Despite losing two early wickets New Zealand remain on top in their first Test match played against the West Indies at Kingston, Jamaica. New Zealand amassed a huge total of 508 for seven declared on the back of centuries from Jimmy Neesham and Kane Williamson. Their bowlers led by Tim Southee then bowled out West Indies for a paltry score on what has been a flat deck. Catch Live Scorecard of the West Indies vs New Zealand 1st Test here

 

In the second innings though, New Zealand have lost two wickets. However, it has to be said that they already have a big lead and will look to force the pace on the third day as they need time to bowl out their opponents cheaply. For West Indies, Chanderpaul, calmly went about his business in typical fashion in vintage style. He was unperturbed by the mayhem at the other end and brought up his 63rd half-century. With that, the 39-year old Guyanese joins the top five list of maximum number half-centuries in Test cricket. Catch the live blog of the match here
