West Indies Embarrassed by New Zealand!

The West Indies cricketers  are  on  course  to  suffer  another  defeat  at the hands of New Zealand after  another  customary  batting   collapse on the third  day  of  the  third  and final  test  at Seddon  Park in Hamilton.

The Windies had lost 16 wickets on the third day in Wellington to lose by an innings. If one thought their standards couldn’t plummet any further, one was to be proved wrong on the third day in Hamilton.

In far friendlier conditions for batting than Basin Reserve, their entire second innings lasted less than a session. It began after tea, and ended so swiftly that New Zealand had time left to face a couple of overs in their second small chase of the series.

New Zealand wins West IndiesEarlier, after adding 193 to their overnight total of 156 for 3, the Black Caps were all out for 347as the in-form Ross Taylor notched his 10th test century and third of the series.


He hit 131 while facing 264 balls in a knock that included 16 fours and 2 sixes and also shared  in  an  important  50  run  6th  wicket  partnership  with  Corey  Anderson  who  got  39.

Sunil Narine starred the bowling for the West Indies with a test best 6 for 91, while captain Darren Sammy picked up 2 for 69. There was also one wicket each for Tino Best and Veersammy Permaul.

With a small first innings lead of 18, the team from the Caribbean batting a second time failed to handle the bowling of Trent Boult and Tim Southee and were blown away for just 103 in 31.5 overs.

The longest anyone lasted was Marlon Samuels, who made 8 off 38 deliveries. The most runs anyone made was captain Darren Sammy, who struck six fours in a hopelessly frenetic 24 off 17 to nudge West Indies into three figures.

First innings centurions Shivnarine Chanderpaul made 20 and Denesh Ramdhin 18 while Narsingh Deonarine who made 13 was the only other West Indian batsman to get to double figures.

Boult ended with 4 for 23, Southee 3 for 12 and Neil Wagner 2 for 34.

New Zealand  at  the  close  of  play  reached  6  without  loss and needing  just  116  on  the  4th  day  to  secure  victory.


Scores at stumps on day 3, West Indies 367 and 103, New Zealand 349 and 6 without loss.
