West Indies defeated New Zealand via Super Over in their Super Eight match of the ICC World Twenty20 here today.
Chasing West Indies' 139 all out, New Zealand managed 139 for seven, to send the match into a Super Over.
In the Super Over, New Zealand scored 17 runs but West Indies overhauled that target with one ball to spare.
West Indies: 139 all out in 19.3 overs (Chris Gayle 30, Kieron Pollard 28; Doug Bracewell 3/31, Tim Southee 3/21).
New Zealand: 139 for seven in 20 overs (Ross Taylor not out 62; Sunil Narine 3/20).
Pacers Doug Bracewell and Tim Southee came up with superb bowling efforts as New Zealand bundled out West Indies for a lowly 139 in their Super Eights match of the ICC World Twenty here today.
Southee, Bracewell bowl out West Indies for 139
New Zealand's decision to field first produced the desired result as the Kiwi bowlers managed to frustrate the opposition batsmen throughout. Southee (3/21) and Bracewell (3/31) claimed three wickets each, while Nathan MuCullum took two for 19 to end Windies' innings in 19.3 overs.
West Indies lost opener Johnson Charles early and during his brief stay in the middle, he scored a nine-ball eight with the help of two fours before Bracewell caught him off his own bowling.
Gayle then turned the heat on the Kiwi bowlers in the third over when he struck Kyle Mills for a six and two fours to churn out 16 runs from that over.
New batsman, Andre Russell also showed much promise as he straightaway got down to business hitting a six, but in the very next ball Bracewell dismissed him to add another wicket to his kitty.
Gayle continued in the able company of Marlon Samuels. But Tim Southee forced the dangerman Gayle to nick a ball to be caught behind by Brendon Mccullum.
