World Cup: Kiwi grit versus West Indian flamboyance

Last updated on: March 23, 2015 21:10 IST

When the West Indies were overwhelmed by New Zealand's determination...

The World Cup quarter-final clash between New Zealand and West Indies was about Kiwi bowling vs West Indian flamboyance.

But it was Martin Guptill who stole the show with the second World Cup double ton, smashing an unbeaten 237 off just 163 balls.

Chris Gayle played a quickfire 61 off just 33 balls, raising hopes of West Indies fightback. But wickets kept tumbling from the other end.

In the end West Indies were bundled out for 250 in 30.3 overs.
