Match Notes

  • Cairns' Hamilton holdout

    Campbell and Griffith smashed hundreds as West Indies cruised to 276 for no loss on the opening day. Then came the fightback

  • Rain grants WI a reprieve

    The West Indian cricketers may have sang as the rain foiled a strong New Zealand bid for victory on the fourth day of the first cricket Test at WestpacTrust Park yesterday

  • The West Indies Cricket Team: Excellence in Ineptness

    One Sports Radio headline suggested: "New Zealand crush West Indies by 9 wickets." Considering the relative positions of the two teams after Day 1 of the 1st Test, this headline seems as if it came from the Twilight Zone

  • New Zealand win the First Test

    One big question arises from the first New Zealand-West Indies at Hamilton: how could the team ending the first day at 282 for one lose the match

  • Rain does not prevent West Indies embarrassment

    Rain had the final say on the fourth day of the Hamilton test but not before the New Zealand bowlers had reasserted the dominance they had established over the West Indies batsman on the second day
