The Black Caps, on the other hand did not have a great day on the field with as many as three drop catches, as even the bowlers failed to do anything extra-ordinary.

And expect for a fine century by Scott styris in the first innings, nothing went the Kiwis' way on Thursday.

I am wondering in the second paragrah, whether scott styris have made century or just he expected. And, who is `Kiwis' in this paragraph.

    I suspect that the word should be "except" (not "expect"). "Kiwis" is the nickname given to New Zealanders.

    It's clearly wrong. It should be "except" to read as "And except for a fine century by Scott styris in the first innings, nothing went the Kiwis' way on Thursday. "

    Kiwis = Inhabitants of NewZealand (colloq, I presume)
