had taken a fine diving return catch. Television replays, which were not requested by the batting side, hinted that despite Southee's athletic effort the ball might in fact just have touched the ground.

After progressing to 84 against the West Indies off 157 deliveries, Raval sent an edge from Shannon Gabriel through to wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich. The opening partnership between Brathwaite and Powell.

New Zealand: Tom Latham, Jeet Raval, Kane Williamson (captain), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell, Mitchell Santner, Colin de Grandhomme, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Trent Boult.

New Zealand wasted no time finishing the West Indies first innings off at Seddon Park today.

Despite losing Wagner and Blundell, Boult and Southee refused to go down without a fight and amassed a 61-run partnership before New Zealand were bowled out for 373 when Southee was caught and bowled by Roach for 31. "We put on some valuable runs there at the end".
