West Indies fight back after Kiwi debutant scores ton
West Indies battled back as the Caribbean visitors reduced New Zealand's lead to 172 runs with eight wickets remaining at stumps on day three of the opening Test in Wellington.
But the Windies showed signs of life courtesy of Kraigg Brathwaite (79 not out) and Shimron Hetmyer (66), reaching 214-2 at the close of play.
But just like they did in the first innings, after going from 59-0 to all out for 134, the Windies capitulated as Matt Henry (3-57), Trent Boult (2-87), Colin de Grandhomme (2-40), Neil Wagner (2-102) and Mitchell Santner (1-25) tore through the visitors easily.
The Windies resumed the fourth day in a solid position of 214/2, with opener Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai Hope at the crease.
Brathwaite was the top scorer, falling short of a seventh Test century when trapped lbw for 91 by spinner Mitchell Santner.
The West Indies collapsed spectacularly in their second innings to be all out for 319. But he came to light with two important wickets after lunch on day four - those of wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich and captain Jason Holder who were both century-makers in the West Indies previous test against Zimbabwe.
The second Test starts in Hamilton on Saturday. "It was a great effort with the ball in hand".

Colin de Grandhomme ousted Sunil Ambris from the first ball after lunch and after a tumble of wickets, Trent Boult castled last man Miguel Cummins (14) to seal a comprehensive victory.
"We've seen the West Indies in the last few series they've played and they've got better and better through those series so we'll be expecting them to be better in the next test", Williamson said.
Holder refused to make the toss an excuse for the first innings batting performance which placed his team under pressure for the rest of the match.
"BJ's been a world class player for us for a number of years", he said.
"We said there's two days left in the game and we had to knock off the deficit and the only way to do that was staying positive".
