New Zealand have reached a score of 159 for three at tea on Day One of the second Test against West Indies at Trinidad and Tobago. New Zealand lost the wicket of Tom Latham late in the session for 82 runs. Kemar Roach was the bowler to get the wicket of Latham. Ross Taylor is batting on 17 and Brendon McCullum is on four.

The session started with New Zealand at 86 for one. Latham was batting on 51 and Kane Williamson was on 23. The duo added a total of 104 runs for the second wicket. Their partnership came at a run-rate of 3.01. Williamson was the one who did most of the scoring with Latham playing second fiddle.

Williamson was nearing his half-century when he hooked a bouncer from Shannon Gabriel towards fine-leg. Substitute fielder Jason Holder took the catch. Williamson was out for 42 off 104 deliveries with five fours. Taylor joined Latham in the middle. Latham started to score more fours as he neared a century.

But it wasn’t to be for him as he got a thick edge to a wide delivery from Roach towards gully. Sulieman Benn took a good catch. Latham had to depart for 82 off 163 deliveries. He struck 10 fours in his innings. McCullum was the next batsman and he remained unbeaten till tea with Taylor.
