New Zealand cricketers in strong position in Napier

5:42 am on 21 December 2008

The New Zealand cricket side is 145 for two heading into the third day of the second test against the West Indies in Napier.

New Zealand opener Tim McIntosh is on 62 and is accompanied by Ross Taylor who is on four.

Yesterday seamer Iain O'Brien claimed six wickets as New Zealand bowled the visitors out for 307.

O'Brien took a career-best six for 75 after tearing through the lower order and wrapping up the West Indies innings midway through the first session.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul was left stranded on 126 not out.
