The West Indies have powered themselves to an impressive 363 for 4, with New Zealand having their work cut out for them. Powell began it all, before Edwards and Bravo took the reins. They are halfway there if they are looking to square the series, whereas New Zealand will wan to leave this series with their head held up high. We will be back soon for the New Zealand reply.
