Trailing by 373 runs, the West Indies were dealt a huge blow on the sixth ball of their innings as opener Kieran Powell was caught behind off the bowling of Southee for a duck. Reifer, on test debut, played a bold late hand, defying the New Zealand bowlers for 107 minutes.

New Zealand are looking to wrap up a 2-0 sweep of the two-test series after an innings victory at the Basin Reserve last week.

The duo frustrated the West Indies bowlers adding a 61-run stand, taking New Zealand's second-essay score to 373. He received able support from new batsman Raymond Reifer.

Colin de Grandhomme then muscled a 71-ball hundred and Tom Blundell hit a debut ton as New Zealand replied with 520-9 declared, before dismissing Holder's team for 319 second time around.

Ambris earned a rare distinction in test cricket when he was out hit wicket for the second time in the only three innings of his test career.

New Tomb Raider confirmed, here's what the leaks already tell us
After all, Square Enix's reboot of the franchise has been tremendously successful in terms of critical acclaim and market success. Well, Shadow of the Tomb Raider has leaked because a Reddit user spotted its marketing presentation open on the subway.

It seems like West Indian batsman Sunil Ambris has made it a habit of stepping on to his wickets while wielding his willow. Southee first took the ball above his head at short cover, lost his grip on it briefly and then dived forward to catch it again, one-handed, just above the turf.

But just as the visitors sensed batting time, it was deja vu, and this time in more punishing fashion.

Southee, Boult, de Grandhomme and Wagner all finished the day with two wickets, Southee the pick of the quartet.

The New Zealand bowlers chipped away and the wickets came.

Holder was deemed guilty of a second minor over-rate offence in 12 months - the first coming against Pakistan in April - resulting in a suspension, meaning Kraigg Brathwaite is now set to lead the Windies at Seddon Park in Hamilton (9.55pm, Friday, Sky Sports Cricket). Latham missed the opportunity and the ball went for boundary.
