Bridgetown: Kane Wiliamson and Brendon McCullum lifted New Zealand to 123 for three, a lead of 99, at stumps on the third day of the third and final Test against West Indies at Kensington Oval on Saturday.

Both batsmen had their moments of good fortune but Williamson's unbeaten 58 and the captain's 23 not out have given their team a fighting chance going into the fourth day on Sunday of posting a competitive target in this series decider.
