  • West Indies opener Kraigg Brathwaite

On a typical green Basin Reserve wicket, Holder won the toss and elected to bowl only to see New Zealand post 441 and then roll the West Indies for 193 and 175.

New Zealand are returning to the Test arena after an eight-month break while the battle-hardened West Indies are coming off a 2-1 series loss to England, including a dramatic victory at Headingley, and a 1-0 win over Zimbabwe.

"George will join the Test squad for the first time on the back of his form in first-class cricket over the past couple of seasons".

West Indies have struggled in recent times and now lie eighth in the Test rankings, well behind the Black Caps who are fourth. Can he build on the gains now?

New Zealand have already announced their XI, picking Matt Henry over Lockie Ferguson as a replacement for Southee, and handing a Test debut to wicketkeeper-batsman Tom Blundell at his home ground.

New Zealand never ever reached those heights.

And the game they were making was actually being supported by a team in Vancouver and a team in Montreal because of that sub-scale nature.

"But sometimes you've got to give credit to the opposition". The weather is expected to be largely fine for the duration of the match.

Despite Ferguson bagging seven wickets for New Zealand A against the West Indies earlier this week, Williamson insisted that Henry has been chosen for the national team since he has been playing exceedingly well for a long time now.

"He likes to use the pace of the ball so he prefers playing here to playing in the Caribbean", Radford told reporters ahead of the first Test starting in Wellington on Friday.

Williamson says, "As the days develop and the pitch ages it does become a good batting surface and there's always bounce for all bowlers".

The West Indies believe they have the batsmen to thrive in New Zealand conditions, but inconsistency has been the Achilles heel they will need to overcome to beat the hosts.

"We know the calibre player both of them are".
