But he has failed to fire so far in New Zealand, with scores of 22 and four in the two ODIs he played and 12 in the first Twenty20.

With the disappointment, the Windies will now head into the final game tomorrow at the same venue needing a win in order to avoid another another series defeat.

New Zealand batsman Colin Munro provided some fireworks of his own to start 2018 as he smashed a 23-ball 66 against the West Indies, but it all went in vain as the first global match of the year was washed out.

"He's a fantastic player, probably the best T20 record in the game and can take the game away at any time", Williamson said on his return to the New Zealand squad after sitting out the last three games.

New Zealand lead the three match series 1-0 after winning the first match on Friday.

Munro then ripped into captain Carlos Brathwaite in the fifth over, smashing a six and three fours in the medium pacer's solitary over which went for 21.

Munro scored the second-fastest Twenty20 global fifty by a New Zealand player, taking just 18 balls to reach the milestone.

West Indies them admirably clawed their way back, picking up three wickets for 19 runs in the space of 16 balls.

New Zealand lost a few quick wickets after Munro's departure with Glenn Phillips (10) and Tom Bruce being undone by the spin of Samuel Badree and Ashley Nurse respectively.
