Cricket returned to the New Zealand shores making a grand statement with a cracker of a match. The match was one hell of a roller coaster ride batsmen and bowlers taking turns to gain upper hand from both the sides. It was such a bizarre match to an extent that the revised DLS target (176 runs) was reduced from the actual total (180 runs) for the chasing team. But the match produced exciting cricketing action for the crowd between the quality T20I sides. Both teams will look to shed their sluggishness in this match. New Zealand will look tow in this match before their skipper Tim Southee takes a break while West Indies will look to level the series.

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand chased down 178 runs despite no batsmen scoring fifty last night. New comers Devon Conway (41 runs) and Glenn Philips (22 runs) took the attack to the opposition after the early wickets of the openers. James Neesham (48* runs) and Mitchell Santner (31* runs) took their team to victory after a small hiccup in the middle overs.

Tim Southee (2 wickets) and Lockie Ferguson (5 wickets) turned the tables dramatically in their team`s favor reducing the opponent from 58/0 in 3 overs to 59/5 in 5.1 overs.  Kyle Jamieson looked good with the ball and troubled the batsmen very often. Hamish Bennett and James Neesham were taken for a lot of runs as their 4 overs cost 82 runs.

Top players to bet on:

Glenn Philips – Glenn Philips scored 22 runs off just 7 balls with 3 sixes and a four and kept the momentum of his team`s batting despite 2 early wickets. We expect him to play a big knock in this match.

Lockie Ferguson – Ferguson`s 3-wicket over shifted the momentum in their favor and a destructive start by the West Indies openers. He ended with impressive match figures of 4-0-21-5 in the match.   

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Tim Seifert (wk), Ross Taylor, Martin Guptill, Glenn Philips, Devon Conway,  Jimmy Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee (c), Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi/Hamish Bennett, Kyle Jamieson

West Indies Preview

West Indies started the match in superb fashion with a 58-run opening partnership in just 20 balls. But their middle order fell like a pack of card to slump to 59/5 in no time.  Skipper Kieron Pollard (75 runs) produced a master class in support of Fabien Allen (30 runs) to take their team to massive total of 180 runs in their quota of 16 overs.

Pacers Oshane Thomas and Sheldon Cottrell claimed 2 & 1 wicket respectively giving runs at less than 8 RPO in the match. Kesrick Williams, Fabian Allen, and Keemo Paul were taken for a lot of runs in the match and they had combined match figures of 8-0-104-0 in the match.   

Top players to bet on:

Kieron Pollard – Pollard played a brilliant knock of 75 runs off 37 balls to guide his team from 59/5 to 180/6 at the end of their innings. He smashed 4 boundaries and 8 sixes and never allowed the opposition bowlers to settle down.

Sheldon Cottrell – Cottrell dismissed the dangerous Martin Guptill in the first over and had match figures of 4-0-30-1 in a high scoring contest. He will look to continue his good forma nd rhythm and pick more wickets with the new ball.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Kieron Pollard (c), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Andre Fletcher, Fabian Allen, Keemo paul, Sheldon Cottrell, Kesrick Williams, Rovman Powell, Oshane Thomas

Weather Conditions

The rain is expected to make its appearance in the Mt. Maunganai and we can expect a few interruptions in the match due to the weather. We can expect a shortened game at least if not for a full game.

Venue Details

Bay Oval is one belter of a pitch were batsmen will score runs easily. Bowlers need to operate with precision and accuracy in their line and lengths to control the batsmen. We can expect another run feast of 200+ runs on this match.

Toss: To Bat

The pitch is expected to slow down as the match progresses and team’s battings second will find it difficult to chase the total. Batting first has 8-1 win-loss record at this venue so far.

New Zealand batting unit showed a lot of grit and character in the stiff chase despite their senior players like Guptill and Taylor not making a big contribution. Their bowling needs to more control as they gave away 16 wides and 4 no-balls last game. West Indies middle order suffered a huge collapse but they posted a massive total of 180 runs tells us about the depth their batting unit. Their bowlers were consistently put under pressure from Kiwis and they lacked the firepower to control the opposition. We expect New Zealand to win this match and continue their winnings streak over West Indies in T20Is.

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