Commentary

NZ won by 159 runs | New Zealand Vs West Indies Live Score, 3rd ODI

Needless to say, it has been a rip-roaring start to 2014. With New Zealand bouncing back to get on an even keel with the West Indies, the series is hurtling towards an explosive finish. Do join us for the fourth ODI at Nelson on Saturday. Until then, take care, adios.
Corey Anderson: 'Feels, pretty good. We were one down and it's good to win. Out there I was thinking to get singles, construct the innings. But then, I started hitting the boundaries and got going. I actually wasn't aware of the record. I enjoyed batting with Ryder.'
Corey Anderson is the Man of the Match for his record breaking fastest century in ODI cricket.
Brendon McCullum: 'No, we did not (on asked if he had expected play to get underaway today). We were pretty desperate to play. The last couple of games in Queenstown were also rained out. It was great to watch. They deserve all the accolades. It looked a good wicket, we need to get some early momentum. It was an amazing show from the two left-handers, two guys will be proud of their achievements. We managed to get a win, I am grateful. There will be a great crowd as well at Nelson. With the series one all, it will be a great encounter. We know West Indies will bounce back.'
Dwayne Bravo: 'Yeah it was not the way to start the New year. They came out positive, fantastic innings from both (Anderson and Ryder). Nothing I could do as captain when they hit the ball as clean. Most of us thought that there was no chance of getting play, but that's not an excuse. We fancy our chances in T20 but not much we could do today. We have to regroup and be ready for the next game'
In response to New Zealand's gigantic total of 283-4 in a rain-curtailed 21-over shoot-out, West Indies meandered along to 124-5. The merciless blitzkrieg from both Anderson and Ryder sealed the game for the hosts well before West Indies began their chase. Such was the impact of their you-blink-you-miss partnership. Presentation to follow shortly.
Jesse Ryder and Corey Anderson lead the Kiwis off the field and fittingly so. New Zealand storm back into contention in this series. After a lengthy rain delay, Corey Anderson shredded several records en-route to a whirlwind 47-ball-131 with the most notable being him eclipsing Afridi to become the quickest to make a ODI century. Jesse Ryder, also went bersek, carting the hapless West Indies bowlers all over the park to welcome the new year in a mood of revelry.
