The touring New Zealanders dismissed a Jamaica Select XI for 90 to claim a 123-run win in their three-day warm-up game at the Trelawny Multiplex.

Resuming the final day on 65 for seven, the New Zealenders reached 132 for nine before declaring their second innings.

Ross Taylor finished unbeaten on 55 in 62 balls before the tourists declared, choosing to get as much bowling practice as they could.

They made good use of it with five bowlers taking wickets as only Paul Palmer (52) and Horace Miller (14) reached double figures.

Mark Craig returned four for eight, Kane Williamson two for 25, Trent Boult two for 33, Tim Southee one for four and Neil Wagner one for 13.

The Jamaican side was dismissed in just 32.5 overs, after which New Zealand decided to bowl on to gain further practice ahead of the first Test at Sabina Park which begins on 8th June.
