Stuff – The West Indies won’t claim that they’ve worked out Neil Wagner.
- But coach Stuart Law thinks he’s seen enough signs that they can dent the effectiveness of New Zealand’s most productive test bowler of recent seasons.
- Wagner destroyed the West Indian batting in New Zealand’s first test win in Wellington with his trademark short-pitched attack, taking 7-39 and finishing with match figures of 9-141.
- “I think we combated him very well in the second innings,” Law said on Thursday ahead of the second cricket test starting at Hamilton’s Seddon Park on Saturday.
- “You’re going to have some really good days, you’re going to have some really bad days,” Law said.
- “We put down day one of the last test to one of those ones that didn’t quite work out for us, but we got it right in the second innings.
