(Cricket) Windies in the back foot
(12-12 14:46)

Kirk Edwards and Marlon Samuels made half centuries to guide the West Indies to 158 for 4 wickets in reply to New Zealand first innings of 441 at stumps on the second day of the second cricket test in Wellington, New Zealand.
On a day when rain restricted play to 62 overs, Edwards and Samuels showed resilience at the top of the order, though the late dismissal of Shivnarine Chanderpaul (6) left the match tilted in the home team's favor.
After a rain-delayed start, New Zealand took only 25 overs to add 134 runs to its overnight total of 307 for 6 as wicketkeeper B.J. Watling made 65 to anchor a productive tail ender contribution.—AP
