Kane Williamson defies terrifying pitch in batting masterclass against West Indies

03 Décembre, 2020, 20:23 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Kane Williamson's unbeaten 97 on a green pitch put New Zealand in charge on day one of the first Test against the West Indies at Seddon Park.

The skipper moved to within sight of his 21st Test century to help the hosts to 243-2 at stumps, sharing a second-wicket stand of 154 with opener Tom Latham (86) after the tourists won the toss and chosen to bowl.

Torrential rain prevented West Indies from salvaging pride, or possibly a whitewash and they had to settle for a no-result against New Zealand in the final Twenty20 worldwide of the three-match series on Monday.

Roach and the West Indies squad are in the country for a two-test series, having already completed three Twenty20 and several warm-up matches, and the pace bowler was preparing for the opening match at Seddon Park when he received the news.

"If you said to us this morning we'd be 240-odd for two we'd obviously take that", Latham said after stumps. Some of the young players who haven't been here have gotten a little bit accustomed to Test-cricket conditions here which, I think, is going to be similar from where we were to here.

Scoring wasn't always easy but Latham and Williamson's innate patience was rewarded. The Caribbean team is better prepared in this format considering that it played a series against England.
