Calcutta: In fine nick at present opening the batting for New Zealand, Colin Munro really seems to be enjoying his new-found rhythm.

On Monday in the second T20I versus West Indies in Mount Maunganui, the left-hander smashed his way to a 23-ball 66, before rain played spoilsport and forced the game to be abandoned.

"You can feel it from ball one or two with your movement and timing. I feel I'm in good rhythm," Munro was quoted as saying by a New Zealand-based website.

"I was fortunate with the wet weather, as I got a few balls to capitalise on. I've also learnt a lot the last couple of years to hit through the off side more. But you've still got to put bad balls away."

Batting alongside captain Kane Williamson also makes Munro's job easier. "That makes a massive difference," Munro said.

"With Kane, you know you'll be facing balls regularly. He's always intent on rotating the strike," Munro added.
