Weather Conditions

Wellington is expected to a have slightly overcast conditions on the first day and bright and sunny weather on the remaining 4 days. No rain is forecasted on the match days.  

Venue Details

Wellington has been a tough pitch for the batsmen as the ball is expected to seam and swing at this venue. Any score above 350+ runs will be tough on this pitch.  Pacers have taken 47 wickets in last 2 matches while spinners have taken just 4 wickets. We can expect high scores in the second and third innings of the match.

Toss: To Bowl

The pitch is expected to aid the faster bowlers on the Day 1 and both captains will look to take advantage of it by putting the opposition to bat.

NZ vs WI Winning Prediction

New Zealand have a quality side despite the absence of Ajaz Patel, and Colin De GrandHomme in their team. West Indies will be further tampered by the absence of their pace duo of Roach and Gabriel. Their batting and bowling unit lacks the firepower or quality to trouble the tall Kiwi line-up in their home conditions.  New Zealand will be delighted to move to the top-3 places in ICC Test Championship and will be disappointed with anything less than a win in this match.   We expect New Zealand to win this match and series.

NEW ZEALAND will win the match & the series 2-0
