Commentary

New Zealand won by 4 wkts | New Zealand Vs West Indies Live Score, 2nd T20I

That ends our coverage for this series. The Indians are already there in New Zealand and the first ODI is on 19th January. Do join us for all the action from that game. Until then take care! Cya!
McCullum: 'It was a hard fought win and they came hard at us. Impressed with the way Ross and Luke played. Both were completely different sort of innings, but we needed that partnership to get us past the line. We are going ok, we played some good consistent cricket. Credit to West Indies for squaring the ODI series but we were the better side in the T20Is. We need to continue in the same way in the series against India.'
Bravo: 'Congratulations to Brendon and his team. We did better than the last game but we were 20 runs short. It's been a good tour for me personally and we had a good ODI series. It is good to see the youngsters come in and perform. We will look forward to the World T20 and hopefully we will have a fit 15 players for selection.'
Ronchi: 'It was amazing to contribute to the win. It feels good to get some runs and credit to Rosco for sticking around. Batting got easier as the game went on. We just thought that we should hang around and the runs will come.'
Ronchi is the Man of the Match for his knock of 51 off 28 balls.
Taylor: 'We kept losing wickets at wrong times but Ronchs came out and played some attacking cricket. It was good that Neesham finished it off but credit to Ronchs for the way he played. We will enjoy tonight before looking forward to the India series.'
This win for the hosts sets up the series against India beautifully. They have dominated throughout the series and are looking formidable in all forms of the game. They will look to carry forward this momentum into the India series.
The West Indies bowlers were not supported by their fielders. They put down four chances at the start and were sloppy throughout. Narine was once again the pick of the bowlers and was well supported by Russell. The others were not effective and went for plenty of runs.
New Zealand clinch the T20I series 2-0. They started off well with Ryder going berserk but West Indies came back well to have the hosts reeling at 5 for 79. Ronchi joined Taylor out in the middle and the duo added 72 runs for the sixth wicket. The wicket-keeper carried his fine form from the previous game to notch up his maiden T20I fifty. Taylor played the perfect second fiddle in the partnership. Neesham came down and finished things off in a hurry.
