Black Caps v West Indies, day four

Black Caps v West Indies, day four

The West Indies started the day at 2-30 but lost wickets regularly.

And left-hander Shimron Hetmyer stroked three fours in a run-a-ball 15 before becoming the second casualty in the day's penultimate over, loosely driving pacer Southee to Neil Wagner at short extra cover. It will play only limited-overs matches until its two-test series against England in March.

This is the second game in a row where the West Indies have been fined for slow over-rate.

Seamer Miguel Cummins, certainly the pick of the bowlers over the two tests, produced one sizzling six-over spell after lunch in which he removed Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls, had Mitchell Santner dropped by wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich above his head, and clunked the lefthander on his helmet too.

The West Indies, set a target of 444 to win after losing the first Test by an innings, folded at nine for 203 with the injured Sunil Ambris unable to continue batting. He did not score in the innings.

Reifer was out soon after for 29 as the tail folded with the last three wickets adding 45. "I suppose it's nice to be back in our home conditions and to get a lot from that. But in terms of how we wanted to execute our plans, I thought we did it superbly but we know we'll have to be very good again against England in March".

Trump denies all the allegations against him and previously threatened to take legal action against the women. She responded "Well, I mean, you know, the same thing, is women who accuse anyone should be heard".

The Kiwis made 373 in their first innings after being asked to bat by the Windies, who replied with 221.

A series to forget for West Indies and for Ambris.

Tom Blundell (1) and Wagner (8) perished cheaply but Southee caused the Windies frustration at the end, hitting a cavalier unbeaten 22 in an unbroken 34-run, ninth wicket partnership with Taylor.

"For us with the bat we didn't produce, especially in the first innings and in the first test", Brathwaite said.

The incident continued an eventful start to Ambris's test career; he has been out hit wicket twice in his first three innings, including to the first ball he faced in test cricket. He made an immediate impact as Hope tried to pull a short delivery but only managed to get a top edge that was pouched by the fielder at long leg. "Tough loss, but we saw on the bouncy pitches that we have to be better with our shot selection and we need to be more incisive".
