Batting first at the Basin Reserve, the Windies were skittled for just 134 runs, before New Zealand made 520/9 in reply. The tourists were then bowled out for 319 to give the Black Caps an opening win by an innings and 67 runs.

Speaking to media after the match, Holder said that his side couldn't allow themselves to be dismissed again so easily.

"We didn't help ourselves on day one," he said.

"To get bowled out on the first day of any Test match doesn't really put you in a good position going into the remaining days of a Test game."

"I thought we batted well in the second innings, but we gave ourselves too much to do after the first display."

New Zealand stormed to an innings and 67 run victory against the West Indies in Wellington.
