West Indies bag series

New Zealand skipper Ross Taylor smashed a fine century but it was not enough to prevent West Indies from wrapping up the one-day series with a 24-run win in the fourth match here on Saturday.

Taylor made 110 off 115 balls. But as his team chased a 267 target, he was outshone by West Indies seamer Tino Best, who marked his recall to the team with 4-46.

Earlier, Kieron Pollard hit a patient half-century as West Indies recovered from 105-5 to make 264 all out. Pollard top-scored with 56, Marlon Samuels made 46 while Devon Thomas hit a useful 37.
