It is over Brathwaite is caught! What a game this has been. After a rocky start losing both openers in the first innings for golden ducks, a fantastic knock from the skipper of 148 allowed the Black Caps to 291/8. In reply, West Indies found themselves 20-2 however Hetmyer and Gayle started to get them back on track with a partnership of 122. When Hetmyer fell however, so did the rest of the West Indies team with 5 wickets falling for just 22 runs. However, Brathwaite played a truly outstanding innings taking the game right to the wire by scoring an unbelievable 101. The game came down to Brathwaite or Thomas requiring 5 runs to win the game, and with one last heave Brathwaite sent the ball to long on, where unbelievably Boult was waiting to take the catch to win the game for New Zealand. What a game and what an innings from Brathwaite, he will feel so hard done by but that is cricket and New Zealand take the two points in the end.
