First New Zealand-West Indies ODI Abandoned

The first one-day international between New Zealand and the West Indies was abandoned because of rain here today.

The West Indies were 129 for five in the 36th over when the players were forced from the field, and play was officially abandoned about two hours later.

Xavier Marshall was not out 29 with Denesh Ramdin on two.

Captain Chris Gayle was out for 25 and Ramnaresh Sarwan made 38 while Tim Southee had two for 33.

The outcome kept the West Indies tour of New Zealand deadlocked after the two Tests were drawn and the two Twenty20 matches ended in a win apiece.

The second of the five one-day matches is scheduled for Christchurch on Saturday.
