Windies record highest limited-overs total in fifth ODI win against Kiwis to draw series

Sydney, Jan 9 : West Indies has recorded their highest limited-overs total to defeat New Zealand by 203 runs in the fifth and final one-day international on Wednesday and draw the series 2-2 in Hamilton.


West Indies flayed New Zealand's attack, boosted by centuries from Kirk Edwards and Dwayne Bravo and a dominating bowling display by Nikita Miller, to reach 363 for four, which is the highest total posted by the Caribbean nation in a 50-over match, surpassing the previous mark of 360 set against Sri Lanka in 1987.

According to News.com.au, Edwards and Bravo came together at 143-3 and put on 211 runs, to skittle the hosts for 160 and Edwards finished unbeaten on 123, his maiden ODI century.

The New Zealand openers went cheaply, with Martin Guptill out LBW for six and Jesse Ryder (17) scooping the ball skyward going for a slog, the report added.
