Andre Russell and Dwayne Bravo each stroked half-centuries as the West Indies won the last of five Digicel One-day internationals against New Zealand.

The Windies notched 241 in a 20-run victory.

Russell led the way with an unbeaten 59, while Bravo made 53 as the Windies, who chose to bat, posted 241 for nine at St Kitts’ Warner Park.

The win gave the Windies a 4-1 mark in the series against the Kiwis and a sweep in the two matches in Basseterre.

Marlon Samuels contributed 43 and Devon Thomas made 20.

The Windies were stumbling on 160 for seven until Russell took over, hitting six fours and three sixes from 40 deliveries. The Windies collected 77 in the last 10 overs.

KS Williamson led the Kiwis with 69.
