In that match, the West Indies were 59-0 in their first innings before being bowled out for 134 and 257-3 in their second innings before being dismissed for 319.

New Zealand still holds the advantage in the match and two-test series after winning the first test at Wellington by an innings and 67 runs. New Zealand will hope to get rid of the remaining wickets and pile on runs.

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.

However, team New Zealand made a good start with their two top rated opener Raval and Latham. At lunch captain Kane Williamson was with Raval, not out on 20.

The rookie batsman could score only two runs off 10 balls before stepping onto his stumps while facing Kiwi pacer Trent Boult. But finally Grandhomme stood a bit while with Blundell.

Hope only made 15 before falling to Southee, while Roston Chase scored 12 before he was cleaned up by Colin de Grandhomme.

Shane Dowrich pushed the West Indies to the brink of avoiding the follow on with a racy 35 before skying an attempted pull at Neil Wagner and Kemar Roach, attempting to emulate Boult's distinctive approach, speared a catch to short third man. Later in 2nd wicket partnership, they added few runs.

Sunil Ambris trod on the stumps for the second time in his career when he was on two, while stand-in captain Kraigg Brathwaite was sent packing by De Grandhomme after a spirited knock of 66, which came off 116 balls and included nine boundaries and a six. They are trail by 158 runs in 1st innings.
