After winning their first two games against Papua New Guinea and Uganda, West Indies will now face New Zealand in Group C. The 26th game of the ICC WT20 2024 will be played at Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad on June 13th from 6 am. West Indies needs a win to qualify for the Super 8 stage.

It was a one-sided affair for the West Indies against Uganda. Batting first, West Indies scored 173 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. Johnson Charles scored 44 runs followed by Andre Russell’s quick 30* off 17 balls. Akeal Hosein took 5 wickets for 11 runs in return to hand over a 134-run victory to West Indies. The back-to-back wins took West Indies to the top of the points table in Group C.

New Zealand faced a crushing defeat against Afghanistan in their first game of the ICC WT20 24. New Zealand restricted Afghanistan to 159 for the loss of 6 wickets after inviting them to bat first. Trent Boult and Matt Henry took two wickets each. New Zealand failed to the trap set by Fazalhaq Farooqi (4 wickets) & Rashid Khan (4 Wickets) to get bowled out on 75. Glenn Phillips & Matt Henry were the only two-digit scorers. New Zealand lost the game by 84 runs. 

For Group C, West Indies is currently at the number one position with 4 points while New Zealand is at the bottom of the table without a point. It will be a do-or-die game for New Zealand as they are on the verge of getting eliminated from the ICC WT20 24 in the group stages.

West Indies Preview

West Indies will be high on the success they had in the first two games. Johnson Charles and Brandon King will open the innings for them. King is the leading run-scorer for West Indies with 612 runs in the last 20 games at a strike rate of 145.36. He has 78 runs in the first two games. Johnson Charles who has 381 runs in the last 15 games is having a poor run at the World Cup with just 13 runs in the first two games. The lower strike rate of King and the poor form of Charles might hurt the West Indies batting unit. 

Nicholas Pooran will come at number three. Pooran has scored 49 runs in the first two games. He has 470 runs in 18 innings since the start of the last year at a strike rate of 151.61. Skipper Rovman Powell and Sherfane Rutherford will lead the middle order with Andre Russell. Andre Russell has been phenomenal this year. The IPL winner has scored 45 runs and claimed three wickets in this World Cup so far. He has the highest strike rate of 191.85 amongst the West Indies batters since the last year.

Akeal Hosein will lead the bowling attack with Alzarri Joseph and Gudakesh Motie. Hosein has 20 wickets in 20 games since 2023 at an economy of 8.20. Alzarri Joseph is West Indies’ leading wicket-taker for the same period with 23 wickets. All eyes will be on Gudakesh Motie who has 15 wickets in the last 9 games at an economy of 6.75 - the best amongst the West Indies bowlers.

Key Players: Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Akeal Hosein.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Johnson Charles, Brandon King, Roston Chase, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Rovman Powell (c), Andre Russell, Sherfane Rutherford, Romario Shepherd, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie.

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand were left hurt after an 84-run defeat in their first game of the World Cup. It will be their only chance to keep their hopes alive for Super-8. Finn Allen and Devon Conway will open the innings. Allen is New Zealand’s second leading run-scorer since the start of 2023 with 539 runs at a strike rate of 163.33 - the highest amongst the New Zealand players. He has hit the most sixes (43) in this period. But he was gone on a golden duck in his last outing against West Indies. Conway is having the worst period of his life. In the last 12 games, he has scored just 176 runs at a strike rate of 116.55. But his record against the West Indies is outstanding. In 5 innings, Conway has 212 runs against New Zealand at a strike rate of 145.20. New Zealand should think of including Rachin Ravindra who has a better strike rate than Conway. 

Skipper Kane Williamson will come at number three. He has played just three games in the last two years. In three games, Williamson has scored 92 runs. His experience will be crucial against the West Indies. Glenn Phillips will be the batter to watch out for. Phillips has 337 runs in 8 innings against West Indies at a strike rate of 182.16. He has a century and 2 half-centuries in those innings.  Daryl Mitchell and Mark Chapman will be playing a key role in the middle. Mitchell has 479 runs in the last 22 games at a strike rate of 137. On the other hand, Chapman is New Zealand’s leading run-scorer since 2023 with 775 runs in 32 innings. 

Trent Boult with Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson will lead New Zealand’s bowling unit. The Kiwi Pacers took 5 of the 6 wickets in the first game. Ferguson has 8 wickets in 5 T20Is against West Indies at an average of 13.12. Keeping Ish Sodhi out against Afghanistan was New Zealand’s biggest mistake. He should be considered over Michael Bracewell. Sodhi is New Zealand’s second leading wicket-taker since 2023. Santner will play as the second spinner. The left-handed orthodox has 22 wickets in the last 20 innings with the lowest economy amongst the Kiwi bowlers. 

Ke Players: Finn Allen, Glenn Phillips, Lockie Ferguson.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson.

Weather Conditions

The weather will be partly cloudy. The temperature will range between 25 and 31. The wind will be flowing from the west at 15-25 kmh. The rain is predicted for the three days before the game. The pitch at Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad typically offers good support to batters. The surface is known for being hard and sporting a decent covering of grass.

The pitch generally offers consistent bounce, which can be exploited by both seamers and spinners. It can be a high-scoring game.

WI vs NZ Pitch Report

The 26th T20I of the series will be played at Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad. The venue has a capacity of 15000 spectators and has hosted 4 ODIs & 7 T20Is. In 2023, England recorded the highest total on the ground (267) against the West Indies.

Toss: To Bat

In 7 T20Is, the results have favored the team chasing the target 4 times. But as far as the Men’s cricket is concerned, three victories in the last four games have come while defending the target. The average first innings score at Tarouba is 161. The team winning the toss should bat first.

West Indies have two wins in the two games in this World Cup so far. But these victories have come against the minnows of the tournament. This time they will be facing giants on the other side. Though the home conditions favor the West Indies, New Zealand has a terrific record in T20Is against the West Indies. 

In the last 10 T20Is, New Zealand has 8 victories over the hosts. Glenn Phillips who has 337 runs in 8 innings against West Indies at a strike rate of 182.16 will play a crucial role in this game.

We predict that New Zealand will defeat West Indies.
