Second One-Day International

New Zealand v West Indies, 2005-06

Don Cameron

At Queenstown, February 22, 2006. New Zealand won by three wickets. Toss: New Zealand.

Fleming tried his luck by putting West Indies in, and gained quick reward when the openers soon departed, Gayle falling for a duck to Bond, whose first spell was 6- 4-2-1. Morton dug in for 39 from 93 balls, while Hinds hit out: they halted the collapse, but the eventual total of 200 only briefly looked like enough. Edwards and Bradshaw had a burst of four wickets for 13 runs in 20 balls, but Fulton and McCullum settled the nerves with a partnership of 71, and Vettori guided New Zealand home.

Man of the Match: D. L. Vettori. Attendance: 3,578.
