Colin Munro made a blistering start to the year, smashing 66 off just 23 balls before rain ruined the second Twenty20 clash between New Zealand and the West Indies, and the Kiwi opener could sparkle once again in the final game of the series.

Munro's promotion in the batting order looks a shrewd move by the Black Caps, despite three ducks in his first four T20 innings last year.

The fourth knock produced a wonderful century against Bangladesh, while he struck another ton in India in November and has passed 50 in the first two games against the Windies.

An unbeaten 174 for Auckland against Ben Stokes's Canterbury in a 50-over match in December provided further evidence of Munro's hitting prowess and he can exceed bet365's performance line of 34.5.
