New Zealand beat West Indies by 119 runs in final T20, sweep series


New Zealand crushed the West Indies by 119 runs in the final Twenty20 in Mount Maunganui today to sweep the 3 match series.

Colin Munro with a rollicking 104 off 53 deliveries, became the first player to hit three centuries in international Twenty20 cricket as New Zealand posted an imposing 243 for five which was their highest Twenty20 total.

The West Indies reply began disastrously with openers Chadwick Walton and Chris Gayle out without scoring in Tim Southee’s opening over.

Their innings folded at 124 for nine in 16.3 overs with Shai Hope unable to bat after being injured while fielding. It ended a disappointing tour for the West Indies with New Zealand winning both Tests, the three one-day internationals and two Twenty20s with one match washed out.
