The New Zealand cricketers missed a chance to build a big first innings lead in the second test at Napier with the West Indies to start day four on 62 for two, two runs in arrears.
New Zealand were cruising at 316 for four before the West Indies fast bowler Fidel Edwards sparked a mini collapse as they lost 3 wickets for 3 runs, and were all out for 371.
Edwards finished with a career-best seven for 87.
New opening batsman Tim McIntosh led the way with a superb 136 and while he was obviously delighted to have scored his first test century in only his third innings, the West Indies should have been facing a much bigger deficit.
