West Indies captain Jason Holder pulled few punches after his side suffered a humiliating innings and 134-run defeat to New Zealand before lunch on the fourth day of the first Test in Hamilton, saying his batsmen need to deliver in the next game.

West Indies top five combined for 100 runs across both innings, four fewer than what number six Jermaine Blackwood scored in the second innings alone, as the visitors were bundled out for 138 and 247 at Seddon Park.


“I think it’s time we started delivering and stopped talking,” Holder said.

Brief scores: New Zealand 519/7 decl. West Indies 138 & 247 (J. Blackwood 104, N. Wagner 4/66). NZ won by an innings and 134 runs.
