Wellington Test: Grandhomme's maiden ton stretches Kiwis' lead

Wellington Test: Grandhomme's maiden ton stretches Kiwis' lead

De Grandhomme's hundred is the fastest recorded innings for a maiden Test hundred.

Tom Blundell became the third kiwi keeper to make a fifty on debut.

Colin de Grandhomme has bludgeoned his way to his first Test century and the second-fastest by a New Zealander to turn the screws on the West Indies in Wellington.

At stumps on day two, New Zealand were 9-447, a lead of 313 runs.

Brendon McCullum's 54-ball blitz against Australia remains the world record but de Grandhomme overtook McCullum's 74-ball knock against Sri Lanka.

West Indies captain Jason Holder (1-85) had Nicholls caught behind in the third ball after the restart but adding to the frustration, he had overstepped. "He's up there", Cummins said, admitting that their plans to shut down de Grandhomme did not work.

"I know it's a milestone but for me it's just keep batting the way you're going", he said. It makes it a lot easier for me. This difference in strike rates between him and the other New Zealand batsmen of 95.81 is the fifth-highest for any batsman scoring 100 or more runs in a Test innings. Crowe, who died a year ago of cancer aged 53, was Taylor's close friend and adviser, credited with being a major influence on his career, and Taylor has frequently spoken of his desire to match Crowe's record as a tribute to his mentorship.

The last time the two teams met at the Basin Reserve, four years ago, they were beaten by an innings and 73 runs after Holder won the toss and put New Zealand into bat.

The only wicket to fall during Saturday's morning session was opener Jeet Raval (42), caught behind off Kemar Roach's first ball of the day.

Roach got a delivery to come back into the right-hander, who was plumb lbw, although the Windies needed a review to get the breakthrough.

The initial appeal was turned down by Australian umpire Rod Tucker with two noises heard as the ball went through suggesting a possible inside edge.

Blundell was unbeaten on 57 at stumps to go with Taylor's 93 and 66 for Nicholls on a day in which New Zealand scored 362 runs, lost seven wickets and left the West Indies exhausted.

Taylor made it to the nervous 90s but he couldn't quite reach Test centrury No. 17.
