Colin de Grandhomme contributed with the bat and ball

In the absence of BJ Watling, there was an added responsibility on Colin de Grandhomme's shoulders to provide some runs in the lower middle-order and ensure that New Zealand's tactics of going in with just three front-line bowlers didn't backfire.
His maiden Test century, which came off 71 balls and was the fastest against the Windies in Tests, second-fastest by a Kiwi batsman and the 10th fastest in Test history, put New Zealand in complete command of the game. He came in with the score at 272/5 and left when the lead was almost 300.
