Sammy challenges New Zealand to play better in second Test

10:57 am on 11 December 2013

The West Indies cricket captain Darren Sammy has challenged New Zealand to play better in the second Test starting at the Basin Reserve today.

Sammy believes New Zealand played as well as they could do in Dunedin, but still they didn't get the victory.

The tourists say they've taken confidence from the Dunedin match despite being under pressure for most of it, adding they made the most of their luck.

Sammy says they're keen to put pressure on the homeside and he doesn't know what the Black Caps minds will be like.

He says if he was in that situation having dominated for so long and not get the result that was due to them, it would have been disappointing.

New Zealand hasn't won a Test at the Basin Reserve in their last seven attempts since thrashing Bangladesh in 2008, however they did beat the West Indies by 10 wickets in 2006.
