The New Zealander cricketers have fallen short in the second one dayer against The West Indies in Kingston Jamaica, losing by 55 runs.

The Windies scored 315 for the loss of five wickets; Marlon Samuels reached 101 and Chris Gayle's 125 was his 20th one day tonne, the most centuries ever scored by a West Indian in one day cricket.

In reply the Black Caps were all out for 260 in the 47th over; Martin Guptil hit 51, Kane Williamson 58, and BJ Watling was not out on 72.

The captain, Williamson, says his team are starting to find some form.

The 3rd match in the five game series is in St Kitts, on Thursday.
