Colin Munro's world record third Twenty20 International century has led the BLACKCAPS to their highest ever winning margin by runs in a Twenty20 International.
Batting first after winning the toss the BLACKCAPS put on 243/5 featuring Munro's 104. The total is the team's highest ever in a Twenty20 International match.
In reply, the West Indies finished on 124/9 in the 17th over, with Shai Hope unable to bat due to an injury suffered earlier in the match.
The victory secured the BLACKCAPS the GJ Gardner Homes T20I series 2-0 and also returned them to the top of the ICC T20I team rankings.

Still a waiting game here at Bay Oval. Just like that things brighten up again and the big covers are off. We could have a bit more of this ahead of game time. Will let you know as soon as we have any news from the Umpires. #NZvWI pic.twitter.com/f5HrdRRgRi— BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) January 3, 2018
