The contest was abandoned after 9 overs of cricket. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Colin-Munro" target="_blank">Colin Munro</a>'s 23-ball 66 (including 11 fours and 3 sixes) sparked New Zealand's innings, but West Indies came back following his dismissal. With the contest ruled out, the series decider will be played on January 3 ]at the same venue Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui. <p></p> <p></p>Electing to bowl, West Indies got rid of Martin Guptill soon. Nonetheless, Munro was in a punishing mood. He smacked skipper Carlos Brathwaite and Kesrick Williams out of the park by hitting boundaries at will. Williams, joint second-highest wicket-taker in T20Is in 2017, commenced 2018 on a bad note. <p></p> <p></p>Following Munro's departure, New Zealand had a mini collapse. From 78 for 1 they slipped to 97 for 4. Brathwaite took a blinder at mid-wicket, flying to his right, to send off Tom Bruce off Ashley Nurse. Samuel Badree and Nurse put some lid on the scoring before weather had a role in the first international of the calendar year. <p></p> <p></p><strong>In other news</strong> <p></p> <p></p>Munro equalled the likes of David Warner and Glenn Maxwell, reaching fifty under 20 balls thrice. In addition, this was the fourth fastest T20I half-century. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Brief scores</strong> <p></p> <p></p><strong>New Zealand</strong> 102 for 4 in 9 overs (Colin Munro 66, Kane Williamson 17*; Samuel Badree 1 for 23, Ashley Nurse 1 for 13) vs <strong>West Indies</strong>. Match abandoned.
