New Zealand Black Caps win first test against West Indies in convincing fashion

New Zealand marched to an easy victory in the first test against the West Indies at the Basin Reserve today, completing the job shortly after lunch with a day and a half to spare.

 

The Windies, having started the day at 214 for two, 172 runs behind New Zealand, were dismissed for 319, 48 minutes after lunch handing the hosts an innings and 67-run victory.

They had lost a further three wickets by the interval but the last five wickets came in a freefall after lunch.

The first two fell in seven balls.

Windies Cricket..Lovely Windies Cricket!

Cricketwindies is the leading voice for Caribbean and International cricket news, information and opinion. We’re a community of cricket fans who follow all cricket. In other words, a bunch of high-strung, fanatical cricket enthusiasts who have far too much time on their hands.

For many years the West Indies team ruled the cricket world, playing undefeated in a Test series for over 15 years. Recently the West Indies team has suffered several losses but with the emergence of new high-calibre players the future for the West Indies cricket team looks very good!

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region. This gentleman's game has brought considerable exposure to the islands of the Caribbean, with the West Indian cricketers being remembered not only for their incredible talent and skills but also for their deportment and sense of fair play.
