Tim Southee returns in New Zealand Test squad after birth of child

Kraigg Brathwaite was not out 34 with Shimron Hetmyer on 27.

Tim Southee will likely take the spot of Matt Henry, who took three wickets in the first Test.

Holder, 26, will miss the second Test in Hamilton and has also been fined 60 percent of his match fee while his team mates incurred a 30 percent fine after West Indies were charged with the over-rate offence following their innings and 67 runs defeat in Wellington.

It went downhill for West Indies when Brathwaite's resistance was broken during the morning session.

Watling's replacement in the Wellington Test, Tom Blundell, scored his maiden century on debut for New Zealand, becoming just the 11th Black Cap to do so.


Final scores in the match: West Indies 134 & 319; New Zealand 520-9.

West Indies then suffered two key blows when Hope was caught at gully by captain Kane Williamson off Boult-failing to keep down one that lifted-and Chase chopped on a cut at a wide ball from Henry to depart for 18.

But just like they did in the first innings, after going from 59-0 to all out for 134, the Windies capitulated as Matt Henry (3-57), Trent Boult (2-87), Colin de Grandhomme (2-40), Neil Wagner (2-102) and Mitchell Santner (1-25) tore through the visitors easily.

On 273 for five, debutant Sunil Ambris (18) and wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich (3) steered West Indies to lunch on 286 without further loss, but the innings quickly unraveled thereafter.

The second Test starts on Saturday at Seddon Park.
