Kiwis close in on win

New Zealand openers Peter Fulton and Hamish Rutherford safely negotiated their way to the close of play on the third day of the third Test against West Indies on Saturday after their bowlers had set up a likely victory with a destructive display.

Trent Boult had blown the top off the West Indies order before Tim Southee polished off the tail to pick up his 100th test wicket as New Zealand dismissed the tourists for just 103 in their second innings shortly before the close in Hamilton.
