BRIDGETOWN - Sulieman Benn's five-wicket haul gave the West Indies the lead as New Zealand were dismissed for 293 on Thursday's opening day of the third Test at Kensington Oval in Barbados.

With the series locked at 1-1, the home side closed the day at 0-32 in reply.

Continuing to carry a heavy workload, the tall left-arm spinner finished with 5-93 off 26.2 overs to restrict the Black Caps on a pitch that looked set to produce a result.

On the opening day Benn had excellent support from fellow Barbadian Kemar Roach, the fast bowler claiming 4-61.

Allrounder Jimmy Neesham top-scored with 78 but his run-out typified another day for the tourists.

Williamson fell for 43 to a catch at slip by Darren Bravo in the third over. Taylor, on 45, then faced a delivery from Roach that took the shoulder of the bat and Benn gave the fast bowler his third wicket.

McCullum and Neesham counter-attacked with a succession of boundaries in a 54-run fifth-wicket partnership before Benn removed McCullum for 31 via a top edge comfortably held by Bravo at slip.

New Zealand made one change, replacing legspinner Ish Sodhi with Neil Wagner and leaving the slow-bowling duties with offspinner Craig.
