With 206 required to win, Marlon Samuels (52), Shivnarine Chanderpaul (43 not out) and Kemar Roach (41) ensured that West Indies notch up the runs and beat New Zealand by five wickets in the second Test to win the series 2-0 here yesterday.

The hosts had victory tantalisingly in sight at the close on Saturday on the third day as they stood 71 runs short of victory with six wickets remaining.

With bowler Narsingh Deonarine on a hot streak, the hosts bowled out the Black Caps for just 154.
