Well that's it. Both captains have decided that nothing will come of the overs remaining and they shake hands and call it a draw.

After 5 days of play the match is drawn but if it wasn't for McCullum's dismissal it would have gone right down to the wire. There has been some stunning individual performances with Chanderpaul, Gayle McIntosh all picking up a ton each with the bat and impressive wicket hauls for O'Brien, Patel and Edwards. The 5th day starting with Gayle standing strong but when he went with a stroke of bad fortune New Zealand cleared up and then proceeded to try and chase down the total in restricted time. They gave it a good attempt with How, McCullum, Taylor and Ryder all attacking the West Indies bowlers.

However, both captains shook hands for a drawn match and the series is drawn 0-0. The Man of the match has been awarded to West Indies captain Chris Gayle for his stunning knock of 197.

Do join us here for the 1st Twenty20 International in Auckland between the two sides which starts at 5.00pm on Boxing Day but for now from me, Callum Stewart it's goodnight.

  • 'At no point did we give up' - Dyson

  • Don't get carried away

    As humbling as it may be to acknowledge a drawn two-Test series with a team ranked just below them, it's more than West Indies managed for some time

  • Vettori for more high-tech review system

    The review system has elicited concerns from both New Zealand and West Indies, particularly with regards to the limited availability of television technology to the third umpire

  • Gayle satisfied after draining knock

    Chris Gayle, the West Indies captain, has said his team will look to score at least another 50 runs on the fifth day of the deciding Test at McLean Park to extend their advantage
