West Indies out for 221, New Zealand lead by 152

Uncapped Barbados all-rounder Raymon Reifer could make his debut in Holder's absence - the 26-year-old left-hander averages a lick over 25 with both bat and ball in first-class cricket.

At stumps they were 215-8, trailing New Zealand by 158 runs, with Reifer not out 22 and Miguel Cummins 10 not out.

Then Shannon Gabriel made an ordinary defensive push at the next ball and was also bowled.

In the first Test in Wellington, the tourists were thumped by an innings and 67 runs and then lost tour captain Jason Holder to suspension for low over rates - the skipper role in Hamilton taken by opener Kraigg Brathwaite.

New Zealand are looking to wrap up a 2-0 sweep of the two-test series after an innings victory at the Basin Reserve last week.




Colin de Grandhomme got Roston Chase with a straight delivery while Sunil Ambris was dismissed for the second time as hit-wicket in three innings. 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.

But just as the visitors sensed batting time, it was deja vu, and this time in more punishing fashion.

An assault from Southee was expected by West Indies.

Boult struck an unbeaten 37 from 27 balls and Southee hit 31 which helped New Zealand reach 373 in its first innings. The opening partnership between Brathwaite and Powell. New Zealand's first wicket fell at 65 - the 50 partnership coming in 73 minutes - and Raval combined with Williamson to see New Zealand to lunch without further loss.

Southee, Boult, de Grandhomme and Wagner all finished the day with two wickets, Southee the pick of the quartet. Latham missed the opportunity and the ball went for boundary.
