New Zealand vs West Indies Visitors morale high at start of Test series

Central Districts batsman George Worker has replaced Tim Southee in the Black Caps squad for the first test against the West Indies in Wellington.

New Zealand selector Gavin Larsen said Worker, who has never played a test, provides extra batting cover.

It will be New Zealand's first test in eight months which could put them at a disadvantage compared to the tourists' who have been busy in the test game in recent months.

The Quad Series returns to New Zealand and Australia in September, with the Silver Ferns taking on England in Auckland as part of a double-header with the Australia tackling South Africa.

The home side will have only one debutant on Friday, as Tom Blundell steps into the wicketkeeper's slot in place of the injured B.J. Watling.

Brathwaite had been to New Zealand before and liked the pacier pitches.

The question is, can the Windies show that they have the goods to make it back, and can they best New Zealand, in New Zealand, to signal their intention?

The pitch was pretty green on the eve of the match, but that can often be misleading at this ground.

Despite Ferguson bagging seven wickets for New Zealand A against the West Indies earlier this week, Williamson insisted that Henry has been chosen for the national team since he has been playing exceedingly well for a long time now.

"But sometimes you've got to give credit to the opposition".

Without strike bowler Southee, and a lack of experience among the New Zealand middle order batsmen, West Indies captain Jason Holder sees the key to success as the swift removal of senior batsmen Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor. He is a different bowler to Lockie but has been bowling with good pace and does tend to move the ball well so it's exciting for Matt.

Trent Boult seems to relish bowling at the Basin Reserve: he has 27 wickets in six matches at an average of 28.07, including a 10-for against West Indies. I think once we get on the park and play as one, I think the performances will come.
