West Indies won by 9 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

38.3

Narine to Flynn, OUT, gone, Narine gets his first Test wicket. The short ball costs Flynn his wicket even though he's been quite comfortable against those so far, short outside off, there was turn and bounce and it was the bounce that did the trick for the bowler, Flynn went for the cut but didn't make good contact, spooned an easy catch to point

DR Flynn c Powell b Narine 45 (156m 127b 7x4 0x6) SR: 35.43

New Zealand 97/1   MJ Guptill 48* (106b 7x4 1x6)   SP Narine 9.3-4-21-1

49.6

Roach to McCullum, OUT, McCullum has to go, pitched up from Roach, was wide and he went after it, it was there to hit but he couldn't keep it down, struck it hard but struck it straight to mid-off where Narsingh Deonarine held on to a sharp chance

BB McCullum c Deonarine b Roach 25 (50m 43b 5x4 0x6) SR: 58.13

New Zealand 133/2   MJ Guptill 54* (135b 8x4 1x6)   KAJ Roach 14-4-44-1

84.1

Narine to Taylor, OUT, Narine gets his man! Not the delivery he would have expected to dismiss Taylor, short this time, he moved back to jab it towards square leg, struck him on the glove and then rolled back onto the stumps

LRPL Taylor b Narine 45 (136m 96b 6x4 0x6) SR: 46.87

New Zealand 223/3   MJ Guptill 94* (245b 14x4 1x6)   SP Narine 25.1-6-68-2

86.3

Narine to Guptill, OUT, Guptill is distraught, he had a hundred for the taking there but he's thrown it away. The nerves got to him, the urge to get a century quickly, before stumps, failed him. Tossed up by Narine and he went for the big one, went for the slog-sweep, got a top-edge, was a conventional offspinner, Deonarine made no mistake snapping the skier at mid-on

MJ Guptill c Deonarine b Narine 97 (353m 249b 14x4 1x6) SR: 38.95

New Zealand 228/4   N Wagner 2* (10b)   SP Narine 26.3-7-70-3

92.1

Narine to Wagner, OUT, Wagner didn't have much of an idea about that, done in by the turn and bounce, shortish on the off and spins away sharply, tries to defend that off the back foot but is surprised by how that ball spat off the pitch, took the glove and second slip made no mistake, four for Narine

N Wagner c Sammy b Narine 4 (31m 28b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

New Zealand 233/5   KS Williamson 3* (16b)   SP Narine 29.1-7-74-4

109.1

Roach to Williamson, OUT, Williamson goes, he'd looked pretty well set but has got an inside edge back onto the stumps, bowled from wide of the crease from Roach, short of a good length, got on the back foot to defend but played on, may have been a bit of inward movement off the pitch

KS Williamson b Roach 19 (90m 69b 2x4 0x6) SR: 27.53

New Zealand 273/6   DG Brownlie 16* (49b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 18.1-6-49-2

114.2

Rampaul to Brownlie, OUT, what a reply, there's no swing but a bit of away movement helps, Brownlie pushed at that goodish length ball in the channel from the crease and very loosely, got a thin edge straight to Ramdin

DG Brownlie c †Ramdin b Rampaul 23 (94m 66b 3x4 0x6) SR: 34.84

New Zealand 281/7   CFK van Wyk 1* (14b)   R Rampaul 22.2-9-44-1

121.5

Sammy to Vettori, OUT, Vettori goes! Sammy gets a breakthrough, Vettori shaped up for a pull, that was bowled short by Sammy, perhaps the shot was on but he wasn't on the mark to play it, was probably a little late and ended up gifting a catch to midwicket

DL Vettori c Deonarine b Sammy 17 (32m 23b 4x4 0x6) SR: 73.91

New Zealand 308/8   CFK van Wyk 11* (36b 2x4)   DJG Sammy 22.5-7-56-1

122.6

Narine to van Wyk, OUT, that's gone, five for Narine! Turned in from outside off, he tried to close the face, got an inside edge onto the top of the pad and short leg had a comfortable catch to take

CFK van Wyk c Fudadin b Narine 11 (61m 40b 2x4 0x6) SR: 27.50

New Zealand 309/9   DAJ Bracewell 1* (3b)   SP Narine 40-9-110-5

129.1

Rampaul to Bracewell, OUT, Bracewell holes out, was on a good length and Bracewell went downtown, looking to clear long-on but wasn't as well connected, Chanderpaul back-pedalled, kept his eyes on the ball and took a well-judged catch

DAJ Bracewell c Chanderpaul b Rampaul 39 (30m 31b 5x4 2x6) SR: 125.80

New Zealand 351/10   CS Martin 4* (9b)   R Rampaul 23.1-9-44-2
