A consistent drizzle saw the third T20 International between New Zealand and West Indies at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui called off. The hosts had already sealed the series with a huge win in the second game on Sunday (November 29).

In his first international match as captain, Mitchell Santner won the toss and opted to bowl first. That decision was on expected lines at the time because of the possibility of rain and DLS method possibly coming into play.

There was a delayed start as there was a drizzle just as the players were getting onto the field. But soon after, much to the delight of everyone watching, play got underway.

Since 2018, the average first innings total in T20Is at Bay Oval was 206. So, it was no surprise that West Indies began positively, with 12 runs coming off the first over which was bowled by Santner.

Brandon King, who was batting with an aggressive mindset, didn't last long though as he was caught at deep backward point in the following over. It was Lockie Ferguson with the breakthrough once again for the home side and the right-arm pacer was unlucky to have not got more success having found the edges of the bat on a couple of occasions in the same over.

Then the rain came down once again, with West Indies 25/1 after 2.2 overs, following which there was no play possible.

With New Zealand winning the series 2-0, Ferguson was named the Player of the Series, having taken seven wickets in three innings.
