New Zealand crushed the West Indies by 10 wickets in the second Test on Monday to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in their three-match series.

Set just 36 to win, New Zealand cruised to their victory target in less than nine overs with Hamish Marshall making an unbeaten 23 and Jamie How nine not out.

The West Indies had started the day on 118-4 in their second innings, needing another 62 just to make New Zealand bat again.

They managed to avoid an innings defeat but added just 97 runs for the loss of their last six wickets to leave the Kiwis chasing a small total on the fourth day at the Basin Reserve.
