West Indies chasing revised target

5:51 pm on 10 January 2009

Play has resumed in the fourth one day cricket international between New Zealand and the West Indies, in Auckland.

The players were forced off Eden Park for an hour because of rain.

Because of the delay, the West Indies are now chasing a revised target of 235 from 40 overs.

Initially it had been 276.

The visitors resumed their innings on 47 for none, with star batsman Chris Gayle still at the crease.

Earlier in the day, the New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill turned in a record breaking performance.

Guptill scored 122 not out to become the first New Zealander to score a century on their limited overs debut.

His century is also the second highest effort ever in international one day cricket by a debutant.

Ross Taylor also scored 75 in New Zealand's total of 275 for four.
