This match reported by Tony Cozier (Third Party Reference from The Daily Telegraph)

WINSTON DAVIS committed New Zealand to an unequal fight in their second one-day international against the West Indies and they lost by six wickets in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.

Sent in after Vivian Richards had won the toss, the New Zealanders lost their openers Wright and Rutherford to catches by the wicketkeeper and Jeff Crowe, to a miscued hook in each of Davis's first three overs.

With Garner as miserly as usual at the opposite end, the total reached 13 for three after 12 overs.

Martin Crowe and Jeremy Coney were in the middle of repairing the innings, at 51 for three from 22 overs, when a bank of heavy cloud dumped three hours of steady rain on to the ground, a disappointment for a crowd of more than 25,000.

Foregone conclusion

The parched outfield quickly absorbed the water, play resumed and the West Indies were left with the straightforward task of scoring 52 from 22 overs, a foregone conclusion
