West Indies battle with the Kiwis in the first test, which is being played in Wellington. West Indies have had a bad first day with the bat, as New Zealand bowled them out for 134, thanks to Neil Wagner’s 7-39. Although there were expectations from Wagner, he performed out of the way, along with Boult, who plucked two West Indian wickets. The West Indies in return removed two New Zealand batsmen before day 1 stumps.

Brathwaite and Powell put on a healthy opening partnership before the New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson made some changes and all of a sudden, the 59-run opening partnership between the batsmen was broken by Wagner when Brathwaite was dislodged at 24. Then Boult sent Powell back to pavilion at 42. Then the next wickets fell like a house of cards, when one card is removed.

Boult often hit the perfect area – fuller than a good length – in his opening spell. He usually gets his wickets when the ball swings from that length, but with no lateral movement available, the openers were comfortable leaving or defending. Boult began the day with three straight maidens.
