The words of his fellow West Indian formed a reasonable enough demand given that the previously unheralded Brathwaite had just hammered four consecutive final-over sixes off Ben Stokes to win the World Twenty20 in Kolkata three years ago.

Brathwaite nearly single-handedly got the West Indies across the line with his late century but with his side needing just five runs to win, he attempted to hit a six off the final ball of the 49th over.

And New Zealand's attack was looking as toothless as Daniel Flynn, their former batsman, here a decade ago following a Test tussle with James Anderson, until a madcap 20 minutes left us another reason to remember the Brathwaite name.

But despite losing five wickets, New Zealand still managed to score 92 off the last 10 overs to set the West Indies a challenging target. The Kiwis are still unbeaten in this World Cup winning four games while on ended in a washout.

But the West Indies were seventh before the start of Saturday's matches.

'Carlos Brathwaite, remember the name, ' bellowed Ian Bishop.

Batsmen: Chris Gayle, Kane Williamson, Shimron Hetmyer or Martin Guptill are good batsmen.

But he eventually holed out during a collapse that saw five wickets lost for 22 runs in 28 balls.

Gayle responded by hitting paceman Henry's next two balls for six.

Gayle was first dropped on 15 when Boult floored a desperately hard chance off Matt Henry as the ball dropped over his shoulder.

Gayle then needlessly holed out in the deep off seamer Colin de Grandhomme at the end of the 24th over, as the wheels came off the innings.

Shimron Hetmyer made 54 but couldn't press on and when Kemar Roach edged Henry to wicket-keeper Tom Latham, West Indies were 211-8.

Brathwaite then hit Neesham for two to complete a century.

New Zealand put the squeeze on, with Boult conceding just one run from the 44th over, before Cottrell was bowled by Ferguson with 47 needed from 36 balls.

New Zealand appeared to have the game in hand when Boult took four wickets and a vital catch to remove Chris Gayle for 87 to have the West Indies reeling at 164-7 in the 27th over.
