He hit eight fours and five sixes in his 89-ball innings.By the end of the 40th over, the asking rate had risen to more than 16 an over and it was too tall a task for the New Zealand lower order. The New Zealand innings eventually folded for 330 in 47.2 overs.Pacer Carlos Brathwaite was the most successful West Indies bowler with figures of 3 for 61 from his eight overs.Earlier, West Indies batsmen sent the New Zealand bowlers, except for Trent Boult (4/50), to cleaners after being sent into bat.Hope first shared 84 runs for the second wicket with Lewis before stitching 48 and 43 runs with Darren Bravo (25) and Shimron Hetmyer (27) for the third and fourth wickets respectively.The 25-year-old Shai, who hit two centuries earlier this month against Bangladesh and Ireland during the Tri-Nation Series, continued his good form with yet another top-class performance.After Hope was out in the 36th over, captain Jason Holder (47) and Russell maintained the high scoring tempo with a 82-run stand from just 6.3 overs to take West Indies past 400.Coming out to bat at number eight, Russell, who had a phenomenal outing at the Indian Premier League ahead of the World Cup, was at his destructive best yet again as his 54 came from just 25 balls with the help of seven fours and three sixes.Carlos Brathwaite (24 runs off 16 balls) and Ashley Nurse (21 not out off 9 balls) gave the finishing touches in style with 34 runs between them from 3.2 overs before West Indies were all out for 421 in 49.2 overs.Brief Scores:West Indies: 421 all out from 49.2 overs (Shai Hope 101, Evin Lewis 50, Andre Russell 54; Trent Boult 4/50).New Zealand: (Kane Williamson 85, Tom Blunde 106; Carlos Brathwaite 3/75)Also Read: ICC World Cup 2019: South Africa Team preview Key player, full Fixtures and Squad,…ICC World Cup 2019: England Team preview Key player, full Fixtures and Squad, Strengths,…ICC World Cup 2019: Dale Steyn ruled out of CWC19 openerICC World Cup 2019: Nottingham to host first #CWC19 Fanzone!
