Joshua Da Silva’s impressive half-century on debut did little to diminish West Indies’ pain as they crumbled to an innings and 12-run defeat to the Black Caps inside the first hour of the penultimate day of the second Test here Monday.

Wicketkeeper/batsman, Joshua Da Silva, celebrated his maiden Test half-century at the Bason Reserve on Monday’s penultimate day.

Resuming on 244 for six, West Indies lost captain Jason Holder to the sixth ball of the morning after he had added only one to his overnight 60, signalling the death knell as they tumbled to 317 all out in their second innings at the Basin Reserve.

Amid the carnage, the 22-year-old Da Silva managed to take some plaudits, converting his overnight 25 into 57, an innings that consumed 84 balls and 2-½ hours, and included six fours.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
