New Zealand defeated West Indies by 2-0 in the three match T20I series and registered yet another series win over the visitors in this format.
In the first match, New Zealand registered a five-wicket win in a rain affected game. Their bowlers Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson led from front as the latter picked up a five-wicket haul and in the batting debutant David Conway and Jimmy Neesham did well. In the second match it was the Glenn Phillips show as the right hander smashed 108 runs and David Conway also did well with an unbeaten fifty.
On the other hand, West Indies' youngsters Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell and Brandon King once again disappointed and couldn't do anything in the batting. Captain Kieron Pollard performed well but he didn't have any support and in the bowling his bowlers bowled without any control and overall it was a poor show from Windies.
