West Indies host New Zealand for a three-Test series, with the first one having undergone on Sunday at Kingston, Jamaica. Batting first, New Zealand enjoyed the upper hand for the most parts of the first day of the first Test. Their in-form batsman, Kane Williamson piled up a wonderful century and also became the youngest New Zealander to cross the 2000-run mark in Tests.

He was ably supported by Tom Latham, who struck a patient 83. New Zealand ended the first day at 240 for the loss of just two wickets, and will be looking to continue in their position of strength, and pile up a huge first innings total. The West Indies looked timid and sparkless on the first day. Their bowlers hardly troubled the Kiwi batsmen, who looked solid and composed in the centre. Catch the live blog of the match here

 

With a ton-up Williamson and a good-looking Ross Taylor in the middle, the Windies will have to produce an inspired show on Day Two morning to bring parity back into the contest.
