The West Indies tour, which features three T20s and two Tests, will be the first global cricket played in New Zealand since late February. Kieron Pollard's blistering 75 not out powered West Indies to a commanding 180-7 in the Auckland contest which was reduced to 16-overs-a-side following rain interruptions.

South Africa-born Conway, in his debut, played a stabilizing role after New Zealand slipped to 63-4 with the run out of veteran Ross Taylor. Santner smoked a couple of sixes in the last two overs to seal the game for New Zealand with four balls to spare.

New Zealand's cricketers will consult the West Indies team before deciding whether players take a knee against racism ahead of their Twenty20 series opener in Auckland on Friday, the first worldwide cricket in the country since the coronavirus pandemic.

Lockie Ferguson took 5-21 - the second-best figures by a New Zealander in the format - and Jimmy Neesham hit 48 off 24 balls, his highest T20 worldwide score, as the hosts won by five wickets with four balls to spare chasing 176 off 16 overs.

"I thought the boys started out okay", Ferguson said. He first established a partnership with Glenn Phillips who made 22 and batted on despite dislocating his knee. New Zealand's top order wilted early but Neesham, who remained not out on 48, partnered Conway to revive their chase before pulling it off in company of Santner (31 not out). It's where the two teams played out the first ever bowl out in 2006, and then the first ever Super Over, called the one-over eliminator at the time. South African-born run machine Devon Conway will make his debut for New Zealand at number three in the batting order, with speedster Kyle Jamieson also appearing in his first T20 worldwide.

The West Indies only ended two weeks of Covid-19 quarantine on Thursday but Pollard said they were ready for the challenge.

That's where Southee handed the ball to Ferguson, and the match swung, soon after King had placed the first ball of his spell through the covers for three.

The exact nature of his injury is unknown, but he played before being sent off shortly after. "I think it was fantastic cricket in terms of the ball flying all round the boundaries", he said.

"It was a topsy-turvy sort of game, a bit of indiscipline showed with us on the bowling side".
