New Zealand Preview

New Zealand is currently the top-ranked team in ICC Men’s ODI Team Ranking. Their position on the table is enough to get an idea of the strength of the New Zealand squad in ODI cricket. They have played brilliant cricket in the past year and also were the finalists in the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup. This ODI series will still be a challenge for New Zealand as they will be missing a few important players for the squad due to IPL 2022.

Martin Guptill and Henry Nicholls will be the key top-order batsman for New Zealand. Both the top-order batsmen will have the responsibility to deliver a good batting partnership in the initial phase of the game.

Matt Henry and Kyle Jamieson will lead the bowling attack for New Zealand. Both these bowlers are capable enough to destroy the opposing team’s batting order. Matt Henry has claimed 12 wickets in 6 matches with an economy of 3.93. Jamieson on the other hand has claimed 5 wickets in 5 matches with an economy of 4.04. With many important players missing this series due to their engagement in IPL12, Tom Latham will have the challenge to manage the team dynamics and lead this team to victory.
