‘Gave away too many loose balls’

Wellington: New Zealand will have to bowl exceptionally well to dismiss West Indies early on the third day of the second Test on Friday to give them a chance of victory, all-rounder Corey Anderson said.

“I think it’s a pretty good track. So we’re going to have to bowl well in the morning to take these next six wickets and try to get into a position where we can win the game,” Anderson said. “I think we’re in a good position at the moment... (But) we still have a lot of work to do.”
