Black Caps ease to 66-run ODI win

Black Caps ease to 66-run ODI win

The match got underway on time but forecast rain arrived early in the afternoon and kept players off the field for five hours, with the match eventually shortened to 23 overs a side. He finished with 3-18 from his allotted five overs, producing absolute rippers to bowl both Chadwick Walton and Jason Mohammed with yorkers.

Under the Duckworth Lewis Stern system the West Indies target was re-adjusted to 166 however they were never in the hunt losing wickets at regular intervals and at one stage were nine for five.

After threatening to break Zimbabwe's all-time low ODI score of 35 against Sri Lanka in 2004, the Caribbean side made it back to a respectable total as they reached 9-99 off their 23 overs.

The hosts found themselves in further trouble at 26 for 3, with Colin Munro undone by a short ball, before Tom Latham and Ross Taylor rebuilt, much like they did earlier last month in India.

Captain Jason Holder was the lone batsman to offer any real resistance, top scoring with 34.

The Kiwis had been teetering at 3-83 after 19 overs when increasingly steady rain first forced the players from the field just before 12.30pm, with the game eventually restarting almost five hours later.

Taylor went on to make 47 off 54 balls, which included six boundaries, while Henry Nicholls smashed a quickfire 18 as New Zealand finished on 131/4.

One woman told her story to local Tunisian radio station Mosaique FM: "When we arrived here, we found the situation really chaotic".

The return of big-hitting opener Chris Gayle, who missed the second ODI and played a limited part in the first, due to illness didn't help the tourists.

Matt Henry got the Kiwis off to the best possible start in removing Chris Gayle for four with the last ball of the first over, caught at point by Colin Munro.

Latham survived a review aganinst a leg before appeal off his first ball, but steadied the New Zealand ship with Ross Taylor with a fifty-run stand during which a slight drizzle ensued.

Holder was gutted to have lost again, and said: "We lost wickets upfront and couldn't recover".

It got worse for the Black Caps with Neil Broom trudging back to the dressing room shortly after for two. He tried to cut one through third man, but got a thick edge through to Gayle in the slips off Cottrell.

Windies end their tour with three T20Is starting in Nelson on Friday.
