    Over 20 Vettori 0-0-1

    102-1 The single from the third ball of the over brings up a much wanted and deserved victory. They take the lead in the two match series, making it 1-0. West Indies win by 9 wickets.

  •  

    Over 19 Wagner 4-0-4-2-1-1

    101-1 Gayle upper cuts a good ball from Wagner over the slips for a four. Taylor jumps and tries to catch it, but it goes over his head. That is another boundary for Gayle towards fine leg, just guides the ball from his pads and makes it look easy. Then works the ball on to the off side for a couple, inching closer to a good win. Scores are level! WI need one to win!

  •  

    Over 18 Vettori 0-0-0-1-1-0

    89-1 Vettori gets the ball. A good over to start for the spinner. Just two runs from it.

  •  

    Over 17 Wagner 0-0-0-0-4-0

    87-1 Wagner keeps Gayle guessing with a good over. Eventually Gayle drives one straight down the ground for four, bringing up his 50 in style. Just the boundary from the over.

  •  

    Over 16 Bracewell 1-0-0-0-0-0

    83-1 Gayle takes a single of the first ball and moves on to 48. Fudadin defends the rest of the over. Windies now need 19 to win.

  •  

    Over 15 Wagner 1-4-0-0-0-0

    82-1 Wagner replaces Williamson. Fudadin clips one away on to the leg side for a four. Nicely played off the pads. A quiet over after the boundary, Windies need 20 more to win.

  •  

    Over 14 Bracewell 0-0-4-W-0-0

    77-1 Bracewell is back to replace Wagner, and Williamson will also be taken off the attack after the last over. Powell plays a controlled shot, guiding the ball past gully for four. WICKET! After the controlled shot, he plays this one into the air to give Brownlie an easy catch at point!

  •  

    Over 13 Williamson 1-2-6-2-6-2

    73-0 A good shot from Gayle behind point for a couple. Then goes over the top of the off-side for a six, just hitting the rope. He drives through the covers for a couple and picks one up straight down the ground for another six. A huge over for Gayle and the Windies. And gets two to finish off a great over for the home team.

  •  

    Over 12 Wagner 0-2-1-0-0-1

    54-0 Gayle uses the pace of Wagner to cut for a couple of runs. The keeper walking up the the bowler to tell him something. A good over from Wagner.

  •  

    Over 11 Williamson 0-0-0-0-0-0

    50-0 Two slips for the spinner. Appeal for a catch in the slips again, Taylor taking the catch of Powell. Umpires gives it not out, reckons it did not hit the bat or glove. Replays show the umpire was correct. A maiden from Williamson.

  •  

    Over 10 Wagner 0-1-0-1-1-4

    50-0 Wagner who fought with the bat will have to strike with the ball. Powell quietly working the ball to the leg side for a single. Another single on the leg side. Another single, that's three in the gaps of the leg side. Gayle touches one with his bat and it runs down for a four.

  •  

    Over 9 Williamson 1-1-0-4-4-1

    43/0 Gayle and Powell back as Windies need 70 to win. Kane Williamson to start with the ball. A shout for a catch against Powell, the umpire says no but Taylor refers it. Replays show it hit the Powell's fore arm and went to Taylor in the slips, that is not out. NZ lose a review. Powell hits one in the air through the covers, shouts of 'catch it' but it is over the head of the fielder for a boundary. Then smashes one through straight mid-wicket for another four. A good over for WI.

  •  

    Tea break

    West Indies need 70 more to win at tea. NZ still looking for their first wicket.

  •  

    Over 8 Martin 0-0-1-1-0-1wd-0

    32-0 Very wide down the leg side, van Wyk does well to collect it. Even if Waitling is ready to play the next test, van Wyk should not be dropped. He is a good keeper and puts up a fight with the bat. A wide called, way outside the off stump. That will be tea.

  •  

    Over 7 Bracewell 4-1-0-0-0-0

    29-0 Gayle steps on the gas, by hitting the first ball of the over into the air on the off side for four. Powell blocking the rest of the over after a single for Gayle.

  •  

    Over 6 Martin 0-0-0-0-0-4

    24-0 Martin has bowled a lot better today, controlled his line and length and pitched the ball in the right areas. A half volley punched away for four by Powell.

  •  

    Over 5 Bracewell 0-1-0-4-0-4

    20-0 Gayle plays a nice shot, powerfully dispatching one into the leg side for four. Then he drives one through the point region for another boundary. Nine from the over, a good one for the home team.

  •  

    Over 4 Martin 0-0-0-0-0-4

    11-0 Martin continues over the wicket. Gayle tries to pull the ball to the leg side, unsuccessfully. A good over from Martin, keeping it tight to Gayle, trying to play the patience game. The last ball is a short one that is pulled away for four by Gayle.

  •  

    Over 3 Bracewell 0-0-4-0-0-0

    7-0 A quiet and watchful start so far from the Windies. Powell changes that with a straight drive past the bowler for four.

  •  

    Over 2 Martin 0-0-1-0-0-0

    3-0 Chris Martin to share the new ball with Bracewell. Three slips and a gully for Powell who drives a couple to mid-on. Gayle blocks the rest of the over.
