Toss: West Indies won the toss and opted to field.
The West Indies have rejected any suggestion of a Test hangover going into the opening one-day international against a New Zealand side bolstered by the return of Jesse Ryder.
Darren Sammy scored an unbeaten 43 to help West Indies chase 157 in the 28th over with two wickets in hand.
Gayle remains sidelined with a hamstring injury while Ryder has been in devastating form in New Zealand domestic cricket ahead of his return to the international arena after a 22-month self-imposed exile.
