The BLACKCAPS have claimed a 2-0 T20I series victory after the third and final match of the series was washed out with only 2.2 overs bowled.
Stand-in Skipper Mitchell Santner won the toss and bowled first, the weather only allowing enough time for KFC Player of the Series Lockie Ferguson to claim one wicket before the players left the field and didn't return.
A trip to the Twitterverse...

Ross Dykes was a man I greatly admired and will miss dearly 😢— Mike Hesson (@CoachHesson) November 30, 2020
Ross was my boss @OtagoVolts but he was much more than that, a man who genuinely cared about the person first. Thinking of Sue and his much loved family at this challenging time. Miss you Dykesy ❤️ https://t.co/e9PiRqShF7

UPDATE: Players are off the field at @BayOvalOfficial with steady rain falling 🌧 No news on a possible start time, the umpires are currently doing ‘the calculation’📲 #NZvWI #CricketNation pic.twitter.com/hucAZJm5uG
Rain still falling but turf staff working to clear rain off the covers in the hope this is the last of the rain. The latest we can start for a 5 over per side match is 9.48pm. #NZvWI pic.twitter.com/MA5oLHDNmm— BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) November 30, 2020
All done at @BayOvalOfficial. Still raining and not enough time to get a game in. Captains shake hands with a damp end to the KFC T20 Series and the team taking it 2-0 #NZvWI pic.twitter.com/RQpvV8qWHy— BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) November 30, 2020
Lockie Ferguson is the KFC Player of the Series. Leading wicket taker and just the second BLACKCAP to take a T20 five wicket haul! How vital was his first spell in the opening match of the series at @edenparknz? #NZvWI pic.twitter.com/LYuhQZv0y3— BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) November 30, 2020
