game over! Yorker on the stumps. Gabriel has a swing. Ball crashes into middle. New Zealand win by an innings
Tim Southee and Neil Wagner wrap up dominant 2-0 win
Joshua da Silva's debut half-century gave West Indies a positive takeaway from a difficult tour
That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo as the team comes together for a group photo. Latham holds the trophy. Catch all the post-match roundup on the homepage soon, and see you soon for more cricket. Up next, NZ v Pakistan in four days.
Tom Latham, NZ stand-in captain: "Looking at the Test championship, its nice to get the full points from this series. We stressed on one game at a time. World rankings are a byproduct of their effort. Pretty special for us to go joint-first. Focus will quickly move to the next Test series against Pakistan after the T20 series. So many guys put their hand up in the series. Henry's innings and Kane's in the first Test, and the effort of the bowlers to put WI back both times and keep coming. They never complain, just do their job. Long may it continue. The wickets in NZ have been pretty green traditionally. We find a way to play in these conditions. When you go around the world you have to adapt to different conditions. Haven't checked my phone but I'm sure Kane would've been watching the last few days.
Jason Holder, WI captain: "Disappointing, but the fight in the second innings was what we were looking for, should've done in in the first game. We created opportunities but let some of them off. Chemar and da Silva were good. We've showed time and time again we can do it, but we are inconsistent. Seems like I repeat this in every post-match. We need to see our technical and mental side of things. Impossible to make inroads when you give them 7 chances. No excuses, just need to find a way."
Kyle Jamieson (11 wickets) is Player of the Series for his allround show. "Cool to be part of this special group. Feel fortunate. Played a small part. Collective effort, not just me, whole bowling unit performed so well. Like to get the most out of myself. Excited to see how high I can go. Want to try and improve each day. At this stage, my bowling will come first but I certainly want to be an allrounder. That's the exciting thing, how to juggle both things. Going outside NZ and playing is exciting part of this. When overseas tours do happen, just try to learn and use my skillset in outside conditions."
Henry Nicholls is the Player of the Match for his highest Test score of 174. "Nice to contribute, and a PB (personal best). Nice to win the Test, the series, two innings victories. Lots of ebbs and flows and luck in the innings. Partnership with lower order was good, what Wagner did at No. 10 went a long way..Knew no Kane would be an absence, good to plug those gaps." He also donates 500 NZD to his local cricket club in Christchurch.
11.51am Two wins in two Tests, both with an innings margin, and that too after being asked to bat at the toss in each occasion. The absence of Kane Williamson wasn't felt either, Tom Latham doing an excellent job in KW's unavailability. West Indies added 73 today, and if Jason Holder did not fall so early in the day, they would've probably forced New Zealand to bat a second time. Joshua da Silva's effort on debut was promising. John Campbell was astute yesterday afternoon too. Those two and Holder got half-centuries in WI's second-innings effort of 317. Three wickets for Boult and Wagner, two each for Jamieson and Southee in this innings. Remember Jamieson and Southee shared five wickets each in the first innings, so all four bowlers had a good outing. Don't forget Wagner's rolling maiden fifty in his 50th Test on day two, and Henry Nicholls' 174.
NZ have lost all three reviews now
appeal for lbw turned down, and NZ review This was a full ball on middle and leg, hitting Gabriel flush on the boot in front leg stump. Was it swinging in too much? Yes...missing leg stump
length ball on off, and he opens the bat's face to guide a shot to deep point
short ball on middle, and he makes room to slap it leg side. Misses
bouncer on middle, and he swiftly ducks. The keeper has a hard time taking the grab in one take
full outside off, and he flat-bats a shot past the bowler's left, and mid off can't stop it either!
low full toss and he toe-ends a straight drive over the bowler's head!
Would've been game over had NZ reviewed that first lbw shout.
pushed to the off side
yorker on leg, and it hits his leg, but the lbw appeal is turned down. <
full on middle, and he wants to go up and over. Mistimed to midwicket
full on leg and he steps forward to defend. Hits the back leg, but probably too high. They appeal but umpire Brown is unmoved. B>Replays show that's hitting the stumps
With that, it's back to Sreshth.
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
length ball on off stump, lets it come and defends to short extra-cover
back of a length down leg, can't connect with the flick off the hip. Looks like Wagner's overstepped
Here's Wagner. Left-arm over.
full on off stump, driven to the squarer of the two cover fielders
full again, outside off, driven into the covers
floaty full-toss wide of off, driven to the right of deep point
short, wide, slapped to the right of deep point
too full again, outside off, and Latham dives right at short extra-cover to stop a firm da Silva drive
starts with a full, floaty ball outside off, and da Silva just whacks it down the ground, straight of mid-on. Not a drive, more a big, booming hit
Thanks, Sreshth. Interesting bowling change, here's Daryl Mitchell. New Zealand are waiting for the second new ball to become available.
