The home team made 441 in their first innings and removed the West Indies for 193 and 175.

Trent Boult was the chief destroyer for New Zealand, taking career best figures of 6-40 in the West Indies first innings and 4-40 in the second.

After being forced to follow on, the West Indies made a solid start to their second innings, reaching 75 for one before falling apart.

Darren Bravo, who rescued the first Test in Dunedin with a double century, was out for a duck.

Apart from openers Kieran Powell (36) and Kirk Edwards (35) the only other innings of note was an unbeaten 31 from veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

The victory was New Zealand's first Test win in more than a year.
