Kieran Powell was trapped lbw by Tim Southee for 21 after an opening partnership of 46 with Kirk Edwards and then Darren Bravo, who played a massive part in saving the First Test with a double century in the second innings, departed for just four when edging Corey Anderson to Peter Fulton at second slip.

Anderson, the 22-year-old left-armer in just his fifth Test, then picked up his second wicket when Edwards got a leading edge to Hamish Rutherford at cover after hitting six fours in a 74-ball 55.

There was still time for Trent Boult to get in on the act in an extended evening session with veteran stalwart Shivnarine Chanderpaul picking out Anderson at cover after making six.

Marlon Samuels played fluently in hitting nine fours in an unbeaten half century but the men from the Caribbean still need 84 to avoid the follow-on.

The home side scored rapidly before lunch with Tim Southee (21 off 14 balls) and Ish Sodhi (27 off 35 balls) offering support for BJ Watling before both fell to Tino Best who finished with 4-110.

Watling made his sixth Test half-century before being final man out for 65 after an entertaining 10th wicket partnership of 58 with Boult who blasted five boundaries and two sixes in his unbeaten 38.
