NZ win series

Bridgetown: Trent Boult captured the final West Indies wicket in the third over with the second new ball to give New Zealand a tense 53-run win in the deciding third Test in Barbados on Monday and a 2-1 series victory.

New Zealand won the first Test in Jamaica, while West Indies won the second in Trinidad.

New Zealand’s only previous series win in the West Indies was when they took a 1-0 victory in the two-match series in 2002.

The victory with 13.4 overs remaining in the final day’s play also completed the third successive series win for Brendon McCullum’s side.
