Napier - The second one-day cricket international between New Zealand and the West Indies was abandoned because of rain on Sunday without a ball being bowled.

Heavy rain was falling at McLean Park at the scheduled local start time of 14:00 and, though it abated after about three hours, the umpires decided the outfield could not be made fit for play.

The West Indies lead the five-match series 1-0 after winning the first match at Eden Park on Thursday by two wickets; replying with 157/8 to New Zealand's 156.

The third match is in the South Island resort of Queenstown on Wednesday.
