West Indies' semi-final hopes now depend on the outcome of the match between hosts Sri Lanka and defending champions England. A Sri Lanka win will knock out England and pave the way for the West Indies in the semi-final.
On a slow track, West Indies batsmen struggled against the New Zealand spinners. While New Zealand pacers Southee (3/21) and Doug Bracewell (3/31) shared six wickets, it were the spinners Nathan McCullum (2/19) and Ronnie Hira (1/24), who dried down the flow of runs.
