West Indies 87-2 when rain sets in

First West Indies got rid of New Zealand's tail-end batsmen Neil Wagner and Tom Blundell.

Needing to go on, Brathwaite perished to a third stunning catch of the day - Trent Boult with a diving caught-and-bowled and Shai Hope with a flying gully effort the others - spooning de Grandhomme to short cover where Southee parried up then reached full stretch with his right hand to complete.

A feisty innings of 35 from 45 balls from wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich and a partnership of 35 for the eighth wicket between Raymon Reifer and Kemar Roach helped slow the decline and allowed the West Indies avoid the follow on.

New Zealand also had the last word in the fight when Joe Webber ran in the last try of the match to take the score to 19-12. Reflecting on the team's performance, England Sevens head coach Amor praised his side's effort and attitude.

New Zealand are looking to wrap up a 2-0 sweep of the two-test series after an innings victory at the Basin Reserve last week. According to the last news, they have lost eight wickets and Reifer and Cummins are in the bat.

The duo frustrated the West Indies bowlers adding a 61-run stand, taking New Zealand's second-essay score to 373.

He hit two fours from the first over of the innings bowled by Shannon Gabriel, who struggled to find his length early and also gave up two consecutive fours to Latham in his second over.

It seems like West Indian batsman Sunil Ambris has made it a habit of stepping on to his wickets while wielding his willow. Television replays, which were not requested by the batting side, hinted that despite Southee's athletic effort the ball might in fact just have touched the ground. The 24-year old became the only player in the Test history to be out hit-wicket twice in his first two matches. At 87-2 and with Brathwaite and Hope together in a 44-run partnership for the third wicket, the West Indies looked to be finding their footing in the match but the rain dampened their fightback.

Sothee, Boult, De Grandhomme and Wagner claimed two wickets each.
