Narsingh Deonarine gave West Indies a boost with two late wickets, after Marlon Samuels emphasised his career rebirth with a fourth Test hundred in the face of a batting meltdown, which allowed New Zealand to nose ahead in the second Digicel Test today here.
Part-time off-spinner Deonarine removed openers B.J. Watling and Martin Guptill in two overs that cost three runs, as the New Zealanders reached 59 for two in their second innings for an overall lead of 110 at the close on the second day.
This followed Samuels holding the Windies batting together, stroking his highest Test score of 123, as the Caribbean side were dismissed for 209 about 50 minutes after tea on the second day.
