Gayle smashed seven fours and five sixes off 52 balls to anchor a record-breaking West Indian total of 209-2 off 20 overs.
The equally powerful Pollard lofted five fours and five sixes as the pair shared a partnership of 108 off 47 balls. New Zealand was briefly up with the demanding required rate but eventually was bowled out for 153 off 18.3 overs at Central Broward Regiona Park.
West Indies spinner Sunil Narine claimed 3-34 while there was a wicket apiece for captain Darren Sammy, Fidel Edwards and Dwayne Bravo.
Earlier, Dwayne Smith started the six-hitting frenzy after New Zealand had sent in the West Indies, smashing two in scoring 17 off 13 deliveries before he was bowled by paceman Doug Bracewell to make it 27-1.
Gayle and Johnson Charles (24) put on a stand of 74 before Charles top-edged Kane Williamson to backward point. Pollard launched his first ball for six and was in devastating mood throughout.
Gayle reached his half-century in 42 balls in the 16th over, while Pollard was even more rapid, his milestone taking just 24 deliveries.
