As it happened: New Zealand vs West Indies, 2nd Test

Day two roundup: Kirk Edwards and Marlon Samuels made half-centuries to guide the West Indies to 158 for 4 in reply to New Zealand first innings of 441 at stumps on Thursday.

On a day when rain restricted play to 62 overs, Edwards and Samuels showed resilience at the top of the order, though the late dismissal of Chanderpaul left the match tilted in the home team's favour.

Earlier, Watling marshalled the highly productive contribution of the New Zealand tail, reaching his sixth half-century and giving the big hitters in the lower order a chance to exert their influence.
