WI spinners strike back

Kingston: The West Indies spinners snared three wickets in the opening session on Day II of the first Test, on Monday, to peg New Zealand back a bit in their first innings .

At lunch on the second day, New Zealand were 299 for five. BJ Watling was batting on 12 while Jimmy Neesham was giving him company on 10.

Resuming at the Day I score of 240 for two, the visitors lost their centurion, Kane Williamson (113), with just 19 runs added to the board. Ross Taylor (55), the other overnight not out batsman, departed 18 runs later.

While Williamson was castled by Sulieman Benn, Taylor’s wicket was claimed by Shane Shillingford.

New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum couldn’t stay at the crease for long, lasting just 17 balls.
