New Zealand will be looking to assert their dominance over West Indies in the second Test in Wellington on Day Three. At stumps on Day Two, West Indies were at 158 for four, trailing New Zealand’s 441 by 283 runs.

 

Marlon Samuels is batting on 50 and Narsingh Deonarine is batting on 11. Corey Anderson has taken two wickets while Trent Boult and Tim Southee have taken two wickets-a-piece.

 

New Zealand all-rounder Anderson, in only his fourth Test, made the crucial breakthroughs for his team, removing first Test double centurion Darren Bravo for four and Kirk Edwards for 55.

 

The West Indies made a positive start as Edwards and Kieran Powell progressed to 46 with New Zealand new-ball partners Boult and Southee moving the ball around and finding plenty to appeal about but nothing that impressed the umpires.

 

Southee was eventually rewarded with an LBW decision against Powell on 21 while Boult came back in his second spell to remove Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

 

Bravo, unable to reproduce his marathon innings of the first Test, faced 12 balls before he edged Anderson to second slip Peter Fulton.

 

Edwards, who had looked assured on his way to a half century, was undone by a full Anderson delivery which he tried to turn to the leg side but sent a leading edge to Hamish Rutherford at cover.

 

Anderson, who has figures of two for 20, was again in the play to remove Chanderpaul for six when he took a fine catch at cover point.

 

New Zealand resumed the day at 307 for six and cracked a rollicking 134 runs to be all out on the stroke of lunch.

 

It was an impressive total on a wicket rated favourable to the quick bowlers, although the West Indies were guilty of too many short, wide, deliveries.

 

Wicketkeeper BJ Watling was the mainstay of the late attack which ended when he was removed for 65. Watling and Southee opened the day with 27 runs in 26 balls before Southee was dismissed, caught at deep square leg for 21.

 

Ish Sodhi chimed in with 27 off 35 balls in a cameo peppered with quick singles before he was caught behind off Tino Best who was quickly to go from hero to villain.

 

Best removed Neil Wagner with his next ball to be on a hat-trick only for Boult to crush those hopes.

 

He not only avoided the hat-trick but in the next over he skied a Shane Shillingford delivery, which Best spilled over the ropes, turning a chance to wrap up the innings into a six.

 

Boult was particularly severe on Shillingford, belting 14 off one over, as he and Watling set a record 10th-wicket partnership for New Zealand against the West Indies of 58. Best was the most successful of the West Indies bowlers, with four for 110.

 

The day’s play was twice disrupted by rain, with the start delayed by 75 minutes and the entire middle session washed out.

 

Brief scores:

 

New Zealand 441 (Kane Williamson 45, Ross Taylor 129, BJ Watling 65; Tino Best 2 for 110, Shannon Gabriel 2 for 86) lead West Indies 158 for 4 (Kirk Edwards 55, Marlon Samuels 50*; Corey Anderson 2 for 20) by 238 runs.
