New Zealand vs West Indies 1st Test Day 4 Highlights Today 4 Dec 2017

Watch West Indies vs New Zealand cricket highlights today on 4-12-2017. WI vs NZ first Test day 4 highlights. New Zealand took no time to wrap up the game and win first Test with a huge margin of an innings and 67 runs.


Yesterday West Indies showed some resistance but today once again we watched another collapse of their batting line which allowed Kiwis to win the game with big margin. West Indian last seven wickets added up only 150 runs to the total which was quite disheartening for their fans.

The New Zealand quicks got the new ball and played havoc with it. Matt Henry got 3 wickets for 57 runs while Trent Boult, Neil Wagner and Colin de Grandhomme claimed two wickets apiece. Only one wicket went to the spinner and it was that of innings top-scorer Brathwaite. After his dismissal, West Indies started losing wickets with quick succession.

Then, from the 86th over, came the rapid collapse. Shai Hope, whose innings had been defined by its reticence, was dismissed playing a defensive shot – a Boult lifter finding his outside edge, then Kane Williamson’s hands in the gully. Roston Chase, who had hit Boult for consecutive boundaries to get his innings under way, did not last long following Hope’s exit, inside-edging a wide Henry ball on to his stumps.

West Indies went to lunch with five wickets remaining, but New Zealand needed less than an hour after resumption to close the game out. Debutant Sunil Ambris edged de Grandhomme to wide slip, first ball after the break. Then, next over, Shane Dowrich slashed Wagner to point – it was the first ball Dowrich had faced in the session. The tail was in no mood to resist. Kemar Roach, Jason Holder and Miguel Cummins were all out in the space of 28 balls.
