The West Indies are in a strong position to win the first of their five-match Digicel One Day International series against New Zealand at Sabina Park.
Chasing a modest 191 to win after restricting the Kiwis to 190 off their allotted 50 overs the West Indies were 93 for one when play was interrupted by rain.
Leading the way so far is opener Chris Gayle, who is not out on 49.
His knock includes five sixes and three fours.
Number three batsman Dwayne Smith, was not out on 38, including two sixes and three fours.
The batsman back in the pavilion is opener Lendel Simmons, who was caught behind off Kyle Mills without scoring.
Earlier, fast bowler Andre Russell with four for 45 emerged as the West Indies’ pick with off-spinner, Sunil Narine, and Ravi Rampaul both taking two wickets.
BJ Watling 60 and Jacob Oram 32 made most runs for the Black Caps, who are themselves seeking a winning start after losing the two-match Twenty20 International series in Florida, USA last weekend.
