Four Runs
FOUR! Best to Neesham. Short, down leg side on the back foot hooking, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Great finishing from Jimmy Neesham. He was unaffected by the pressure and hit with great power.

New Zealand were wobbling at 79-5 when Luke Ronchi came in and played a match winning gem of an innings. Ross Taylor played a clever anchor role at the other end and when he fell Jimmy Neesham applied the finishing touches.

West Indies were 20 runs short of par when they batted. They fought hard in the field with quality bowling from Andre Russell, Nikita Miller and Sunil Narine but paid the price for missing chances.

Their tour of New Zealand comes to an end. They lost the Test series 2-0. Drew the ODI series and lost the T20s 2-0. They were depleted and struggled to put together a complete performance. New Zealand now look forward to the ODI series against India which will be a stern challenge.
