Windies trail NZ by 152 in second Test

Colin De Grandhomme

Their competition has started with long format match. In first Test, New Zealand won by innings and 67 runs against Windies.

Unfortunately for the Windies, their good early work was undone as they allowed the Kiwi tail to wag their way to an improbable total after falling to 8/286.

Among them is the legendary West Indian Brian Lara - which may make Ambris feel better about the company he keeps - and Australian opener Bill Ponsford, who remarkably fell in that manner in his final two tests in 1934.

Reifer and Cummins ensured the West Indies made it safely to stumps as they put together an unbeaten 11-run partnership.

Hariri recently returned to Beirut and said he would stay on as prime minister despite political tensions in that fractious nation.

The West Indies started out Saturday winning the toss but despite the loss of three wickets New Zealand have not been under serious pressure. "If we told ourselves this morning we would have them seven down by the end of the day's play we'd have taken that".

But Gabriel, whose first two overs cost 22 runs as he had trouble with a damp piece of ground where he planted his foot, said the West Indies were satisfied with the position of the game. Raval and Williamson added only 31 runs in 15 overs during the first hour of play but the second hour began in positive fashion for the hosts. Southee first took the ball above his head at short cover, lost his grip on it briefly and then dived forward to catch it again, one-handed, just above the turf. Later, skipper Williamson came and joined with Raval. But finally Grandhomme stood a bit while with Blundell.

Boult was left stranded on 37 off 27 balls, which included five boundaries and two sixes. But 10 minutes later he was bowling the first over of the West Indies' reply and took the wicket of Kieran Powell without scoring. "I'll tell you for free they're not too happy losing eight wickets", Boult said.

Kraigg Brathwaite was not out 45 with Shai Hope on 14.
