    We are all set for the action to begin on Day 2! The West Indies players are in a huddle with skipper, Jason Holder having a final word with his players before they take their respective positions in the field.

  • 2:20 AM IST

    It was a forgetful Day 1 for the West Indies and they will hope to have a much better outing. They were poor with their line and length and will look to be better with it. This has the potential to be a long day for the tourists and they will have to come out with intent. Can Holder and co. stage a fight back or will New Zealand build on their dominant start?

    Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the first Test between New Zealand and West Indies. The hosts are in a very dominant position led by their skipper. Williamson is just 3 away from another Test ton and the Kiwi skipper will be eager to make a big one. He is joined by the extremely experienced Ross Taylor. The two will look to build on their 75-run stand.

    … Day 2, Morning Session …

  • 12:07 PM IST

    The Windies bowling was quite wayward to begin with! They did not make most of the new ball. Also, they did not have a lot of luck on their side. There were times in the day where they did decently but without any success. They will now need to come out on Day 2 and take wickets quickly or they will fall well behind the 8-ball game. Do join us for that. Till then, goodbye and take care!

    He won the toss and elected to bowl on a green surface with the idea of picking early wickets. He did get one but that’s it. It was all New Zealand after that. Tom Latham and Kane Williamson added a 150-plus run stand. Latham departed 14 short of his ton but Williamson and Taylor continued the good work. The former is nearing his ton and the Kiwis would hope he continues and along with the rest, they can post a huge first innings score.

    New Zealand’s day quite easily! They will be mighty pleased with where they stand in the game. Holder, on the other hand, will be very disappointed with how things went along.
