The last over of the day will be bowled by Benn. Only one run comes from the over. Stumps have been called for and New Zealand lead West Indies by 18 runs. They also have only two wickets left. It will be a battle for them to save the match. West Indies are firmly in the driving seat now. That is it from us for the day’s play. Join us again for all the action from Day Five. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Have a great day!
New Zealand got to their 250 in the 121st over as Craig took a single. Jerome Taylor and Shannon Gabriel bowl in tandem now. Taylor bowls a good length delivery and Craig edges the ball in-between third slip and gully for a four. The West Indies bowlers are trying to mix it up to try and get a wicket. Gabriel bowls a sharp bouncer and Watling has to duck underneath it quickly. Gabriel bowls a low full-toss and Watling guides the ball to deep mid-wicket for a single.
Chris Gayle bowls a loose wide delivery and Craig throws his bat at it. He gets a thick outside edge and the ball races away for a four towards third-man. New Zealand have taken the lead. So, West Indies will have to bat again.
The current period of play has been low on action. Both Watling and Mark Craig have been happy to just let the West Indies bowlers get through the overs.
Southee has gone on a bit of a rampage now. He hits a four, a six and a four off consecutive deliveries bowled by Shannon Gabriel. But Roach gets his second wicket as Southee departs for 15. A good length delivery rose on Southee and the ball went towards Kirk Edwards at extra-cover. He took a magnificent diving catch to his left.
OUT! T Southee 15(12)
Welcome back for the final session on Day Four. Sodhi hits a wide delivery from Jerome Taylor for a four through backward-point. Kemar Roach has been brought back into the attack in the 96th over. He strikes immediately as Sodhi top-edges a wide delivery to Ramdin. Tim Southee is the next batsman in.
OUT! I Sodhi 14(30)
Just one more run has come from the next two overs as tea has been called for on Day Four. New Zealand trail West Indies by 59 runs with four wickets in hand.
Hi everyone. This is Shrikant Shankar and I will be taking over the live updates till the end of the day’s play. Jerome Taylor bowls a maiden in the 85th over. Rutherford then gets two twos off Benn’s over to keep the score ticking along. Taylor then angles one down the leg side. Watling tries to play at it. There is some noise as the ball passes Watling. The West Indies players appeal, but the umpire is not interested. They review, but it comes to nothing. Rutherford edges one from Taylor, but the ball goes in-between second slip and gully for a four. Taylor bowls a good length delivery from round the wicket. Rutherford offers no shot and the ball hits the pads. The West Indies players appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Rutherford reviews, but Hawk-Eye shows that the ball would hit off-stump. So, Rutherford has been dismissed for 13 off 34 deliveries. Ish Sodhi is the next batsman in and he gets off the mark with three runs towards wide long-on.
OUT! H Rutherford 13(34)
Umpire Tucker is not feeling too well out there. He has taken a pill during the drinks break, and was attended to as well. Meanwhile, Sulieman Benn is continuing his marathon spell. Can Watling and Rutherford survive this session? McCullum will be hoping they can.
Taylor and Watling are jogging along, but the worrying news is that some grey clouds have started circling the stadium now. But lot of sunlight to go along with it as well. Benn meanwhile is continuing along. Oh Wait! Shannon Gabriel has got the big wicket of Ross Taylor. Taylor’s impatience has done him in again. Plays an unnecessary shot outside his off-stump, gets a thick edge, and Ramdin does the rest. And Taylor reviews the decision. What a terrible waste of a review! New Zealand five down now.
OUT! Taylor 36(88)
And now we are back with the post-lunch session. West Indies will be hoping to continue their good work, whereas New Zealand will be hoping Taylor and Watling can string a meaningful partnership. And the Kiwis have made a comparatively better start to this session than the previous one, scoring two boundaries already. They need to show some intent.
So Ross Taylor decides to go after matters here. And that too, in the last over before lunch. He hits Roach for two consecutive fours. But overall, it has been a very good session for the West Indies, who have scalped three wickets and the Kiwis are now four down on a fourth day pitch which is definitely doing something for the spinner. It will be a very crucial next session for the visitors. See you after lunch.
West Indies have got another wicket. And another set batsmen from last night. Kane Williamson falls to some lovely balling from Roach. It bounced, it was slightly away from Williamson who hesitantly nudged at it, and Ramdin safely pouched the edge. New Zealand have to be careful here, or they roll towards a defeat. They are still over a 100 away from gaining the lead again. And Neesham and Taylor will have to keep their eyes open against the rising demons in the pitch now. It is turning for Benn, and we have seen some wicked bounce. West Indies should have had two spinners for this track. It can hurt them.
Oh Wait! Benn has got another wicket. And it’s a spectacular return catch from the spinner.
OUT! Williamson 52(178), Neesham 7(15)
And West Indies have got the first wicket of the day. They need eight more now. Suliamen Benn got sharp turn and bounce on that delivery which pitched on the rough and rose towards Latham’s chest. It took a slice of his glove and he walks. Ross Taylor is the new man in. West Indies have been very disciplined so far, hardly giving away any loose deliveries.
OUT! Latham 36(138)
After delay in pitch preparations delayed the start of play in the day, New Zealand have started off in a very quite fashion, scoring just five runs of the first seven overs of the day. West Indies, being so far ahead at this stage, were visibly upset by the delay but have started well on Day Four. Jerome Taylor and Suliamen Benn have kept things quite with their combination of pace and spin. In fact, the two batsmen have been able to rotate strike just twice so far in the day.

Hello and welcome to the live updates of Day four of the second Test between West Indies and New Zealand at the Port of Spain. After three days of play in this Test, New Zealand are placed at 73 for the loss of one wicket in their second innings, trailing West Indies by 166 runs.

Tom Latham and Kane Williamson were quite cautious for the whole of the post-tea session on Day Three at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad. New Zealand only lost one wicket, that of captain Brendon McCullum for three in the session.

Jerome Taylor took the wicket of McCullum soon after tea on Day Three. West Indies were earlier bowled out for 460 in their first innings. That gave them a 239-run lead as New Zealand were bundled out for 221 in their first innings. Latham was batting on 30 and Williamson was on 38 at the close of play. The current partnership is worth 64 runs for the second wicket.
