Finally a wicket West Indies were desperately looking for, this was well tossed up on the pads, Latham was looking to whip it through the leg side, but closed the bat face early and the ball went off the leading edge towards the bowler, who accepts a simple catch gleefully, a soft dismissal in the end for Latham, who played a solid innings.

90.1FOURBenn to Ross Taylor, FOUR, another friendly full-toss, Taylor has no problem in dispatching it between extra cover and long off for a boundary, this is poor bowling from Benn227/2

90.5FOURBenn to Williamson, FOUR, he's got to his 6th Test ton in style, he was made to work hard for almost 34 balls, but with back to back boundaries he's reached his ton today and once again late-cuts it away to third man236/2

103.3OUTBenn to Williamson, out Bowled!! Williamson's vigil comes to an end. Ironically, his judgement, which has been impeccable until now, has let him down. Was that a case of a slip in concentration? This was the arm ball from Benn, skids on, Williamson shoulders arms, allowing a clean pathway for the ball to thunk into the off-stump. Williamson b Benn 113(298) [4s-12]259/3
107OTHERS Shillingford to Ross Taylor, 1 run, 22nd Test fifty for Rosco and the New Zealand dressing room applauds his effort. He reaches the landmark by nudging this towards square leg268/3

110.2OUTS Shillingford to Ross Taylor, out Caught by K Edwards!! That is a pretty tame dismissal. This was tossed up,,dipping in late, Taylor does not get hold of the flick and chips it to Edwards at mid-wicket, who pouches it safely. The two set batsman are back in the hut. Can West Indies build on this? Ross Taylor c K Edwards b S Shillingford 55(127) [4s-8]277/4
111.3OUTBenn to Brendon McCullum, out Caught by Gayle!! What a corker from Benn. Two wickets in as many overs for West Indies.

Brendon McCullum c Gayle b Benn 7(17) [4s-1]279/5

119.3FOURJerome Taylor to Watling, FOUR, what was Benn doing there at gully? Sloppy effort. This was short and wide outside off, Watling slashes hard, the ball flies over gully. Benn was actually ducking there instead of propelling himsef upward297/5
125.3FOURBenn to Neesham, FOUR, Ramdin shouts "catch it" but it evades Chanders at mid-off, tossed up delivery outside off, Neesham comes down the track and mishits the loft, he just about clears Chanders310/5

131.3FOURBenn to Watling, FOUR, quicker and sliding onto the pads, Watling hurries back and whips it to fine leg, he didn't middle that but had enough wood for the ball to trickle away to the fence329/5
131.4FOURBenn to Watling, FOUR, Benn drops it short and outside off, it was asking for trouble and Watling puts it away with utter ease, he cuts it to square third man for another boundary333/5
134FOURBenn to Neesham, byes, FOUR, wrong line from Benn, spinning down the leg-side, Neesham leaves it alone and Ramdin can't get across in time to collect the ball, these are bonus runs for the Kiwi's338/5
136.2SIXS Shillingford to Neesham, SIX, excellent shot! Flighted delivery on the stumps, Neesham shimmies down the track and lofts it beautifully over the bowler's head for the first maximum of the game347/5

168.2FOURS Shillingford to Watling, FOUR, rubbish ball from S Shillingford, too short and wide outside off, Watling had ample time to rock back and slap it away to sweeper cover fence466/5
170.5SIXS Shillingford to Watling, SIX, amazing shot from Watling, tossed up and in the slot, too easy for Watling as he lofts it effortlessly over long on, is declaration on the cards?476/5
171.2OTHERBenn to Neesham, 1 run, turning into the pads, Neesham works it to short mid wicket, the partnership between Neesham and Watling is now 200479/5
172OUTBenn to Neesham, out Caught by Ramdin!! Finally a fine innings has come to an end, a standing ovation from his team mates, it was the slider from over the wicket, Neesham was looking to run it down towards third man, but edged it back to the keeper, who took it on the 2nd attempt, but the umpire ruled him not out initially, but after a series of replays, it was evident that he had edged it and he reversed his decision in the end.

1.4FOURSouthee to K Powell, FOUR, he's off the mark in a streaky fashion, this one came back in a bit and bounced, Powell was unsure about leaving it or playing at it, he ended up stabbing at it and the ball goes off the inside edge just over the stumps to fine leg4/0

24.3FOURIsh Sodhi to Gayle, FOUR, shortish and on off, Gayle having created room plays a full-blooded cut to the sweeper cover fence46/0
25.5FOURCraig to Gayle, FOUR, short again, this time it is slower as Gayle nails the pull and sends it to the deep mid wicket boundary with considerable authority. Brings up the 50 for the hosts as well51/0
26.5FOURIsh Sodhi to Gayle, FOUR, looks like Gayle is coming into his own. Dug in short and wide outside off, Gayle rocks back and slams the cut to the sweeper cover fence56/0
27FOURIsh Sodhi to Gayle, FOUR, tonked. The crowd are on their feet, cheering the local hero. He charges down the track, takes this Sodhi offering on the full and drills it to the wide long on boundary60/0
27.1OUTCraig to K Powell, out Lbw!! Special moment for Craig as he takes his maiden Test wicket. This was tossed up on off, Powell prods at it lazily and is struck on the front pad pad, umpire Tucker raises his finger almost instantly. Powell walks up to Gayle, has a chat with his senior partner, shuts out the review and walks back to the hut. The ball would have carried on to hit middle. K Powell lbw b Craig 28(76) [4s-3]60/1
27.3OUTCraig to K Edwards, out Caught by Ross Taylor!! Two wickets in three balls for Craig. Edwards is asked to wait as the umpires check for a possible no-ball. Craig is fine on that count as well.

K Edwards c Ross Taylor b Craig 0(2)60/2
28.5OUTIsh Sodhi to Darren Bravo, out Caught&Bowled!! Nope, it's not a bump ball, it is a clean catch. NZ are all over WI like a rash.

29.3FOURCraig to Gayle, FOUR, dug in short and outside off, Gayle rocks back and jackpots it in front of point thanks to a full-blooded cut69/3
32.3FOURIsh Sodhi to Gayle, FOUR, cries of 'caatch' but Gayle gets a four. Gayle skips out, takes it on the full, looks to work it to the leg-side, gets a sort of leading edge that flies past the bowler. Sodhi flings himself to his right but cannot catch it78/3
33.1FOURBoult to Gayle, FOUR, 50 for Gayle in his 100th Test. He eases the helmet off his head and acknowledges the raucous cheers from the crowd. On a length and outside off, Gayle drives it on the up and wide of cover85/3

40.2OUTSouthee to Gayle, out Caught by Watling!! Huge wicket for New Zealand after Lunch. No hundred for Gayle in his 100th Test. He goes to an ovation from the crowd. Southee troubled Gayle throughout the first session and he has got the reward for being patient. Keeps it on a length and in the area of uncertainity, Gayle pokes at it gingerly and the ball grazes the edge and settles into Watling's gloves. Gayle c Watling b Southee 64(125) [4s-11]104/4
40.4OUTSouthee to Samuels, out Lbw!! Two in the over! West Indies are falling apart here. Samuels had a chat with Chanders whether to review it, the senior partner thinks it was out and they don't use the review. A good length delivery that nips back in sharply, Samuels stays rooted to the crease and is struck on the knee roll, that looked dead and even umpire Illingworth thought so. There was some reverse swing on that occasion. Samuels lbw b Southee 0(2)104/5
43.2FOURCraig to Ramdin, FOUR, that should give the West Indies skipper some confidence, short and outside off, Ramdin rocks back and slaps the cut through the vacant backward point position for a boundary111/5
49.5FOURBoult to Chanderpaul, FOUR, half volley on the pads, Chanderpaul leans forward and flicks it uppishly over the man at mid-wicket, the timing takes it all the way to the fence124/5

51.4FOURBoult to Ramdin, FOUR, cracking shot! Not a bad delivery, it was on a length outside off, Ramdin drives it on the up and the timing was so superb as the ball races away to the fence133/5
53.3FOURIsh Sodhi to Ramdin, FOUR, Sodhi should not be too worried with this shot, flighted delivery outside off, Ramdin opens the face at the last second and lofts it inside out to the deep extra cover boundary139/5
54.1FOURNeesham to Ramdin, FOUR, hit me delivery from Neesham, full toss on off and middle, Ramdin did not try to do anything fancy, he drives it straight down the ground and picks up an easy four144/5

61.3FOURCraig to Ramdin, FOUR, too full and plenty of width on offer, Ramdin opens the face of the bat and squeezes the drive to sweeper cover, this time the ball has enough to reach the fence171/5

The slower delivery on the hips, Ramdin tries to nurdle it to the on-side, he gets an inside edge onto the thigh pad, the ball lobs back towards the keeper, Watling comes forward and takes a good catch. Ramdin is disappointed with himself as he hits the bat hard on the ground. Ramdin c Watling b Southee 39(77) [4s-6]176/6
63.2FOURCraig to Chanderpaul, FOUR, Craig errs in line and Chanderpaul takes advantage of it, flighted down leg, Chanderpaul kneels down and paddles it to the fine leg fence180/6

65.5OUTCraig to Roach, out Caught by Fulton!! Craig picks up his third of the innings. The umpire gave it out after seeing Roach making a slight movement towards the pavillion. This was very well bowled, flighted around off, gets it to turn and bounce, Roach stays rooted to the crease and gets an inside edge onto the pads, the ball lobs to Fulton at leg slip who takes a simple catch. Umpire Tucker was not giving it out but once he saw Roach walking towards the pavillion he raised his finger. Roach c Fulton b Craig 4(10) [4s-1]185/7

That seemed quite plumb. Rosco should have been forward to that. Ross Taylor lbw b Jerome Taylor 0(1)14/4
16.4FOURJerome Taylor to Brendon McCullum, leg byes, FOUR, bonus runs for NZ. This was full and sprayed down leg, McCullum does not connect the flick, the ball brushes the pad, beats a diving Ramdin and runs away fine20/4

29.3OUTS Shillingford to Brendon McCullum, out Bowled!! West Indies keep chipping away at the wickets. Baz is gone now. Gayle would heave a sigh of relief.

Brendon McCullum b S Shillingford 17(47) [4s-1]55/5

Southee c Darren Bravo b Benn 3(3)146/8
60.4SIXBenn to Craig, SIX, gets off the mark in Test cricket with a six, tossed up delivery outside off, Craig dances down the wicket and lofts it beautifully over long off, it cleared the ropes quite comfortably. The lead is now 401155/8

Third for Sodhi and this time he's got his man, again lures him with a flighted delivery which turns away, Taylor can't resist and skips down the track, he goes for an expansive drive, but wasn't to the pitch of the ball and edges it towards first slip, but the keeper quickly moves to his right and takes a good overhead catch.
