Neesham, Watling lead New Zealand to 428-5 vs West Indies at tea on 2nd day of 1st test

  • Print

KINGSTON, Jamaica - All-rounder Jimmy Neesham smashed 85 not out and wicketkeeper B.J. Watling struck an unbeaten 56 as New Zealand reached 428-5 at tea on the second day of the first test against the West Indies on Monday.

Left-handed Neesham hit 10 fours and two sixes off 136 balls at Sabina Park while Watling was more cautious with five fours off 141 deliveries.

The pair shared an unbroken sixth wicket stand of 149 to lift the tourists from the uncertainty of 279-5 just before lunch.

Left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn took 2-110 while off-spinner Shane Shillingford claimed 2-113.

The 23-year-old Neesham scored a century in his only previous test — against India — and spent 162 minutes at the crease.

Right-hander Watling survived one difficult chance when West Indies captain Denesh Ramdin floored a thick edge off Chris Gayle's off-spin when he was on 48.
