NAPIER:-The second ODI between New Zealand and West Indies was called off after persistent afternoon rain left wet patches in the outfield. The umpires inspected the ground at 5pm - two-and-a-half hours after the scheduled start - under sunny conditions, but deemed the outfield unfit for play. The play was finally called off to boos from the crowd. A drizzle had greeted the teams before the start of the match, but the prospect of play diminished as soon as the downpour increased in intensity before the scheduled start.–Agencies
