On the first day, the wicket at Port of Spain offered a bit of help for all types of bowlers. Jerome Taylor took advantage of the ball stopping a bit on the batsmen by taking four key wickets. He was well supported by others in the bowling line-up. For New Zealand, the likes of Tom Latham, Ross Taylor and company played well. But none of them were able to get a big score on the board.
