Sunil Ambris of the West Indies leaves the field after being dismissed during day one of the Test match

After a staunch effort by the top order, the West Indies batting crumbled for a second time in the first test to hand New Zealand a win by an innings and 67 runs on Monday and a confidence-boosting lead in the two-match series.

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.

The Windies needed Kraigg Brathwaite or Shai Hope to get a big score, Holder said.

The duo brought up their 50 partnership in the morning session but left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner made the breakthrough when he trapped Brathwaite in front for 91.

The tourists, asked to bat, were out for 134 and once the Kiwis ran up 9 (dec)-520, they were destined for the innings and 67-run loss inside four days.

But captain Jason Holder rejected suggestions they had caved in, saying the plan was to play positively.

Colin de Grandhomme ousted Sunil Ambris from the first ball after lunch and after a tumble of wickets, Trent Boult castled last man Miguel Cummins (14) to seal a comprehensive victory.

Blundell became the first wicketkeeper-batsman since 2007 to make a century on Test debut after surviving 35 balls in the nineties before raising his bat in celebration. Matt Henry took 3-57, removing both Hetmyer and Powell to expose the West Indies' vulnerable middle order then dismissing Chase.

New Zealand cricket selectors confer will Williamson and coach Mike Hesson on selections.

"We knew it was going to be a tough job to bowl them out, and it was".

"I thought in the first innings we were very fortunate".

"BJ's been a world class player for us for a number of years", he said.

"We just didn't handle it the way we should and we've got to find a way to be far more positive and assertive when it comes to short-pitched bowling".
