New Zealand register a emphatic seven-wicket victory. Bond started off with an sensational spell to push West Indies into a shell. They rallied through Gayle and Sarwan but then came the familiar West Indies collapse. Lara tried to stem the rot but his dismissal hastened the end. New Zealand jogged through the chase and are sitting pretty with four points.

This is Sriram Veera signing off. Adios.
