Visiting captain Darren Sammy blasted an unbeaten 43 off 27 balls with five boundaries and three sixes after five wickets from Mitchell McClenaghan gave the hosts hope that they could defend their low total.

Only the McCullum brothers made a significant contribution in the Kiwis innings with captain Brendon making 51 and older brother Nathan, batting at nine, hitting 47.

Ravi Rampaul removed both openers in his first two overs and the run out of in-form Ross Taylor left New Zealand at 10-3.

Dwayne Bravo then picked up 4-44 as the Boxing Day crowd saw their side dismissed in only 42.1 overs.

The men from the Caribbean scored quickly in their run chase but steadily lost wickets with left-arm seamer McClenaghan picking up the first four wickets as they reached 60-4 in the 12th over.

Lendl Simmons made 34 but Kyle Mills claimed wickets in successive overs before McClenaghan took his fifth wicket, that of Dinesh Ramdin, to leave West Indies on 121-7.

However, some clean hitting from Sammy saw his side home. In the space of three balls, he hooked McClenaghan for six before smashing the bowler for four through mid-wicket to complete the victory.

The five-match series continues in Napier on Sunday before heading to Queenstown, Nelson and Hamilton after the Kiwis comprehensively won the Test series 2-0.
