New Zealand finally tasted victory in the Caribbean after being defeated in 2 T20Is and 2 ODIs in a row by crushing margins. The visitors bounced back in style in the Third ODI at St Kitts by defeating West Indies by 88 runs to keep the 5-match series alive.
This has easily been a tour New Zealand would like to forget as soon as possible – yes, we are saying this even before the matches are over, for such has been the dominance of West Indies right from the beginning of the first T20 game.
Sounds weird, but West Indies are at last dominating a series, albeit against a weaker, under-par New Zealand side. The Caribbeans shouldn’t be complaining though, for this will give them the confidence to do well in tougher challenges.
West Indies crushed New Zealand for a third time in a row. This time it was in the rain curtailed 1st ODI at the Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica on Thursday with the hosts cruising to a 9-wicket victory.
West Indies made a 2-0 cleansweep over an injury struck New Zealand in the T20I Series in Florida on Sunday. Windies crushed the Kiwis by a huge margin of 61 runs in the 2nd T20I at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill.
West Indies crushed New Zealand by 56 runs in the first T20I at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill (Florida, USA). New Zealand had a terrible day in the field as three of its players – Ross Taylor, Jacob Oram and Ronnie Hira, all were laid low with injuries.
