AUCKLAND - A quick-fire innings by wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi and four wickets to Nathan McCullum have helped the Black Caps to an 81-run win over the West Indies in the opening Twenty20 cricket international.

The tourists, chasing 190 for victory in Auckland on Saturday night, limped to 8-108.

The result was a big turnaround from the 203-run defeat the Black Caps suffered in the final one-dayer between the sides in Hamilton on Wednesday.

The West Indies couldn't repeat their batting performance, with Andre Fletcher's 23 their best score, while the home side tightened up their bowling.

Nathan McCullum celebrated his 50th appearance in a T20 with 4-24 and he was aided by some excellent catching.
