2nd test, Black Caps out for 260 against West Indies
Thu, Aug 2, '12
LATEST: New Zealand are staring down the barrel of another heavy defeat, in the second test against the West Indies at Jamaica's Sabina Park.
Inserted by Windies captain Darren Sammy, the Black Caps' innings started badly and never got a huge amount better as they were bowled out for 260 inside 83 overs.
That left the home side having to bat five overs before stumps, which Chris Gayle and Kieran Powell safely negotiated for the addition of 11 runs.
BJ Watling, opening in place of the injured Daniel Flynn, flirted with disaster from the outset. He twice nicked deliveries into the cordon, only for them to fall short of the waiting catchers, before sending a third straight to Gayle at first slip.
He'd made two and was closely followed back to the pavillion by Brendon McCullum, who was caught behind for nought after getting a useful delivery from Tino Best, who'd come into the Windies side for Ravi Rampaul.
