West Indies

Alright then. That brings an end to our coverage of the ODI series. New Zealand have been thoroughly dominant. Swept the Tests 2-0 and now swept the ODIs 3-0. But they won't rest easy. West Indies are World T20 champions, and it just could be a different game when the two teams walk out to the field at Nelson on Friday. Join us then. Or you could switch tabs and head over to the Ashes, where Steven Smith's terrific holiday season has extended into another half-century. This entire Ashes series has been an extended Christmas gift for the Australia captain. England's bowlers keep on giving. Nothing more from us, though. Goodbye from myself, Nikhil Kalro and Chandan. Have a terrific holiday season y'all. Our best wishes and greetings for the holidays and the new year. Ciao!

"Outstanding performance. It was to nice get back out after the rain delay," says Tom Latham. "It was about taking it as deep as possible and putting on a partnership with Ross. Scrapping hard and getting some boundaries late in the innings was good. You keep coming on and off, but it's one of the things you get used to. Exciting for the rest of the summer that a lot of the guys are stepping up."

"We lost wickets upfront and couldn't recover," says Jason Holder. It's not easy to get going from the word go in these conditions."

Trent Boult is Man of the Series. "It's a lovely ground. Good to get some cricket later in the afternoon and pleasing to get a result,: he says. "I've had my success at Hagley. Nice cross-wind. With one guy getting the ball to move away and me getting the ball to move back in, felt good to perform and pick wickets."

Ross Taylor is Man of the Match "It was nice to get a total given the situation and the bowlers did really well," he says. "I had three coffees. It was a strange day all around with four rain breaks, but it is what it is. I felt good, have trained hard for the last couple of months."

7.30pmNew Zealand end a damp Boxing Day, and 2017 in ODIs, with a 3-0 sweep. West Indies haven't come close to challenging New Zealand on this tour, and nothing changes on that front. The return of Chris Gayle did almost nothing to help West Indies. All they have to look forward to is the T20I series now. They are the world champions in that format. Can they bring the fight to New Zealand at least there? That will help them salvage something from what has been a tough and forgettable tour so far. Stay tuned for the presentations.

22.6TD Astle to ST Gabriel, No run, loopy fuller ball on leg. Gabriel tries to clip it into the leg side and gets hit on the pad. Appeal for leg before, not given. Doesn't matter that this was the last delivery and that New Zealand have comprehensively won this one. Latham wants the review. No bat involved. Ball-tracking says pitched outside leg.
22.5TD Astle to ST Gabriel, No run, another googly, spins in from a back of a length, walks across and knocks it into the leg side.
22.4TD Astle to ST Gabriel, No run, flat googly that spins in and hits the front pad. Would have gone down leg.
22.3TD Astle to NO Miller, 1 run, loops up a fuller ball on leg stump which is pushed down to wide long-on.
22.2TD Astle to NO Miller, No run, finds minimal room on the cut and chops it towards point.
22.1TD Astle to ST Gabriel, 1 run, full toss on middle and leg, whips it uppishly through the midwicket region.
