Windies in trouble against NZ

New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson captured two wickets and took the catch to dismiss Shivnarine Chanderpaul to leave West Indies lurched on 158 for four at the close of a rain-affected second day of the second Test on Thursday.

Marlon Samuels was 50 not out, while Narsingh Deonarine was on 11, chasing New Zealand's first innings total of 441 all out at stumps after rain delayed the start of play by 75 minutes and then washed out the entire middle session.

Tim Southee had trapped Kieran Powell in front for 21 before Anderson captured the wickets of Kirk Edwards for 55 and Darren Bravo, who scored a double-century in the first Test, for four.

Anderson then took a diving catch at point to dismiss the dangerous Chanderpaul off Trent Boult for six to put the visitors on the back foot heading into day three.

"It was good to get past 400 and to take four poles tonight was good too," New Zealand wicketkeeper BJ Watling told Radio Sport.
