Windies beat New Zealand

ROSEAU, Dominica - New Zealand's batting collapsed under the pressure of an ever-increasing scoring rate as the West Indies claimed a 39-run victory in the second and final Twenty20 International on Sunday.

Replying to the hosts' total of 6-165, the Black Caps lost their last six wickets for 13 runs to be dismissed for 126 off 19.1 overs at Windsor Park in Dominica.

The series finished 1-1, after New Zealand had taken the three-matches Test series 2-1.

Kane Williamson, New Zealand's captain for the match, top-scored with 37 at the top of the order, but it was his dismissal to Kieron Pollard and the demise of Ross Taylor (21) off the bowling of the wily Sunil Narine that effectively spelt the end for the tourists.

Narine and fellow spinner Samuel Badree kept all the batsmen in check, their combined eight overs costing only 39 runs for three wickets.

Left-arm fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell, who replaced Krishmar Santokie in the final eleven from the team that lost the rain-affected first match on Saturday, finished with three for 28 as New Zealand's lower-order hit and hoped with an increasing level of desperation towards the end.
