  • Cricket: Black Caps all out for 373 in first innings against West Indies

Ambris had come to the wicket after Shai Hope was out, only a few balls after also copping a nasty blow to the forearm from a short-pitched delivery from Wagner.

The hosts did not need to take all 10 wickets after Sunil Ambris retired hurt when a short Neil Wagner delivery broke his arm, as the visitors resumed on 30-2 and were never really able to establish a solid partnership throughout the day. Powell was caught at slip by Tim Southee from the bowling of Trent Boult, and Hetmeyer chipped a catch to Neil Wagner at mid-off from Southee's bowling.

Reifer was the next to depart five overs later, spelling the end for West Indies as Santner cleaned up Kemar Roach (32) and Miguel Cummins (9).

He was out in that fashion for a first ball duck on his debut in the first Test at Wellington and he suffered the same fate Sunday, becoming one of only three batsmen in Test history to be out hit wicket a couple of times in their careers.

Henry Nicholls' (5) stay at the crease was brief, dismissed by Cummins in his very next over after edging to wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich.

It is the second-heaviest defeat New Zealand ever inflicted on a side chasing in the fourth innings after the 254-run win over Zimbabwe in Bulawayo previous year. "Credit to the way we stuck to our plans and executed them well in both games", Williamson told reporters.

The 24-year old cricketer made his Test debut this month, but it has not gone how he would have hoped. Southee and Boult starred with bat and ball as the West Indies were left struggling 158 runs behind on the first innings with only two wickets remaining.

Remember that West Indian batsman that stepped on his stumps with his first ball in Test cricket?

"I always thought I'd be just a white-ball player".

Earlier this month, Sunil Ambris found himself with an unwanted record when he became the first batsman in Test history to be dismissed hit wicket on debut. "It was a loss but we saw on these pitches you have to be careful in your shot selection but we saw how New Zeland played and realize we have to be more decisive with the bat".
