The West indies cricket side is 258 for six heading into the second day of the second test against New Zealand in Napier.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul will resume on 100 and will be joined by first test century maker Jerome Taylor who is on one.

Chanderpaul and Brendan Nash added 163 runs for the fifth wicket, rebuilding the tourists innings after they were 74 for four at one stage.
