Auckland: Darren Sammy made an unbeaten 43 from 27 balls to help the West Indies to a two-wicket win over New Zealand in the series-opening limited-overs international on Thursday, helping the tourists rebound from their 2-0 Test series defeat.

The win, completed in only 27.3 overs when the West Indies reached 157 for 8 in reply to New Zealand's 156, overshadowed the return to international cricket after two years of New Zealand opener Jesse Ryder, who made a five-ball duck and dropped a catch.
