Darren Bravo takes off after reaching his first hundred on his home ground, West Indies v New Zealand, 2nd Test, Trinidad, 2nd day, June 17, 2014


Vee: "This Thursday and Friday are public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago which is when I intended to go down to the Oval and soak in some of the cricket so I hope the game lasts until then. Poor planning though by the WICB, two holidays and the weekend would have made for four days of cricket with a much better turnout."

Mark: "Darren Bravo jumped and punched the air like BC Lara did when he got to 400 a few years ago. Great batting from Bravo, was way over due for a 100."


End of over 78 (7 runs) West Indies 287/3

DM Bravo 107 (151b 11x4 4x6)
KC Brathwaite 113 (222b 11x4 0x6)

KS Williamson 6-1-18-0
MD Craig 18-2-77-0


Kelvin: "I think New Zealand made an error in selection this game. Their strong suit is their pace line up and this track definately offers more to pace bowlers than the last Test. They should have picked Wagner instead of Sodhi. Kane Williamson is a more than capable 2nd spinner if he is needed."

Ben: "Having now seen West Indies a few times in the past year playing our Black Caps, I think there is plenty of reason for West Indian fans to be hopeful about the future of this batting lineup. Edwards and Bravo both look like they could be solid and consistent contributors, and Brathwaite is showing today that maybe he has something too. Now if they could just find some fast bowlers like they had in the 80s and 90s, and they could be on their way back up."


The new ball is available now, and New Zealand have taken it. three slips, two gullies for Boult

David Leggat: Taylor haunts Black Caps yet again

12:11 PM Tuesday Jun 17,


The last time New Zealand clapped eyes on Jerome Taylor he was belting them about Dunedin's University Oval en route to a maiden test century.

That was late in 2008 when, batting at No 8, his run-a-ball 106, as part of a 153-run stand with Shiv Chanderpaul, helped pull the West Indies from a dicey situation and ensure a draw.

Now, after a four and a half year absence from the international stage, Taylor's class has added fresh penetration to the West Indies attack.

His four for 34 spearheaded their running through New Zealand for 221 on the first day of the second test at Port-of-Spain today.

That comes after an impressive display of control in unhelpful conditions in the first test loss in Jamaica. Taylor's 37-16-65-4 for the match brought back control so badly missing from the seamers during their tour to New Zealand last summer.

Jimmy Neesham, BJ Watling and Ish Sodhi were whisked out in similar fashion, edging catches behind the wicket when pushing away from the body at deliveries swinging away in the space of 16 balls. Suddenly 192 for four became 199 for seven and the shape of the game had changed significantly.

Taylor's most celebrated performance was ripping England out for 51 on his home ground at Sabina Park in early 2009. Taylor's five for 11 - Strauss, Cook, Pietersen, Collingwood and Prior, no mean haul - set up an innings and 23-run win.

Nine months later he was gone, bedevilled by injury, and that seemed his lot. For a long time it appeared to have brought a premature end on a burgeoning career, which began 11 years ago.

Instead Taylor is back, still just 29, and setting high standards for the West Indian seamers.

As for New Zealand, Hamish Rutherford fared no better than Peter Fulton at the top of the order, 22 balls over three before an edge to slip, and had Ross Taylor not been badly missed in consecutive balls on 13 and 17, 221 would have been substantially trimmed.

Trent Boult's peach to remove Chris Gayle before stumps slightly redressed things. But New Zealand have plenty to do in the coming days to keep their nose in front in the series.

Bravo, Brathwaite grateful for help
By Garth Wattley
Story Created: Jun 17, 2014 at 11:52 PM ECT
Express

When Kraigg Brathwaite reached his first Test century and Darren Bravo his first in the Caribbean and on home soil, they were not thinking of themselves only.

Bravo ran towards where his parents sat in the stands and also dedicated his 109 to the Special Olympics athletes of Trinidad and Tobago. He also took the time to thank brother Dwayne for the chat they had before the match, and mentor Brian Lara.
“Brian is my role model,” Bravo said after scoring his sixth Test century.

“When he scored his first hundred (in T&T), I was right up in the members stand looking on, so I knew that whenever I got the opportunity, I wanted to go out there and actually make a hundred on my home ground. It was my first hundred in the Caribbean, so it was a special one, knowing I made it in front of the people of Trinidad and Tobago.”

Bravo also spoke about timely advice from the former West Indies ace batsman Lara before the match. “He just told me that I should concentrate as much as possible. He has been looking at me for quite some time and he believes that my concentration tends to lack a little bit. He told me that whenever I get past 30, my average tends to be in the high 70s, so what he was trying to say, whenever you get a start it’s very important that you carry on, so I listened to him. It was a great feeling and I would like to thank him very, very much.”


Brathwaite, 21, made the most of his recall to the Test side for this match with his 129, spread over six hours. And when he got the single that took him to three figures, there was one he remembered instantly.
“I thought about my father,“ said Brathwaite, to whom he dedicated the knock. The opener also mentioned the work he did recently with “positive person” Sir Viv Richards at the Sagicor High Performance Centre, which has helped with his new approach to batting.

He was also grateful to Bravo with whom he put on 182, a record for the fourth wicket against New Zealand. “Obviously he’s a good player. He was talking to me a lot, telling me to play straight and it worked out for both of us,” he said.

And Bravo also was full of praise for his batting partner.
“I must say very well done to Kraigg. That was a fantastic innings. He eased the pressure on me the way he batted. He’s very disciplined, so I was happy to bat with him, I’m happy that myself and Kraigg were able to put the team in the driving seat.”

Oval distraction
Story Created: Jun 17, 2014 at 11:37 PM ECT
express

A day at the cricket has been a less frequent experience for me this season; and not by design. But for this West Indies versus New Zealand Test match, I am determined to make up for lost time; even if that means taking my eyes off the World Cup for a couple hours. World Cup fever though is like dust; it gets into everything, including the Queen’s Park Oval.

Monday, 11.30am,
Gerry Gomez Media centre
“Portugal is a football team?” West Indies Cricket Board media officer Adriel “Woody” Richard is asking, challenge ripe in his tone. The first match for Woody’s beloved Germans and the Portuguese is less than half hour away, but he is in a belligerent mood. He gets some support. “Portugal is something to eat!” chimes in the local cricket board’s media man Zaid Mohammed.
That is what Woody is expecting his Germans will do in a few minutes. The football talk is livening up the room in a way the cricket is not doing. Guardian reporter Venode Mamchan is offering to bring coffee to various people. He’s sure they will need it as New Zealand proceed calmly to lunch, only one wicket down for 86.

The Oval pitch may have a tinge of encouraging green, but there seemed to be no special challenge for the batsmen. West Indies, playing Shannon Gabriel for the injured Shane Shillingford, did not make Tim Latham, Hamish Rutherford and Kane Williamson play at the ball often enough, not in areas that would get them out. Lunch score not encouraging: 81-1

2.45pm
The Germans feasted on their Portugal, 4-0. Woody can’t stop talking about it. But the West Indies players could not be as content having their tea right now. They got two more wickets in the second session. But they should have had more. The Windies missed about five chances after lunch, four of them going to hand.

Dangerous Ross Taylor tried his best to get out. He cut straight to new boy Jermaine Blackwood. Ball went through him. Bowler Sulieman Benn was not pleased.
Taylor then gave catching practice to Denesh Ramdin and Chris Gayle. He put the ball between them and they watched it and each other as it went for four. Why only one slip for your fast bowler at this stage?
And just to test whether this was one of those days when he could do anything and get away with hit, Ross struck the same bowler Jerome Taylor up the on-side of the pitch, only for the man placed close-in there, Kirk Edwards to put down the catch.
With that they all went to tea. How different 159 for three would have been but for all that! Big Benn only had one wicket up to that time, but he had applied enough pressure to have taken about three.

Three is what he eventually ended up with though. The last session turned the day around. Taylor stepped it up, bowling consistently on a full length, the fielders started holding catches again and the wickets began tumbling down.
West Indies have so missed Taylor’s skill with the ball and awareness of what is required in a given situation. Hope he can stay fit. Taylor and Benn put WI back in the match with New Zealand all out for 221. Good comeback. But will those missed chances still turn out to be a factor later on?

5.20pm
End of play near; end of Gayle already. Big man looked very uncertain at the crease, and did not cover his off-stump for the one that Trent Boult bowled him with. Benn replaced him for night watchman work. Wish they would stop with that. Let the specialists go and bat. This will be an early wicket in the morning.

Tuesday, 10.30am
Took the bowlers four-and-a-half overs to get rid of Benn. It was a bit much to expect he would last too long against the still new ball. Kirk Edwards now gets the chance to earn his pay.

Lunch, noon
Good morning’s play. Entertaining. Surprising really.
Didn’t expect that West Indian batsmen, so lacking in runs lately, to have played so positively. Give Edwards credit. He didn’t let rookie off-spinner Mark Craig settle. Played sweetly through the covers and thumped him for a couple sixes too. Jimmy Neesham also got slapped around too in his 55.
The big surprise was that Kraigg Brathwaite took his cue. He shed his default slow mode and attacked Craig, even when New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum packed the avenue through midwicket for the off-spinner.
Even when Edwards went, Darren Bravo got 10 runs off his first three balls. It was good cricket, the batsmen attacking and the fielding side staying on the attack, close fielders flocking around the batsmen like corbeaux circling for food.

Gus Logie, West Indies hero and coach of not so long ago was there taking it all in. Not too many others were there with him, such are the times, so different to when he played Tests here. Didn’t miss the World Cup this morning. Hope the rest of this match is as much of a distraction.

The cracks on the pitch haven't opened up with the grass cover holding them together, says Jeff Dujon on air. Still decent batting conditions then. There are a few rough areas, not quite rough enough yet, Dujon adds

WiFan: "It makes me angry when fans and experts alike go on about Chanders being crab-like and stodgy as if that is all there is to his batting. If you consider his strokeplay from the point of making contact with the ball, it is as classy and complete as any of the other greats - he has all the shots in the book, including genuine pull and hook shots, and no more than the standard weaknesses outside off.

RH: "Ish Sodi is playing because he takes wickets at critical junctures; please open your eyes beyond ...."

McCullum and Latham will open the batting. Rutherford had not taken the field this morning with an upset stomach, and he cannot bat till the New Zealand innings is 164 minutes old, we are informed on air. Or he can come in at No 7, if New Zealand lose five wickets before that time elapses. Latham to take strike. Taylor from round the stumps, an angle that bothered Latham in the first innings


James: "Nasty little session coming up for New Zealand. 6 overs or so from Roach and Taylor. Little to gain and a lot to lose."

Roger: "Sammy over Gabriel? Don't agree, Jason Holder instead of Gabriel. He is the tallest bowler we have had in a while, the selectors need to give him some time to develop. Gabriel needs to go and play Rugby or something. He has never impressed, his pace isn't even that great."

Neil: "These two are doing the job that is required. I don't know why anyone is hassling them for slow batting. There are two full days after this one, so much time, and if these two can take us to the end of the day still 1 wicket down then I would be extremely happy. If they manage to wipe off the deficit in the first couple of sessions tomorrow with plenty of wickets in hand then they may be able to start attacking a bit more. But until that happens, this is what is required."

This partnership has lasted nearly 35 overs, but New Zealand are still 166 behind. A lot of time left in this Test, and West Indies firmly in front at the moment.

Cricket: Black Caps trail by 166

10:00 AM Thursday Jun 19, 2014

New Zealand battled back strongly after conceding a first innings lead of 239 in the second test against the West Indies today, reaching 73-1 in its second innings at close on the third day at the Queen's Park Oval.

No. 3 Kane Williamson hit an unbeaten 38 and shared a determined, unbroken second wicket stand of 64 with opener Tom Latham, who struck 30 not out.Pacer Jerome Taylor removed stand-in opener Brendon McCullum, the Kiwi skipper, and finished with 1-15.

The West Indies, replying to New Zealand's first innings of 221, had earlier stretched its overnight 310-5 to 460 all out half hour before tea.

Newcomer Jermaine Blackwood hit a forthright 63 off 110 balls with six fours and two sixes.

He shared stands of 47 with veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul and 76 with captain Denesh Ramdin to help ram home the advantage the hosts had built on day two.

Chanderpaul struck five fours and a six in 47 while Ramdin hit four boundaries in 32 off 67 balls.

New Zealand removed nightwatchman Kemar Roach (6) and Chanderpaul in the morning session. Roach chipped Trent Boult to short midwicket at 333-6 while Chanderpaul was given out lbw playing no stroke to a big-spinning leg break from Ish Sodhi - after a TV review - at 380-7.

But Blackwood and Ramdin consolidated the Caribbean's side advantage after the break with an enterprising half century stand.

The tourists eventually wrapped up the innings with three wickets for the cost of four runs.Blackwood edged to Ross Taylor at first slip off Sodhi while Ramdin picked out the same fielder, who dived to his right to haul in a brilliant catch to give seamer Jimmy Neesham his first scalp.

Sodhi ended the West Indies' resistance when Jerome Taylor (4) holed out to long-off.

The leg-spinner earned career-best figures of 4-96 while left-arm seamer Boult took 3-75.

New Zealand, forced to open with captain McCullum instead of the ill Hamish Rutherford, survived unscathed to tea.

But Taylor struck early in the final session when he gained an lbw verdict against McCullum (3), who failed as he tried to overturn the decision on TV review.

But Latham, with three successive half centuries behind him, and the equally assured Williamson blunted the home team over the next two hours, ten minutes with few alarms.

The pair, which has already shared two century stands in this series, chose defense as their main method. Williamson blossomed at times and counted five fours off 118 balls, while Latham struck four boundaries off 122 deliveries.

ICC MEDIA RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dubai, 19 June 2014

 

Tim Southee fined for breaching ICC Code of Conduct

 

New Zealand fast bowler Tim Southee has been fined for a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Code for Players and Support Personnel during second day’s play in the second Test against the West Indies in Port of Spain.

 
Southee was fined 30 per cent of his match fee by Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees, after he pleaded guilty to breaching Article 2.1.8, that relates to ‘conduct contrary to the spirit of the game’.

 The incident related to Southee’s confrontation with West Indies batsman Kirk Edwards around the 31st over of the West Indies’ first innings, which required the intervention of the on-field umpires.

 Commenting on his decision, Mr Broad said: “Southee’s behavior towards Edwards was unacceptable and contrary to the spirit of the game. He disregarded the on-field umpires’ previous warnings and continued to engage with Edwards, which required the intervention of the umpires in the middle of the pitch.

 “In doing so, Southee neither showed respect to his opponent nor to the umpires, something which has no place in our sport.”

 The charge was laid by on-field umpires Ian Gould and Rod Tucker, as well as TV umpire Richard Illingworth, all from the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires.

 All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee.

David Leggat: Pressure on young batsmen to save test

12:51 PM Thursday Jun 19, 2014Add a comment

Tom Latham hasn't put a foot wrong as a test opener; Kane Williamson's resolute qualities are not in doubt.

The two young men shape as key to New Zealand's prospects of surviving the second test against the West Indies.

When they resume the fourth day early tomorrow at 73 for one, New Zealand will be trailing the hosts by 166 runs, with their captain, Brendon McCullum already dismissed and a question mark over the health of opener Hamish Rutherford.

A far cry indeed from the first test in Jamaica, won so handsomely by 186 runs.

In fact the West Indies have got themselves into a formidable position in similar fashion to New Zealand in Jamaica, dismissing the opposition cheaply in their first innings, piling on a strong first innings of their own - in which two batsmen, Kraigg Brathwaite and Darren Bravo (for New Zealand read Williamson and Jimmy Neesham) made centuries and Jermaine Blackwood added a lively half century on debut.

The task is tall for New Zealand.

Still Latham, with scores of 83, 73 and 82 in the series, and Williamson, who hit his sixth test hundred in Jamaica and has now eased his average up to 37.12, are well capable of hunkering down. Latham is just 20 runs short of becoming the eighth Black Cap to score four successive half-centuries.

Rutherford's illness did raise one interesting point, though.

McCullum, a former test opener, whose days going in first appeared to be over after the tour to South Africa at the start of last year, stepped up to fill the temporary vacancy.

This is the man who scored New Zealand's first triple test hundred four innings ago, has averaged 49.9 since the start of England's visit early last year and who, you'd have thought, should have been best employed in his usual position.

Clearly pushing wicketkeeper BJ Watling up to the top, after hours in the field, was not on, but this was a case where perhaps Williamson and the following batsmen should simply have moved up a spot.

Consider Williamson has been a de facto opener all last summer as Peter Fulton and Hamish Rutherford battled dreadful batting yips. Since putting on 95 against the West Indies in Dunedin in the first test of the home summer, that pair have average 14 for the first wicket.

Would Williamson have been significantly handicapped by having to walk out for the first ball with Latham? Don't think so.

Instead McCullum, first test failures notwithstanding, was removed from a position in which he must feel a high degree of comfort.

McCullum's 302 at Wellington against India was a monumental demontration of defiance and concentration. New Zealand will need those qualities in abundance over the next two days.

Instead the player who has proven he can do it most recently, has been removed from the equation for a short term fix.

10.05am Finally we have the groundsmen out. They are scraping off pieces of that loose surface. The hosts won't like this delay. Should have been taken care of before the start of play

10.04am Nobody has come out yet to do something about this. It's just the batsmen and the umpires scratching and gardening in the offensive area

10.02am Oh hold on. There is a delay. The pitch around the foot marks, right at the crease, is coming off, as if damaged. This will need repairing. It is peeling off. Not sure why this has come to the notice of everybody at the time of the start of the day's play
No crowd despite this being holiday to watch the home side push for a win. Kane Williamson and Tom Latham walk out to resume the hard work from yesterday. How are West Indies going to go about this? Spin is the first option. The new ball is 39 overs away

9.55am "The cracks have opened but very very little," says Jeff Dujon of the pitch. "It remains a pitch that is good for batting. The bowlers will really have to toil."
Five minutes to go to the start of day four

9.45am The skies are clear blue right now, and we are on for an on-time start

10.10am More testing going on. Wonder how the batsmen in the shed feel about this? Wonder who is happier with this delay? Ten minutes lost say New Zealand, but uneven surface to stand on says West Indies
We are ready to go again

10.07am Seven minutes lost already. The batsmen are testing out the area now. Umpire Rod Tucker has just used the hammer to see how solid the surface is
