HIGHLIGHTS

  • 02:36 (IST)

    Holder -

  • 02:25 (IST)

    Williamson -

  • 02:14 (IST)

    Heartbreak for Brathwaite! What a catch under pressure by Boult at long on! Brathwaite didn't get the timing right and Boult at long on held his nerves to take an outstanding catch just in front of the fence. What a disappointment for Brathwaite and West Indies!

  • 02:09 (IST)

    Neesham starts the over with three short deliveries and Brathwaite tries to pull everyone of them. He however pulls the fourth ball to get to his century. What a knock! He looks focused! This is not over!

  • 02:06 (IST)

    This is happening! Fortune favours the brave! Brathwaite goes for the pull, gets a top edge and the ball flies over the head of the wicketkeeper for another four. He smartly takes a single in the last ball. He also moves to 99, but he doesn't really care about that at the moment.

  • 02:00 (IST)

    Matt Henry takes the ball and starts with a short delivery. Brathwaite pulls it towards deep square leg for a couple of runs and on the very next ball muscles one over long on for six. Oh boy, can Carlos pull this off? 

  • 01:49 (IST)

    Boult from one end and Ferguson from the other, and it's the latter who does the job for New Zealand. Full and straight and it was too hot to handle for Cottrell. A fighting knock comes to an end. Now it's all up to Brathwaite.

  • 01:31 (IST)

    Carlos Brathwaite knocks one to the off side and gets a single but an overthrow allows him to collect one more and complete his second ODI fifty. This has been a quality knock from the all-rounder and he will look to take this game as deep as possible.

  • 01:26 (IST)

    End of 40 overs and West Indies are 222 for 8. Carlos Brathwaite is batting well at the one end and he will look to bat through, but for that he will need someone to hang in at the other end.

  • 01:19 (IST)

    Finally! Roach's fighting knock comes to an end as he edges Henry wide delivery to the wicketkeeper. Decent knock from a No. 9. New Zealand now just need two wickets.

  • 01:07 (IST)

    On the pads and Brathwaite works it towards fine leg for four and brings up the 200 for West Indies. He gets another one on the pads and the result is same. This is very good cricket from the all-rounder. WI are 206 for 7 in 35 overs.

  • 00:36 (IST)

    And another one! Evin Lewis comes out to bat, gets a short delivery and slams it straight into the hands of Neesham at deep square leg. New Zealand are just three wickets away from a win.

  • 00:31 (IST)

    Another one bites the dust! A well-directed bumper from Boult and Nurse went for the pull but ended it gloving it to the wicketkeeper. WI are now six down.

  • 00:22 (IST)

    All over for West Indies? Gayle balloons one towards long on where Boult takes a simple catch. CdG has done it for New Zealand. Still a superb knock from Gayle but this game is in New Zealand's bag now. 

  • 00:13 (IST)

    Two in two! Ferguson drops one very full and Holder went for the drive only to end up edging it to the wicketkeeper. West Indies are once again messing it up. 

02:37 (IST)

That's it from us. Do join us back tomorrow for the Pakistan-South Africa encounter. Goodnight!

02:36 (IST)

Holder - Tough game. Proud of the guys. Chris set the tone for us. Lot of positives. One or two areas, we looked poor. You can't fault the efforts. We needed to seize a few moments. We lost wickets at crucial stages. I came in and got out. Credit to Kemar to get that partnership with Carlos. Plan is to win all three hopefully. We have our pride to play for.

02:25 (IST)

Williamson - Obviously, West Indies are incredibly dangerous, the power they generate throughout the order, we saw it even today. Not the best of starts, they got the ball to swing which made life incredibly difficult. They bowled in the right areas for a lengthy amount of time, the ball did a bit, we did well to put on partnerships which helped us post a decent total on the board. It didn't do anything like that in the second innings though, but a great game of cricket. We have been to different venues and it's been different conditions, got plenty of swing in Cardiff (in our first game) and a variety in other places including some rain. We have been able to adjust according to the conditions. I wanted to be clear in my mind, wanted to play according to the merit of the ball, make the best possible decisions and play according to the situation of the game.

Carlos has got very good hands. We did put a few down today and wasn't our best fielding effort. That paved way for a close contest I suppose. Too close for comfort. Those sort of games are good for the crowd. Fantastic crowd in. Very fortunate to be on the right side of the result. The game ebbed and flowed. Some of their guys were able to hit the ball out of the park and we were able to pick up the wickets and stem the flow. The run rate came in to the equation and then again they hit a few more out of the park. Was a brilliant game and a lot of learning for us before we move into the next match. I thought the guys and the roles given to them, they did an outstanding job. It is always a balance to an attack and guys execute their skills on different surfaces. I mean of the striking the Windies team are able to achieve is unrivalled. Lot of learning to take and buy your trade. I think any sort of experience you have, you can learn from it. There have been a couple of tight ones against good sides. It's nice you end up on the right side of the result and still reflect and make some improvements moving forward. You move on to a new opposition on a new surface and things need to fresh. Somethings to learn from and somethings to move on from. Lot of cricket left. I guess the players are still pretty fresh. We have a few days to think about changes before the next game. Every game is a tough one here. You want to play good cricket and move forward. We have taken small steps but still a long way to go.He has got very good hands. We did put a few down today and wasn't our best fielding effort. That paved way for a close contest I suppose.

02:19 (IST)

At 164 for 7, West Indies looked down and out but Carlos Brathwaite didn't give up. The all-rounder got good support from Roach, Cottrell and Thomas and took the game to the wire. This knock will go down as one of the best in the World Cup. He almost did it for WI!

02:14 (IST)

Heartbreak for Brathwaite! What a catch under pressure by Boult at long on! Brathwaite didn't get the timing right and Boult at long on held his nerves to take an outstanding catch just in front of the fence. What a disappointment for Brathwaite and West Indies!

02:09 (IST)

Neesham starts the over with three short deliveries and Brathwaite tries to pull everyone of them. He however pulls the fourth ball to get to his century. What a knock! He looks focused! This is not over!

02:06 (IST)

This is happening! Fortune favours the brave! Brathwaite goes for the pull, gets a top edge and the ball flies over the head of the wicketkeeper for another four. He smartly takes a single in the last ball. He also moves to 99, but he doesn't really care about that at the moment.

02:04 (IST)

Is it happening? Again? Ian Bishop on commentary! Carlos Brathwaite gets a full toss and tonks it over extra cover for a huge six.

02:02 (IST)

Holy, he might! Wide and full from Henry and Brathwaite throws his bat at it and gets some willow to it. Enough to carry it to the right of third man fence. The ball hits the cushion and all West Indies need now is 19.

02:00 (IST)

Matt Henry takes the ball and starts with a short delivery. Brathwaite pulls it towards deep square leg for a couple of runs and on the very next ball muscles one over long on for six. Oh boy, can Carlos pull this off? 

01:57 (IST)

Carlos Brathwaite! The all-rounder rocks back and smokes one over long off for a huge six. He gets the single in the penultimate delivery and Thomas blocks the last ball. The match goes on!

01:54 (IST)

Ferguson with his last over. Can he finish the job for NZ?

01:53 (IST)

Brathwaite is going to go hard. He starts with slamming Boult down the ground for four before pulling one towards deep mid-wicket for two. He tries to clear the field on the next delivery too but couldn't get it past the mid-off fielder, resulting in just a single. Thomas somehow manages to block the next three deliveries. The match goes on! 

01:49 (IST)

Boult from one end and Ferguson from the other, and it's the latter who does the job for New Zealand. Full and straight and it was too hot to handle for Cottrell. A fighting knock comes to an end. Now it's all up to Brathwaite.

01:44 (IST)

Boult comes back into the attack and Brathwaite gets a single in the very first delivery. Cottrell then simply plays out the over and doesn't do anything silly. 48 needed in 36.

01:40 (IST)

Now Cottrell gets into the act as he gets one down the leg side and works it towards fine leg for four. On the very next delivery, he somehow manages to get it to the left of wicketkeeper for another four. Alright, this match is far from over.

01:36 (IST)

Santner hasn't been at his best tonight. The left-armer drops one short and outside off and Brathwaite cuts it past point for four. Eight runs from this over and WI now need 57 runs. This is getting closer and closer. Can Brathwaite pull it off for his team?

01:31 (IST)

Carlos Brathwaite knocks one to the off side and gets a single but an overthrow allows him to collect one more and complete his second ODI fifty. This has been a quality knock from the all-rounder and he will look to take this game as deep as possible.

01:26 (IST)

End of 40 overs and West Indies are 222 for 8. Carlos Brathwaite is batting well at the one end and he will look to bat through, but for that he will need someone to hang in at the other end.

01:19 (IST)

Finally! Roach's fighting knock comes to an end as he edges Henry wide delivery to the wicketkeeper. Decent knock from a No. 9. New Zealand now just need two wickets.

01:15 (IST)

Matt Henry is back into the attack and concedes only one run. Both Brathwaite and Roach have played smart cricket so far and the two are looking to take the game deep, something that the other batsmen should have done. 37 done, they are 209 for 7.

01:07 (IST)

On the pads and Brathwaite works it towards fine leg for four and brings up the 200 for West Indies. He gets another one on the pads and the result is same. This is very good cricket from the all-rounder. WI are 206 for 7 in 35 overs.

01:04 (IST)

Ferguson drops one very short and the ball goes past the batsman and wicketkeeper for four. Brathwaite and Roach have now added 32 runs and all they need is 96 runs, but all they have is three wickets in hand. NZ will look to wrap this up as soon as possible.

00:52 (IST)

HUGE! Brathwaite gets one in his arc and smokes it down the ground for a 96 meters six. Roach then follows it up with another six over long off. WI have so many overs left and it's a great chance for Brathwaite and Roach to just bat through. WI are 185 for 7 in 32 overs.

00:46 (IST)

Trent Boult not has four wickets and still has three overs left. Santner too has brought his economy down. WI only need 124 runs in 20 overs but they have only three wickets in hand. They were in a perfect position but somehow have managed to mess it up.

00:36 (IST)

And another one! Evin Lewis comes out to bat, gets a short delivery and slams it straight into the hands of Neesham at deep square leg. New Zealand are just three wickets away from a win.

00:31 (IST)

Another one bites the dust! A well-directed bumper from Boult and Nurse went for the pull but ended it gloving it to the wicketkeeper. WI are now six down.

00:28 (IST)

After taking a beating at the hands of Gayle, Santner comes back with a maiden over. He will be relieved that the left-hander is out. 26 done, West Indies are 162 for 5.

00:22 (IST)

All over for West Indies? Gayle balloons one towards long on where Boult takes a simple catch. CdG has done it for New Zealand. Still a superb knock from Gayle but this game is in New Zealand's bag now. 

00:13 (IST)

Two in two! Ferguson drops one very full and Holder went for the drive only to end up edging it to the wicketkeeper. West Indies are once again messing it up.

West Indies vs New Zealand, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match at Manchester Highlights: As it Happened

West Indies vs New Zealand Live Score, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 ODI Match at Manchester Latest Update: Heartbreak for Brathwaite! What a catch under pressure by Boult at long on! Brathwaite didn't get the timing right and Boult at long on held his nerves to take an outstanding catch just in front of the fence. What a disappointment for Brathwaite and West Indies!

West Indies vs New Zealand in the ICC World Cup 2019 on June 22 (Saturday) will be broadcast on the Star Sports Network and live streaming will be available on Hotstar. WI v NZ will be played at Old Trafford in Manchester and will begin at 1800 HRS IST.

Preview: With their backs against the wall, West Indies will take on in-form New Zealand in a must-win World Cup clash on Saturday.

The Windies have looked more in T20 mode this World Cup with their batsmen losing patience too early and getting out, barring Shai Hope who has looked solid. The Jason Holder-led side started their campaign on a high, thrashing Pakistan by seven wickets.

But since then, the Caribbean side has been on a downward slide losing three games -- against Australia, England and Bangladesh -- with the game against South Africa being washed out.

The West Indies are currently lying seventh in the 10-team standings with just three points in their bag.

A defeat against New Zealand, who are the only team besides India to have remained unbeaten so far, would all but end their hopes for a semi-final berth.

Against Bangladesh, West Indies posted 321/8 but their poor bowling effort saw Bangladesh gun down the target in 41.3 overs with seven wickets in hand.

Chris Gayle, one of the Windies' batting pillars, hasn't clicked so far and Andre Russell has been a flop too. Evin Lewis, Hope, Shimron Hetmyer and Holder have been the ones scoring the runs but their bowling has been a cause of worry.

New Zeland have been in great shape, sitting pretty at second spot with nine points, which includes four wins out of five games with the match against India being washed out.

The Kiwis, led by the brilliant Kane Williamson, have so far beaten Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and South Africa.

But Williamson and Co. will know their real test starts now. While they will start favourites against West Indies, they will have three tough encounters against Pakistan, Australia and England.

In their last encounter against South Africa, Williamson's class came to the fore as he scripted a match-winning knock of 106 not out to guide the Black Caps past the line in a tense final over finish while chasing a modest 242-run target.

Teams (from): New Zealand: Kane Williamson (Captain), Tom Blundell, Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, James Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee.

West Indies: Jason Holder (Captain), Fabian Allen, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Ashley Nurse, Nicholas Pooran, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas.
