Windies keep series alive after fighting hard on Day 1 of deciding Hamilton Test

Wellington, Dec 19 : Denesh Ramdin and Shivnarine Chanderpaul halted a batting collapse with a sixth-wicket partnership of 200 in Hamilton today to give West Indies a shot at a series-tying victory against New Zealand in the third and final Test match, according to reports.

According to, at stumps on day one, the visitors were 289 for six, with Chanderpaul 94 not out and Darren Sammy on nought.

Ramdin brought up his fourth test century late in the day by slashing Trent Boult over the slips cordon and leapt in the air in delight, the report said.

He reached 107 from 148 balls, striking 18 fours, before edging Corey Anderson to wicketkeeper BJ Watling, the report added.

The Windies looked like folding again on a good batting wicket midway through the middle session before Ramdin and Chanderpaul displayed spirit and substance to thwart the home team, the report further said.

After being soundly placed at lunch at 71 for one, the tourists fell apart in the first hour of the second session, losing four wickets for nine runs in the space of 5.3 overs to hand the hosts at Seddon Park the upper hand, the report mentioned.
