New Zealand beat West Indies by 5 wickets

Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados

That is it from this series then! Tom Latham is handed the trophy and he poses for the cameras along with his teammates. Now then, New Zealand have their next assignment against Australia. The three-match ODI series will start on 6th September at 9.50 am IST (4.20 am GMT) while West Indies have a month-long break before they tour to Australia. So, there is plenty of cricketing action across the globe to keep you busy. Keep checking the schedule page. From here, it is goodbye and cheers!
Tom Latham, the skipper of New Zealand is also the Man of the Match (69 runs off 75 balls). He says that it was nice and it feels good to make a contribution. Further says that the game was built up on partnership and everyone performed well. Adds that Windies were really good as they were 170 for none and reached the 300 run mark. Mentions that their plan was to play in the Powerplay as the boundary was small and the boys played really well. Finally says that it feels nice to perform and win the series.
Nicholas Pooran, the skipper of West Indies says it's a tough one to digest as at the halfway stage they were in the game. Adds the bowlers did really well, could have taken a couple of wickets in the Powerplay. It was hard to bowl on the wet surface. Shares that as a batter, they had a chat and it was a plan to play Southee and Boult carefully. Says he is happy that Kevin Sinclair and Yannic Cariah are getting opportunities. Applauds Kyle Mayers performance. Tells that the players showed a fight and he is happy with the performance. He just tells the players to trust their ability.
Mitchell Santner wins the Player of the Series award. He says that it feels nice and this was a great game. Says that bowling first was good for us as they restricted them in Powerplay but they caught up in the end. Finishes by saying that it was a good wicket and their players did really well.
...Presentation coming up...
Earlier, the top three of the Windies showed their presence as Hope scored a fifty while Mayers scored a wonderful ton and Pooran's quick 91 runs in 55 balls helped West Indies get past the 300 mark. In reply, New Zealand chased down the target pretty comfortably. West Indies bowlers will be disappointed to not take this game till the deep.
West Indies had an ample amount of runs to bowl at but as we saw at the end of the Windies' batting, the pitch tend to ease out for the batters. New Zealand won the toss and made the perfect decision to bowl as things panned out perfectly. West Indies could have been more consistent but were a bit wayward with the deliveries. Nicholas Pooran will feel they had a very good chance to seal the series but have given away the opportunity.
New Zealand win their first-ever ODI series on the Caribbean soil. Recently they did in the T20I series and now they make yet another history, It was a commanding performance from them! The Kiwis were chasing a big score but there was not any sign of pressure on their face. It was a very measured chase from New Zealand. They kept the scoreboard near the required run rate and throughout the chase, there wasn't much sweat dropped. From the top five, four batters scored fifty. Once Latham and Daryl Mitchell got out, there was a slight hope for the Windies but James Neesham played a quick cameo to take his team over the line.

New Zealand's top order fumbled a bit as well but Finn Allen was the star with the bat who scored 96 runs as the visitors reached a par total of 212 runs. The pace duo of Trent Boult and Tim Southee ran through the opposition's lineup to claim 7 wickets. They would hope to win this series on Caribbean soil.  Whose side are you on? Toss and team news are around the corner.

We are back for the chase. The players are out in the middle. Martin Guptill and Finn Allen to open for the Kiwis. Kyle Mayers to bowl first.
... The Run Chase ...
Right then! The pitch got better in the end to bat and the slower balls are working well to make an impact for the bowlers. Still, this is a very tight contest and the team who plays the best will win the series. The T20I went the visitors' way, will it be the same for them? We will find out soon. Stay tuned for the chase.
Kyle Mayers is here for a quick word. He says that he feels lucky and he thinks he batted well. Adds that after losing early wickets in the last game they were more careful in this one and they started slowly in the first powerplay as the plan was to tackle Boult and Southee and they did good in the end. Says that he feels very happy after his century and he's glad the crowd enjoyed it. Finishes by saying that they need to do well with the ball and defend the score.
A bit frustrating outing from the Kiwi bowlers! They didn't break the stand early on and allowed the opposition to get away. Once they got their wickets, they then got the hammering from Nicholas Pooran. They took wickets at the other end but Pooran alone made a huge lot of difference to the score. The slower balls helped them mainly to keep under control but now have to chase a huge score.
What an innings it was from Pooran! An innings that helped West Indies end on a high. The start though was very slow from the hosts. They started slowly but Mayers took the charge soon later. Hope played second fiddle to him. The duo notched a 173 opening stand with Hope scoring a fifty and Mayers scoring a wonderful ton. They fell in quick succession but it was then Pooran's inning that helped them get past 290. Pooran was at his best after quite a few innings and this could potentially be a game-changing knock. Not to forget that little cameo from Alzarri Joseph that helped them get past 300.
An excellent batting performance from West Indies! A performance that was dearly needed by them and most importantly bat the full quota.

Update - 12.29 am IST (6.59 pm GMT on the previous day) - We have good news. The covers are coming off as the rain has stopped completely. The match will resume at 12.40 am IST (7.10 pm GMT on the previous day).
Update - 12.19 am IST (6.49 pm GMT on the previous day) - The drizzle is still on here at Barbados but you folks can switch the tabs and watch out The Hundred between Manchester Originals and Northern Superchargers. Manchester Originals are 122/2 halfway through the game and Northern Superchargers will have to chase down a huge total out there if don't take quick wickets.
Update - 11.56 pm IST (6.26 pm GMT) - The rain has arrived. The conditions were a bit overcast and it became very dark in the last moment or so. It has started to drizzle now and the covers are coming on. The whole ground is not covered so that means the groundstaff are expecting it to pass away. Let's hope it is a short break. Stay tuned for further updates.

We are all set for the action. The players are out in the middle. Shai Hope and Kyle Mayers are the openers for West Indies. Trent Boult to start with the ball. Before the start, the Windies players will take the knee in support of the 'BLM' movement.
Pitch Report - Samuel Badree thinks there will be a bit of rain. Adds it is a new pitch but looks similar to the other games. Tells there is a grass cover, the bowlers will have more bounce. Shares the new ball bowlers will enjoy but the batters will have runs on offer as well.
Kevin Sinclair is up for a chat. He says that he is happy to get this opportunity. Adds that the skipper gives him a lot of confidence as he lets him know what the team requires from him. Tells that he just tries to be patient and work on his basics. Shares that they just need to focus on their game and do the basics right.
Nicholas Pooran says that they wanted to bowl but they will try and put good pressure with the bat first and do their best. Further says that this is an important game and they will hope to win the series. Finally says that they will play with the same team.
Tom Latham the skipper of New Zealand says that they will bowl first as it's a fresh wicket. Further says that they can put the ball to work well and bat afterward. Says that it was worrying about how the last order of West Indies performed well the other day and Finn Allen was great. Mentions that will hope to put good performance with the ball. Finally says about Kane Williamson's injury and Ferguson is in for Phillips.
New Zealand (Playing XI) - Martin Guptill, Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Tom Latham (C/WK), Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson (In for Glenn Phillips), Trent Boult.
West Indies (Unchanged Playing XI) - Shai Hope (WK), Kyle Mayers, Shamarh Brooks, Brandon King, Keacy Carty, Nicholas Pooran (C), Jason Holder, Yannic Cariah, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Kevin Sinclair.
TOSS - New Zealand have won the toss and elected to BOWL first.
New Zealand's top order fumbled a bit as well but Finn Allen was the star with the bat who scored 96 runs as the visitors reached a par total of 212 runs. The pace duo of Trent Boult and Tim Southee ran through the opposition's lineup to claim 7 wickets. They would hope to win this series on Caribbean soil.  Whose side are you on? Toss and team news are around the corner.
