The West Indies struck early on Saturday to remove danger man Nathan Astle with the first ball he faced, leaving New Zealand on 248 for six at lunch on the second day of the second and final Test.

 

The start of play was delayed by an hour as a shower swept across the Queen's Park, but Pedro Collins struck with the first ball of his first over, trapping Astle leg before wicket without playing a shot to a delivery that seamed sharply back in to the right hander, who had scored 69.

 

Collins, on four for 48 at lunch, had removed opener Mark Richardson and Daniel Vettori late on Friday to grasp back the initiative from the tourists.
