New Zealand will be aiming to pile on more runs when they resume the second day’s play at 307 for six. Ross Taylor, the former skipper, who scored an unbeaten double century in the series opener, was dismissed shortly before close of play at Wellington’s Basin Reserve for 129 when Shane Shillingford pulled off a diving catch.
West Indies managed to escape a defeat in the first Test at Dunedin. However, they will have to prevent the hosts from setting an imposing first innings total.
In conditions that favoured the bowlers, the 29-year-old Taylor forged half-century partnerships with Kane Williamson, Brendon McCullum and Corey Anderson to swing the match New Zealand’s way, taking the sting out of the second new ball with BJ Watling.
New Zealand 307 for 6 (Kane Williamson 45, Ross Taylor 129; Tino Best 2 for 66) vs West Indies.
