Black Caps all out for 156

6:00 pm on 26 December 2013

The West Indies cricketers have bowled New Zealand out for just 156 runs, with almost seven overs to spare in the opening one day international in Auckland.

After losing the toss and being sent in to bat, only the McCullum brothers offered any real resistance - captain Brendon McCullum was dismissed to a dubious lbw call for 51.

Nathan McCullum was the final wicket to fall for 47, at the start of the 43rd over - though his 42-run partnership with bowler Mitchell McClenaghan, who was not out on three, could be key.

Jesse Ryder's return to the national side didn't last long - Ryder was caught for a duck in just the second over.

But he was far from alone. Martin Guptill was lbw for two, Test hero Ross Taylor was run out for three, Kane Williamson holed out for eight, Corey Anderson 13, Luke Ronchi seven, Jimmy Neesham 10 and Kyle Mills for three.

Darren Bravo was the pick of the West Indian bowling with four for 44.

Adam Milne and Colin Munro missed out on the playing XI for the hosts, who lost the toss.

The rain held off in Auckland after intermittent showers all morning.
