New Zealand recovered from a top-order batting collapse to beat West Indies by three wickets in the second one-day international at Queenstown on Wednesday.

The Kiwis looked to be heading towards certain defeat when they collapsed to 13 for four chasing 201 for victory after the touring side made 200 for nine from their 50 overs.

But Peter Fulton (49) and Brendon McCullum (45) steadied the New Zealand innings before Daniel Vettori steered the home team to victory with eight overs to spare.

Wavell Hinds earlier scored a defiant 76 to rescue West Indies from a poor start but his performance was not enough to prevent the tourists from falling 2-0 behind in the five-game series.
