Nonetheless, the momentum shifted drastically courtesy Kiwis’ stubborn lower-order contribution. West Indies need a spirited effort to cut short the deficit. They trail by 158 runs with only two wickets in hand. The in-form batsman Raymon Reifer will have to bat for maximum period to ensure this target is achieved.
