West Indies bowlers then put on a disciplined display to trouble the New Zealanders. Martin Guptill (21) and Brendan (22) got starts but failed to convert them to big scores. Taylor's unbeaten knock kept New Zealand on course.
With New Zealand needing 17 runs from the last two balls, Narine bowled an excellent penultimate over giving away just three runs to make it a tough task for Taylor and Bracewell.
