The wicket was no longer offering the bowlers any assistance but the fight had gone out of the West Indies, with the downward slide gathering pace from the first ball after the interval when Sunil Ambris was out.

However, just as the West Indies had entere cruise control, Henry provided the breakthrough for New Zealand again as he removed Hetmyer for a career-best 66, which came off 89 balls and included eight boundaries and two sixes.

West Indies then suffered two key blows when Hope was caught at gully by captain Kane Williamson off Boult-failing to keep down one that lifted-and Chase chopped on a cut at a wide ball from Henry to depart for 18.
