Earlier, the Black Caps, overnight 232-4, ground out 55 runs for the loss of three wickets off 28 overs in a slow-scoring morning session at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium to reach 287 for seven at lunch.
But Kane Williamson and Dean Brownlie shared a stand of 40 for the sixth wicket to rebuild the innings. Doug Bracewell scored 39 to post a respectable total.
