Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Jesse Ryder, 1.6 ov), 2-3 (Martin Guptill, 3.6 ov), 3-10 (Ross Taylor, 6.4 ov), 4-32 (Kane Williamson, 11.1 ov), 5-57 (Corey Anderson, 16.6 ov), 6-66 (Luke Ronchi, 19.1 ov), 7-93 (James Neesham, 26.4 ov), 8-104 (Brendon McCullum, 30.1 ov), 9-112 (Kyle Mills, 32.5 ov), 10-156 (Nathan McCullum, 42.1 ov)
11.1 to KS Williamson, and he strikes first ball of his new spell! And what a beauty it was. Full length ball, angled in from wide of the stumps and gets it to straighten. Williamson was lured into a drive into the on side and a feather of an outside edge results and before he knew it, Ramdin was leaping up in joy! That was just too good from Holder.. 32/4
42.1 to NL McCullum, and he's gone now! That has been a brilliant rear guard action from Nathan McCullum and it has given the chance for New Zealand's bowlers to have some sort of total to bowl at. It was short, it was down the leg side and it deserved to be put away as Nathan was looking to do, but his pull shot went straight to deep fine leg. 156/10
1.6 to JD Ryder, duck on international return for Ryder! What an unfortunate dismissal too, it was wide, it was full, it was meant to be smeared through point for one of those punishing boundaries he is so well known for, instead he has creamed it straight to cover point and Darren Bravo dives low to his right to pick up a ripper! Rampaul's uncanny knack of securing an early wicket continues. 2/1
3.6 to MJ Guptill, oh, he curls this one back into him and Guptill has no idea it. He was looking for another drive on the up and is struck on the knee-roll. Should have been a lot more tight early in the innings, but he couldn't help himself and was struck plumb in front. Playing around his front pad which was pushing a little too far on off stump which gives me the impression he was looking for the awayswinger. 3/2
19.1 to L Ronchi, oh, what a silly way to get out! There was only one down there and his sweep short homes in straight at him. Johnson Charles has had a great match out on the field today and he enjoys a bit of luck this time. He had only long-on for company deep on the leg side and as Narine lobbed a flighted ball on the pads, Ronchi lofted it straight into his waiting hands.. 66/6
16.6 to CJ Anderson, oh dear, he has found Simmons on the long-off boundary. Terrible shot that and New Zealand sink further. It was a length ball which perhaps hit a touch too high on the bat as he was looking to hoist that through the line and over the top, which mucked up his timing. Simmons hardly had to move as he picks up a simple catch to put a great big smile on Bravo's face. Wicket in the first over for the West Indies captain. 57/5
26.4 to JDS Neesham, another powerful shot struck straight at the fielder! It was a length ball with room outside off stump, Neesham essays a cleanly-struck cover drive, but it was in the air towards where Darren Bravo was waiting and picks up a very good, low catch to his left. The umpires do their cursory check of the front foot and much to all the local fans' chagrin, Bravo's foot is so well behind the line that it doesn't even cut it. 93/7
30.1 to BB McCullum, he was down the track and was struck on the pads, Bravo goes up in a wild appeal, it did look straight and he was playing around his front pad as well. The umpire is happy to give it out but Brendon reviews it straight away Everything was fine, except he was so far forward. But HawkEye shows it would have just clipped leg stump and the on-field call us upheld! There goes New Zealand's last hope to a bit of an iffy decision from umpire Gary Baxter. The impact was more than 3 m from the stumps. 104/8
32.5 to KD Mills, the short ball works! Mills fends it away, should have looked to duck or sway away, but he had blocked one rather well a few overs ago. This time though there was a little more bounce and it runs off the face of the bat and straight to Sammy at slip. Simple plan, ruthlessly executed. 112/9

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Kieran Powell, 1.5 ov), 2-19 (Johnson Charles, 5.3 ov), 3-32 (Darren Bravo, 7.3 ov), 4-60 (Dwayne Bravo, 11.1 ov), 5-94 (Lendl Simmons, 18.3 ov), 6-96 (Narsingh Deonarine, 20.1 ov), 7-121 (Denesh Ramdin, 23.3 ov), 8-147 (Jason Holder, 26.6 ov)
18.3 to LMP Simmons, edged and it goes to first slip, but Ross Taylor is not sure it carried. So the umpires have a mid-pitch conference. It was a lovely ball just a touch outside off and draws Simmons into a flashy drive outside off. A thick outside edge results and Taylor seems to have got his fingers just about under the ball. The third umpire is making extra sure, as the magnifying glass comes out. And after tons and tons and tons of replays, New Zealand have five and the well-set Simmons walks back. 94/5
20.1 to N Deonarine, he has been leaving his leg stump unguarded for a lone time and this time Mills is on target. Bowls fuller and Deonarine was shuffling way across to the off side to tuck it to fine leg and instead allows clear passage for the ball to hit leg stump. The leg bail is broken as well. 96/6
1.5 to KOA Powell, what has he done! That was not swinging away, it was not outside off and he has just let that knock over his off stump! McClenaghan puts this one a length and angles it in and the batsman, who was hoping for the ball to seam away or at least bounce over the stumps, none of which happened and he has to walk back to the pavilion. 5/1
5.3 to J Charles, bowled 'im! That's what he was looking for when he bowled that wide, this time he gets the inswinger bang on! It was full, it moved very late and Charles was late on the shot and was playing all over the line of the ball with a closed face of the bat and has to endure the sound of the death rattle. 19/2
7.3 to DM Bravo, oh dear, flays the full, wide ball and finds Williamson at a short point position. He had drilled that square drive but much to West Indies' chagrin, cannot find the gap. Bravo wastes a start and New Zealand smell a comeback here. Was it an issue with the bounce on this drop in pitch? So many batsmen are middling the ball but striking it uppishly. 32/3
11.1 to DJ Bravo, full, swinging in, rapped on the pads and he raises the finger. Bravo chooses to review. Pitches in line, seams in quite a bit and Bravo was playing the angle and even as he looks to adjust, the ball thuds rather high on the pads. HawkEye says it would hit the stumps. All three reds and off he goes. 60/4
23.3 to D Ramdin, driven uppishly and Brendon McCullum at short cover makes no mistake. Another lovely, low catch and that's Mitch McClenaghan's fifth wicket. It was there to drive but he can't pierce the field either. Poor judgment, poor shot and key wicket for New Zealand. 121/7
26.6 to JO Holder, and he has a wicket off the last ball of the over. It wasn't the best ball he's bowled as Holder sees this on the pads and looks to flick it away for some easy runs, but doesn't get as much bat as he would have hoped. Ronchi makes no mistake in pouching the edge and New Zealand are back in this. 147/8
