• NZ on the verge of victory

    New Zealand dominated the West Indies and are poised to achieve a big win.

    The tourists were 124/8 going into day three of the second Test, and were shot out for 131. Tim Southee and Kyle Jamieson took five wickets apiece.

    The Black Caps, who scored 460 in their first dig, enforced the follow on and the while the Windies performed slightly better with the bat at the second time of asking – John Campbell (68) and Jason Holder (60*) defying the excellent bowling attack – they are still in deep trouble.

    Trent Boult was the pick of New Zealand’s bowlers, finishing the day with 3/75. The Windies trail by 85 runs with four wickets in hand.
