WI look to NZ weak link
The West Indies are hoping to take advantage of an exhausted New Zealand attack in the second Test starting Wednesday after the home side's bowlers sent down more than 200 overs without a break in the series opener.
The visitors -- helped by wet weather -- battled to a draw in the first Test in Dunedin on Saturday after being forced to follow-on 396 runs behind but Darren Bravo mounted a stubborn rearguard action, top-scoring in West Indies' second innings with 218.
New Zealand, who looked certain to wrap up victory on the final day, were left frustrated after rain washed out the final session of play, leaving them an agonising 33 runs short of their first win for more than a year.
Skipper Brendon McCullum must ponder how to manage his strike force in the second Test in Wellington while West Indies skipper Darren Sammy believes his team could benefit from the New Zealand bowlers' fatigue.
"Their bowlers toiled and that's a lot of yards in the legs," Sammy said. "I guess my bowlers will be much fresher than their bowlers so hopefully we can go into the second Test and they'll be a bit tired and we will be a fresher team."
