When you find yourself in a difficult situation, you are continuously on the lookout for ways to get out of it.

We were able to vanquish our opponents and go away with the victory after putting in some of our best performances. Given Mark Chapman’s absence from cricket for an extended period of time, the squad was really happy with his performance against the Windies on Saturday.

“It was the tiniest of margins that determined the outcome of the game.” During the post-match presentation, Southee extended his appreciation to Star Sports, which served as the game’s broadcast partner.

“We had wanted to get off to a quick start with the ball, but our middle-order recovery, along with Mitch Santner’s outstanding bowling, was a good sign for us,” said the skipper. “We had hoped to get off to a quick start with the ball,” he said.

In their first innings, New Zealand amassed a total of 164 for six.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ravichandran Ashwin each took two wickets in the first test, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar took one.


“We have set high goals for ourselves and have achieved some success in recent months, despite the fact that working across disciplines and other impediments is always a challenge.” Southee says Daryl didn’t leave himself enough runs in the final innings due to his considerable bowling practise and eagerness to bowl.

The second game of the three-game series, scheduled for Friday night, will serve as a benchmark.
