West Indies breaks NZ resistance

Saturday, June 21, 2014

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad - Left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn took two wickets and a stunning return catch as the West Indies toiled towards a series-levelling victory by reducing New Zealand to 4-129 at lunch on day four of the second cricket Test.

The Blacks Caps, who conceded a first-innings lead of 239 on day three, still trailed by 110 runs at Queen's Park Oval.

Kane Williamson hit a top score of 52 before paceman Kemar Roach, 1-34, made a telling breakthrough.

Ross Taylor was unbeaten on 28 at the break.

The determined partnership between Williamson and opener Tom Latham carried on for the first 45 minutes yesterday, taking New Zealand from 1-73 overnight to 84 before Benn struck.

Latham the left-hander scored 34 off 138 balls and his stand with Williamson was worth 75.

The West Indies had to wait another hour before they broke New Zealand's resistance again as Roach finally prised out Williamson, who spent 214 minutes at the crease.

The right-hander hit five fours off 178 balls before nibbling outside the off stump and edging to wicketkeeper and skipper Denesh Ramdin.
