New Delhi(Hamilton), 6/12: The New Zealand Men’s Cricket Team defeated their West Indies counterparts by an innings and 134 runs at Hamilton. With the win, the Kiwis added one more milestone to their legacy, extending their unbeaten streak in test matches at home to 14. The Kiwis lost the toss but were invited to bat first by the Caribbeans, and it proved profitable for them as the Kiwis went on to score a massive 519 at the loss of 7 wickets, after skipper Ken Williamson scored a career-high 251, as he scored the third double hundred in his test career. The West Indians were shaky as they crumbled for 138. They were asked to follow on and middle-order batsman Jermaine Blackwood put up a fight along with Alzarri Joseph, for a partnership of 155. Alzarri Joseph was dismissed at 86 and Blackwood was dismissed as the 9th wicket, after scoring an impressive 104 runs.

Talking about the victory, New Zealand captain, Ken Williamson didn’t take the credit but rather lauded the team for their efforts. While answering a question about their impressive home win streak, the Kiwi batsman said, “To be honest, I didn’t know that was the case, but it’s great. It was a really good performance for us to put together collectively. But we’re not getting ahead of ourselves. It was nice we were able to put in a strong performance and for us, it’s about trying to improve little bits at a time in each game.”
