Heavy rain prevented the West Indies from saving pride or possibly whitewash and they had to settle for a result against New Zealand in the final Twenty20 International of the three-game series on Monday.
Only 2. 2 overs were possible before heavy showers swept the bay oval and forced the players and referees to leave the field.
The West Indies were 25 for one, with opener Andre Fletcher not at four and left-handed Kyle Mayers not at five after they were sent to hit.
The result meant the Caribbean team lost the series 2-0 after suffering a five wicket loss at the Eden20 in Auckland a few days earlier and a 66 run loss two days later at the Bay had to be oval.
Bad bowling in the two Twenty20s and weak strokes from the Twenty20 world champions sentenced them to their two consecutive defeats.
Bowling in the West Indies was erratic, as in the first Twenty20, with New Zealand batsman Glenn Phillips hitting a record in the first century (108) with 10 fours and eight sixes in a 51-ball attack, a New Zealander’s fastest hundred and put up the Blackcaps with an impressive 238 from their 20 overs in the match affected by rain.
West Indies had no answer for Phillips and left-handed Devon Conway when the two blew up bowling to set a world record 184 for the third wicket.
None of the batsmen in the West Indies showed aggression against the New Zealand bowlers – a handful made starts but they didn’t continue – and the regional team slumped from their 20 overs for nine to 166.
West Indian captain Kieron Pollard got the top mark of 28, while Kemo Paul scored 26 hits towards the end and Kyle Myers scored 20 points.
Bad weather has kept the West Indies from paying heed to the stats which suggest teams that play first at the Bay Oval have won all of the previous six games.
In the first T20, the West Indies lost to hosts New Zealand through five wickets using the Duckworth-Lewis method at Eden Park in Auckland.
The game has been reduced to 16 overs after three rain stops during the West Indies innings. New Zealand had a revised target of 176 in 10 overs and hit 179 for 5 with four deliveries.
