Black Caps out after Super Over loss
Marlon Samuels starred with bat and ball in the Super Over
New Zealand crashed out of the ICC World Twenty20 after a nail-biting Super Over defeat to the West Indies, who progress to the semi-finals after England lost to Sri Lanka.
Set 140 for victory in Pallekele, New Zealand looked on course for much of their innings as captain Ross Taylor led the charge with 62 from 40 deliveries. But a late spell of tight bowling by the Windies attack provided decisive in slowing the Black Caps' charge, with Sunil Narine's three for 20, including 10 dot balls, the stand-out performance.
New Zealand needed two runs for victory off the final ball, but when Doug Bracewell could manage just one from a Marlon Samuels delivery, the Black Caps were left stranded on 139 for seven. Samuels was the hero in the additional overs, restricting New Zealand to 17 with ball in hand before hitting the winning six after being chosen alongside Chris Gayle to face Tim Southee.
With New Zealand on their way home, the Windies needed Sri Lanka to seal England's elimination and secure the safe passage of Darren Sammy's men in the process.
The Windies struggled to build a full head of steam in their 20 overs, with Gayle's 14-ball 30, featuring three fours and two sixes, their top score.
Kieron Pollard added 28 and Samuels 24 as New Zealand dismissed them for 139 in 19.3 overs, with Southee (three for 21) and Bracewell (three for 31) doing most of the damage.
Taylor anchored the New Zealand reply with a captain's performance bringing a deserved half-century but his fellow batsmen failed to back him up, with Brendon McCullum (22), Martin Guptill (21) and James Franklin (14) the only other Kiwis to reach double figures.
