West Indies slump to innings defeat
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) – New Zealand won the second cricket Test match against the West Indies by an innings and 73 runs early this morning, completing the victory inside three days and with paceman Trent Boult taking match figures of 10 for 80.
The Black Caps took 16 wickets in a little over two sessions yesterday and today as the West Indies were bowled out for 193 then 175 in reply to New Zealand’s first innings of 441.
It was New Zealand’s first Test win in 12 months, taking a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
Boult took a career-best six for 40 in the first innings, including a spell of five for 15 in six overs of the morning session. He followed up with four for 40 in the second innings as the West Indies batsmen showed little resistance.
