The West Indies resumed yesterday at 214 for two in their second innings, looking to knock off their 386-run deficit with minimal damage.

Opener and vice-captain Kraigg Brathwaite, unbeaten overnight on 79, top-scored with 91 while Shai Hope moved from 24 at the start to 37, but none of the Windies batsmen could muster the required commitment to stretch the contest into the fifth day.

Tim Southee returns to face the West Indies in Hamilton in the only change to the New Zealand squad who dominated the first Test in Wellington.

Southee, who replaces George Worker in the squad, missed the first Test following the birth of his first child.

It went downhill for West Indies when Brathwaite's resistance was broken during the morning session.

Brathwaite had moved into the 90s and was in sight of his seventh Test hundred when he misjudging the length of one from left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner, played back and was adjudged lbw on review.

Captain Kane Williamson described Blundell as brilliant in his debut.

As well as missing the second Test, which begins in Hamilton on Saturday, Holder has been fined 60 per cent of his match fee.

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.
