New Zealand will aim to make early inroads in the first session of the third day’s play in the second Test against the West Indies. The hosts resume their first essay at 310 for five with a crucial 89-run lead at the Port of Spain. Catch Live Scorecard of the third day’s play between the West Indies and New Zealand here.

 

On the second day of the second Test, opener Kraigg Brathwaite hit his maiden Test hundred and Darren Bravo his sixth, as West Indies dominated the second day of the second cricket Test against New Zealand.  Brathwaite fell late in the day for 129 while Bravo scored a characteristically shot-filled 109, his first century on the Caribbean soil and appropriately coming before his home crowd, IANS reported.

 

The pair put on 182 for the second wicket, a partnership that deflated the Black Caps and forced them to toil without success throughout most of the evening sessions on another flat surface. Brathwaite, who replaced the out-of-form Kieran Powell for this Test, faced 258 deliveries in an innings lasting six hours and 11 minutes, and which included 13 fours.
