The New Zealand XI-West Indies XI match ended in a contrived draw at Lincoln today.

New Zealand test openers Peter Fulton and Hamish Rutherford added 142 for the first wicket in New Zealand's second innings before retiring out on 53 and 72 respectively this morning. 

Captain Brendon McCullum was well caught pulling for 10 before declaring his side's innings closed at 168-3.

The visitors then batted 31 overs before the match was called off with them at 121-2, just 45-runs short of victory.

Openers Kirk Edwards (25) and Chadwick Walton (61no) picked up some valuable time in the middle while the side's star, Shivnarine Chanderpaul was out for 12.
