The Black Caps continue to struggle in their tour match against the West Indies President's XI in Antigua.
After being dismissed for just 149 in their innings, the Black Caps have struggled in the field with the hosts moving through to 299/7 at stumps.
Commentator Bryan Waddle says it was another day on the receiving end apart from a 20 minute period when Daniel Vettori grabbed three quick wickets to create some momentary panic.
Vettori was New Zealand's leading bowler with figures of four for 48 from 20 overs.
But it didn't last long with Shivnarine Chanderpaul holding steady to produce a sizeable advantage.
Black Caps captain Ross Taylor says despite how they're faring, the match has been good preparation for the first test.
"These Duke balls are totally different to, they are the same English Dukes, but different. I'm not sure why but we're getting a good go, both with bat facing it, and with the ball getting to know what we can do with it."
Neil Wagner made a promising debut picking up two wickets but Tarun Nethula was expensive and lacked rhythm.
The first test begins on Thursday.
