29.5
Run Out
OUT! Run Out. Narine to Mills. Off break short, off stump on the back foot reverse sweeping, mis-timed to backward point, direct hit by Holder. A suitably ugly way to finish a poor performance. Mills played a cramped reverse pull that dribbled to Holder at backward point. There was never a single on. Especially when Holder took aim and left Mills yards short at the bowler's end with a direct hit.

West Indies have squared the series at 2-2 and turned the formbook upside down. They were depleted and had comfortably lost the previous two games but they came out with all guns blazing on a good pitch for one day cricket. Centuries from Kirk Edwards and Dwayne Bravo took them to an imposing 363/4.

New Zealand were never in the runchase. Nikita Miller ripped through the middle order to return figures of 4-45. The T20 series starts on Saturday and it will be a compelling contest between two evenly matched teams. The Kiwis need to put today's horror show behind them. The key for West Indies as always is consistency. They can beat anyone when they click like they did today.
