West Indies v New Zealand, 2nd Twenty20, Florida

Gayle, Narine star as WI sweep series

The Report by Abhishek Purohit  July 1, 2012

Dwayne Bravo – smashed 4 sixes in 11 balls

West Indies 177 for 5 (Gayle 53, Bravo 35*, McCullum 2-19) beat New Zealand 116 (Narine 4-12) by 61 runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Chris Gayle provided the substance, yet again, Dwayne Bravo provided the late blast, and Sunil Narine ended New Zealand’s chase before it could even begin. West Indies completed their second big win over New Zealand to take the Florida and Twenty20 leg of the series 2-0. Already weakened by injuries to key players, including captain Ross Taylor, New Zealand had no answer to West Indies’ combination of power, explosiveness and intrigue.

Gayle threatened to cause as much damage as he had on Saturday before Nathan McCullum restricted him to 53, but Bravo’s burst ensured West Indies had another substantial total to defend. Narine, who had gone for some runs on Saturday, made a return to his miserly and productive ways from the IPL, picking up 4 for 12.    [more]
