New Zealand won a rain-affected first Twenty20 international against West Indies by 12 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis method at Windsor Park.
Light rain was falling for much of the contest and 90 minutes were lost as the game was reduced to 18 overs a side, with the Black Caps ultimately completing just 15.
The West Indies made 132 for eight as Andre Fletcher registered a half-century, yet Tim Southee, Trent Boult and Corey Anderson took two wickets apiece to limit the home side.
Captain Brendon McCullum top-scored for New Zealand with 40 and despite Darren Sammy claiming 3-22, the Windies could not edge themselves ahead.
Congrats to the @BLACKCAPS lads solid performance all round

Jimmy Neesham hit a six and a four off consecutive deliveries in the second over of the reply but was bowled via an inside-edge by Krishmar Santokie.
That brought McCullum to the crease and he went about upping the rate in typical fashion, smashing Santokie for a six and two fours in three balls.
Kane Williamson had not seen a great deal of the strike and scored just 19 off 18 balls when a Sammy delivery looped up off the face off the bat and the tall skipper had to reach for a caught and bowled.
Ross Taylor hammered 18 off the 11th over as New Zealand moved to within touching distance – although McCullum was gone for 40 when he did not quite get hold of a Sammy ball and Dwayne Smith took the catch.
Anderson was next to fall for 15, miscuing a Sammy delivery high into the air for Sunil Narine, but the rain got stronger and New Zealand claimed the win on 117 for four with Taylor 28 not out.
