BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shannon Gabriel2679333.5711712100
6.5 to TA Blundell, bowled him! Gabriel gets a lot of batsmen bowled, and he finds the perfect length this time. Just full enough to bring Blundell half-forward to defend, but not far enough forward to cover that little bit of inward seam movement. He's looking to defend, but the angle from wide of the crease and that moment combine to find the little gap between bat and pad and hit top of off. Super delivery. Camping so deep in your crease can make you vulnerable to this sort of ball. 31/1
20.3 to LRPL Taylor, got him!. Gabriel has been unplayable since the first couple of his overs. He's been quick. He's got movement off this very green pitch. He's never let the batsman settle. And when it comes to Taylor, he's been pure torment. This is a back of a length ball angled into off stump. Taylor, because of that, doesn't know if he should play of leave. To further complicate matters, it straightens as well, which in the end is what makes the push his hands at the ball. Faint edge through to the keeper to reward some brilliant bowling by a man playing his 50th Test for West Indies.. 78/3
42.1 to WA Young, superb catch by second slip! And it's the captain himself, showin em all how it's done. The outside edge is flying to him. It's also dying. He needs to move to his right. He needs to do it quickly. It's almost reflex. He sticks out one hand. It sticks. And Gabriel, in his 50th Test has his 150th wicket. What a spell he's bowled today. He's demanded batsmen to play virtually every ball and he's got seam movement away from them them virtually every ball and that's why he keeps being a wicket-taking threat. 148/4
Jason Holder2768503.1412413000
Alzarri Joseph22210934.959315330
57.4 to BJ Watling, Chopped on! That was back of a length, angling in from wide of the crease, and the angle should have warned Watling against the angled-bat back-foot punch. He's utterly cramped for room, and all he manages is an inside edge that makes a mess of his stumps. 203/5
97.3 to KA Jamieson, finally a catch sticks in the slips. Good ball from Joseph, angling into the corridor from wide of the crease, hitting the fuller side of a good length, and straightening. Jamieson looks to drive on the up, and the edge flies quickly to the left of second slip, at about chest height, and Jason Holder reacts quickly to catch it with both hands. 336/7
101.2 to TG Southee, played on! Good length, outside off. Not high enough to cut, and he gets an inside edge, and the ball clips the base of leg stump.. 359/8
Chemar Holder26111024.2310712120
17.1 to TWM Latham, that's a beautiful delivery to get a first Test wicket!. Even in this short spell, Holder has been very good at trying to tempt Latham. And not just into any shot, the most dangerous one on a fast-bowler friendly pitch. The drive on the up. NZ's captain had refrained for a while, but now, for some reason, against a good length ball just a shade outside off stump - the very line he usually leaves - he flays his bat and nicks off to the keeper. The around the wicket angle made that wicket.. 63/2
80.6 to DJ Mitchell, pins him lbw but Mitchell wants to review. This looks straight though. It is a very full ball that the batsman plays all around, while stuck deep in his crease. Certain to be plumb. Ultra-Edge confirms there is no bat and Ball-tracking sends him on his way. Crashing into leg stump. Just rewards for a remarkable young bowler and perhaps that will lift the West Indies out of their slumber. They've played well. They can't let this last hour dictate the rest of this game.. 286/6
Roston Chase1315424.15464100
113.3 to HM Nicholls, gone, Chase ends Nicholls' long innings. Tosses it up outside off and he goes hard at the drive, but can't keep it down, and short extra-cover takes a sharp catch. Kraigg Brathwaite the fielder, throwing himself low to his left. A packed Basin Reserve rises to applaud his innings. 454/9
113.6 to TA Boult, another super catch, this time from Brooks, to end the innings. Tossed up, and Boult flicks uppishly. Brooks does the rest at midwicket, diving to his left once again. 460/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Tim Southee17.463251.81892000
2.2 to KC Brathwaite, gone, it doesn't take long for Southee to hit the perfect spot. The line is so tight around off stump, and the length is impeccable. Brathwaite is never one for a big front-foot stride, just squares up as it swings away late, and he edges his defensive jab into the lap of Ross Taylor at first slip. 0/1
10.6 to DM Bravo, gone, Southee strikes again, Bravo's popped one straight back. Full, curving in late towards off stump. Goes for the drive and then checks himself right at the end. Wanted to play that towards mid-off, but the swing makes him check his shot, and the ball pops back to Southee off the inside half of the bat. Great reflexes to grab it with both hands in his folllow-through, to his right. Bravo stays at the crease for a few seconds, either in disbelief or in the belief that it was a bump ball. It wasn't. 22/2
45.6 to J Blackwood, Nice dismissal! Blackwood out for 69 Southee gets some extra bounce and Latham in the wide slip is in the action again. Full just outside off, he pushes at it, and it takes the edge. Curse of the Nelson too.. 111/6
54.4 to J Da Silva, gone, that's a soft dismissal for da Silva. He looked quite at ease in the middle, but Southee produces some indecision with a fullish outswinger in the corridor. Goes to play at it, then pulls his bat away, but leaves it in the ball's path, and it brushes the face of it through to Watling. 127/9
56.4 to ST Gabriel, this time Southee doesn't miss. Finishes with a well-deserved five-for with a full ball, scrambled seam, which is angling well down the leg side, but Gabriel is also backing away. Looks to flick and misses, and the ball ricochets off his pad onto the stumps. 131/10
Trent Boult1453402.42705000
Neil Wagner1252802.33604001
Kyle Jamieson1343452.61645010
14.3 to JD Campbell, third time, he gets his man! Don't need the umpire's approval this time. Full on off, and he looks to drive, but it takes the outside edge and Latham at second slip moves to his left to complete the catch. All action in Jamieson's over so far. Campbell's painful stay ends. 29/3
14.4 to RL Chase, first-ball duck! This over just gets better! Literally no movement from Chase. An attempted yorker that lands around the crease. Chase does not move his feet, and the ball moves into him - in the air - and crashes into the stumps. Chase's bat is nowhere near the ball too. On a hattrick. 29/4
40.6 to SSJ Brooks, breaks the stand! And he finally gets Brooks' wicket. Scrambled seam, good length ball angling in, seaming off the pitch, and Brooks shoulders his arms but pays the price for it. Ball clips the top of off and he falls after his 92-ball innings where he scored just 14 runs. Jamieson getting rewarded for extracting something off this surface. Beautiful delivery. 97/5
48.3 to JO Holder, soft dismissal! Jamieson keeps improving his average. Back of a length on off, and Holder is through his attempted pull too early. Leading edge, in the air, and short mid on takes a simple catch. 117/7
48.6 to AS Joseph, full outside off, and he presses forward to defend, but the ball takes a thin outside edge forcing Watling to take a tidy low catch. His second five-for in Tests. 117/8

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Tim Southee2249624.36938400
66.6 to JO Holder, Beautiful delivery that has Holder playing down the wrong line. Full just outside off, and Holder is looking to defend down middle and off, but the ball goes past his outside edge and pegs off stump back. Three wickets away from victory, NZ. 252/7
70.6 to AS Joseph, soft dismissal! Joseph will not make more today. Length ball from around the stumps, outside leg stump , and Joseph edges this flick. Watling has to put in a dive though. Quite anti climactic. 282/8
Trent Boult2139634.578510100
11.1 to KC Brathwaite, full, on middle, and he flicks, but taken by the diving fielder at leg gully! What anticipation! Brathwaite's promising innings comes to a close. Will Young full stretched there. 37/1
11.4 to DM Bravo, they're appealing for caught, but is that off the bat? Yes, Bravo is walking! His horror batting run continues. This was a peach of a short ball, forcing Bravo to try and defend from near his face. Ball hits his glove, pops in the air, and point makes no mistake. Two in the over for Boult. 41/2
48.1 to J Blackwood, cleans the stumps! Full, on middle but Blackwood thinks it will angle across and therefore tries to slog it, but the ball moves into middle instead, goes through the defenses, and pegs the stumps back. Boult's third of the day. 170/6
Kyle Jamieson1544322.86746010
37.4 to RL Chase, the slip cordon again! Good length outside off and angling in, Chase is taken aback by some extra bounce while trying to defend, Takes the outside edge, and second slip swoops in front of first to take the catch.. 131/4
39.4 to JD Campbell, dragged on! Campbell is disappointed with how he has got out. Jamieson's rampage continues. Good length ball, outside off, Campbell tiptoes to cut, ends up under-edgjng the ball onto the stumps. 134/5
Neil Wagner17.145433.148210001
34.6 to SSJ Brooks, got him, Wagner's really fired up now. Superb length, and all those drives have made Brooks play at one he needn't have, though the line may have forced him to. Length ball that slants across the right-hander, with extra bounce in the corridor. Comes forward to defend, and the ball kisses the outside shoulder of his bat through to Watling, who tumbles to his right to take a sharp, catch above chest high. 130/3
77.2 to J Da Silva, full, beaten on the flick, and Chris Brown upholds the lbw shout without any hesitation. Da Silva has reviewed with even less hesitation. Looks like it might have pitched outside leg... No inside edge there, just straightened past the bat. And it's a cracking decision from Brown, who's had an incredible debut Test. Ends another debut Test, though. It pitched just inside the line of leg stump, and was straightening to hit a good part of leg stump as per ball tracking. 307/9
79.1 to ST Gabriel, game over! Yorker on the stumps. Gabriel has a swing. Ball crashes into middle. New Zealand win by an innings. 317/10
