New Zealand will take on the West Indies in the second Test match at Basin Reserve in Wellington on December 11-15 (Friday-Tuesday). The Kiwi’s not only romped home in the first Test with a win by an innings and 134 runs, but they finished the game off early on Day 4. Skipper Kane Williamson led from the front as he scored his career best of 251 runs in the first Test, as his side posted 519 runs in the only innings in the game.
West Indies won the toss and opted to bowl first but were let down by their bowlers who didn’t hit the right lengths in the opening period. While the pacers, especially Jason Holder, were economical at the start, runs started to flow once the host batsmen got set. There were dealt another blow as they failed to chase 519 and got bowled out for a paltry 138 runs in their first innings.
Their second innings was nothing different from the first as the top order rushed back to the pavilion in a flurry. Despite a brilliant 155-run partnership between Jermaine Blackwood (105) and Alzarri Joseph (86), couldn’t save their side as they too got out handing the hosts a massive win.
New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson will miss the second cricket Test against the West Indies, as he’ll be heading home to be with his wife as the couple are expecting their first child. While the West Indies side will be without the services of fast bowler Kemar Roach and wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich. The duo will be returning home due to personal reasons.
The hosts might hope for possible festivities on field in the second Test as they look to clean sweep the two-match series 2-0. Such a win over the visitors will put them on top of ICC Test rankings.
