Lauderhill - The West Indies notched up their second crushing Twenty20 victory over New Zealand in as many days on Sunday.

After winning the first shortened overs match by 56 runs on Saturday, the West Indies again had explosive batsman Chris Gayle and spinner Sunil Narine to thank for a convincing 61-run win over the Kiwis.

West Indies made 177/5 off their 20 overs with Gayle striking a fluent 53 off 39 balls, featuring three fours and four sixes, and Jonathan Charles and Dwayne Bravo chipping in with useful knocks of 36 and 35 not out respectively.

New Zealand were then bowled out for 116 in the 18th over with Daniel Flynn top-scoring with 22 as Narine followed up on his 3-32 in Saturday's match with a startling 4-12 in four extremely tidy overs.
