Shillingford to Rutherford, OUT, what a stunner! New Zealand lose their first wicket a few minutes before lunch, it was tossed up on off, Rutherford went for the loft that brought him a six last over, he hit it out of the middle but hoisted it high rather than far, Deonarine was stationed at a three-quarters long-on but was nevertheless forced into backpedalling and the ball appeared to be likely to fall behind him until he stuck his right hand out behind his shoulder and the ball stuck as Deonarine tumbled over in controlled fashion, if that doesn't inspire the visitors nothing will, outstanding fielding

HD Rutherford c Deonarine b Shillingford 62 (114m 83b 10x4 1x6) SR: 74.69

New Zealand 95/1   PG Fulton 30* (67b 6x4)   S Shillingford 4-2-12-1

Best to Redmond, OUT, soft dismissal and not Best's best delivery but it earns him a wicket, it was good length on middle and leg and Redmond looked to work to leg but got a thick leading edge which picked out the gully fielder with pinpoint accuracy

AJ Redmond c Samuels b Best 20 (41m 34b 3x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

New Zealand 117/2   PG Fulton 31* (95b 6x4)   TL Best 10.2-4-32-1

Sammy to Fulton, OUT, poor stroke sees Fulton depart, it was a good length outside off and he jabbed at it whilst on the move and it flew straight to second slip, another New Zealand batsman fails to kick on after getting a start

PG Fulton c Edwards b Sammy 61 (226m 145b 11x4 0x6) SR: 42.06

New Zealand 185/3   LRPL Taylor 36* (48b 6x4)   DJG Sammy 11.3-3-38-1

Sammy to McCullum, OUT, Sammy earns the breakthrough! Full outside off and just shaped back through the gap between the defensive bat and pad and crashed into off stump halfway up, McCullum is on his way

BB McCullum b Sammy 113 (176m 134b 14x4 3x6) SR: 84.32

New Zealand 380/4   LRPL Taylor 112* (170b 14x4)   DJG Sammy 20.1-3-74-2

Best to Anderson, OUT, well taken by Ramdin and West Indies have a fifth! Fighting back this morning are the visitors as Best angled this well down leg, Anderson could only get a thin touch on it and Ramdin dived very well to his right to take it low one-handed as Anderson departs without scoring

CJ Anderson c †Ramdin b Best 0 (17m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 385/5   LRPL Taylor 117* (177b 14x4)   TL Best 24.4-4-95-2

Best to Watling, OUT, Best earns some reward for finding the right length on middle and off, Watling was stuck in the crease as he jabbed at the straightening delivery, bit of extra bounce sees it take the shoulder of the bat and goes low to the right of second slip who neatly collects the catch

BJ Watling c Edwards b Best 41 (105m 84b 4x4 0x6) SR: 48.80

New Zealand 469/6   LRPL Taylor 153* (238b 18x4)   TL Best 28.5-5-117-3

Deonarine to Southee, OUT, Deonarine snags his first scalp as the ball straightens off a good length on off, thick edge rushes into the lap of first slip who did well to hold on

TG Southee c Bravo b Deonarine 2 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 472/7   LRPL Taylor 154* (239b 18x4)   N Deonarine 9.4-0-27-1

Deonarine to Sodhi, OUT, tame leading edge to a shortish ball on leg, through the attempted flick too early and it balloons up behind the bowler's end stumps where Deonarine races back to collect the catch

IS Sodhi c & b Deonarine 35 (72m 63b 5x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

New Zealand 548/8   LRPL Taylor 193* (283b 22x4)   N Deonarine 15.3-0-42-2

Best to Wagner, OUT, slapped to mid-off who dives well to stop and fires a throw back to the bowler as Wagner sets off anyway, Best does well to collect a wide throw and flick it directly onto the stumps with Wagner well short as New Zealand also decide they've had enough fun and declare

N Wagner run out 37 (46m 40b 3x4 2x6) SR: 92.50

New Zealand 609/9   LRPL Taylor 217* (319b 23x4)   TL Best 34.1-5-148-3
