The Black Caps have beaten West Indies by 13 runs in the opening T20 International in Jamaica.

Batting first, New Zealand scored 185 for five and then restricted the West Indies to 172 for seven in reply.

New Zealand started well with Devon Conway and Martin Guptill putting on an opening stand of 62 in the first seven overs.

However, captain Kane Williamson’s knock of 47 then helped New Zealand through to 185 for five. Jimmy Neesham was left 33 not out.

West Indies fell behind the required run-rate early on and lost regular wickets as they attempted to hit out.

Man of the match Mitchell Santner took three wickets for 19 runs from his four overs.

The second match of three is at the same ground on Saturday.
