Although it was not heavy rainfall, ground officials said part of the outfield had become too wet to be readied for play in time for even a reduced 20-over match.

The West Indies lead the five-match series 1-0 after winning the opening ODI in Auckland on Boxing Day by two wickets.

The next game is in Queenstown on Wednesday.
