New Zealand beat Windies by five wickets in first ODI

New Zealand cruised to a five-wicket win over the West Indies in the first one-day international in Whangarei on Wednesday.

The tourists reached 248-9 after losing the toss and being sent in to bat, a target the Black Caps overhauled with four overs remaining.

Opening batsmen George Worker and Colin Munro laid the foundation for the hosts' chase with a 108-run partnership, after paceman Doug Bracewell took four for 55 with the ball.
