Cricket: KIWIS DENIED WHITEWASH.

Byline: By Iain GILMOUR

WEST INDIES pair Denesh Ramdin and Wavell Hinds combined to deny the New Zealand Black Caps a whitewash in the one-day series in Auckland.

Ramdin (38) and Hinds (40 not out) put on a seventh-wicket stand of 58 to earn the Windies' first win on their New Zealand tour.

They triumphed at Eden Park by three wickets with two balls to spare. The hosts had to be content with a 4-1 series success although a 90 from Scott Styris looked to have given them a competitive 233 from 49.3 overs.

Styris's innings was needed to steady New Zealand as West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Smith took five for 45.

Styris and Stephen Fleming took the score to 96 before Fleming was caught behind by Smith after scoring 32.

Styris had amassed 90 off 119 balls when he went for a big hit off Smith and skied the ball for the bowler to catch and leave the Black Caps on 224 for nine.

The West Indians were also slow off the mark before wicketkeeper Ramdin and Hinds swept their side to victory.
