Commentary (New Zealand 1st Innings)

New Zealand now host India for 5 ODIs and 2 T20Is, starting from the 19th of January, 2014. Much deserved time off for West Indies to address their issues after a difficult tour. So that's it from all of us here. Until next time, it's good bye and take care!

Luke Ronchi was adjudged the Man of the Match for his brilliant knock that sealed the match for the Kiwis.

Not the ideal end to the tour for West Indies but they will take positives out of this tour. They drew the ODI series 2-2 after losing the Test series. They missed the services of Pollard and Gayle, Sammy, their regulars in the T20 format as they lost the T20 series 2-0. New Zealand will not complain, they played better cricket and have done well as they look to host India at home.

New Zealand got off to decent start thanks to Ryder but fell later as West Indies kept taking wickets at regular intervals. Ronchi and Taylor then batted superbly adding 68 runs to ensure the Kiwis got closer to the total. Taylor was out just before the win. Ronchi hit his maiden T20I fifty ensuring they won the match and the series.

Neesham finishes things off in style for the Kiwis. He hit 14 runs in the six balls he faced of Best. They win the match by four wickets and take the series 2-0. West Indies got to the score of 159, thanks to the partnership between Ramdin and Fletcher after they lost quick wickets at the top. Nathan McCullum was the pick of the bowlers for the Kiwis. Ramdin hit his maiden T20I fifty helping West Indies recover.
