AUCKLAND, Reuter: An unbroken sixth wicket stand of 78 between Gordon Greenidge and Jeff Dujon carried the West Indies to a strong position at tea on the second day of the second cricket test against New Zealand.

Coming together when Gus Logie was caught by Martin Crowe off Richard Hadlee for 34 with the total on 219, they pushed the score to 297 at tea. Greenidge was 153 and Dujon 39.

The closest escape came immediately after lunch when Greenidge, still on his lunchtime 131, swept New Zealand Captain Jeremy Coney High to Ewen Chatfield at fine leg. Chatfield picked up the flight late and never looked like holding the catch.
