Wellington: New Zealand's Ross Taylor tormented the West Indies' bowlers on Wednesday, making the most of an early let-off to score a century on the first day of the second Test as the home side reached 307 for six.

The former skipper, who scored an unbeaten double century in the series opener, was dismissed shortly before close of play at Wellington's Basin Reserve for 129 when Shane Shillingford pulled off a diving catch. (Taylor in 'best mindset' ever)
