Jermaine Blackwood’s century of defiance was not enough for the West Indies to avoid a round defeat by New Zealand.
It was as if they’d never walk away.
The Black Caps sealed another all-around win in home Test cricket on Sunday with innings and 134 rounds Over the West Indies in Hamilton.
In its first nine-month test, New Zealand took 80 minutes on the fourth day to complete the win.
On Sunday, tourists resumed still needing 185 runs to make New Zealand on the racket again, with only three wickets in their sleeves as wicket keeper – batsman Shane Dorisch couldn’t again get off the racket.
Jermaine Blackwood made 104 with Wendy’s after Ross Taylor gave him the life he needed on Sunday to score his second Test Century, leading to him dropping out of Tim South when he was 29 years 89.
Blackwood’s previous test ton was recorded in 2015 and has since perished twice in 95.
The Black Caps prepare for a big win over Wendy’s in Hamilton.
Number eight Zari Joseph’s pursuit of his first Test Ton fell 14 times as he finally ran out of his fortune to finish a daring stance 155 times tall for the seventh wicket.
New Zealand’s recent home test series saw two convincing wins on the then-top-ranked Test side, beating India with 10 wickets in Wellington and seven wickets in Christchurch.
They won seven of their last eight home tests, and Sunday’s success was the fourteenth victory in 20 home Tests of the Black Caps under Ken Williamson, who scored the victory with his highest Test score of 251 in the only role for New Zealand. .
Five more home tests were pulled in that period from 2016 with a solitary loss for South Africa at the Basin Reserve in 2017, when the tourists recovered from 94-6 in their first innings to win eight wickets.
The first test would have been over in three days had the New Zealand dispatch been more severe at the last Saturday session.
“As we entered the day, we knew it was going to be tough. They are hitting deep and hitting the middle really well. Jermaine scored a very good hundred. So we had to be patient with the ball in hand and know that if we stay in the areas long enough, we will have our chances,” he said Williamson.
“The wickets were starting to flatten so it was important that we put in a team effort.
There are a lot of different bits and pieces to look at but nothing gives you an answer that way. For us, he was sticking to our plans. I think we’ve seen some powerful applications from the hitting and bowling combinations to stay in mission for long periods.
“I think when the ball moves and you lose the racket, you can try really hard. I think our teammates started like this but after that they stabilize really well.”
The second test begins in Wellington on December 11th.
