Martin Guptill and Tom Latham are expected to pair up at the top with the likes of Devon Conway, James Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, and Mitchell Santner expected to aid their skipper in the middle order effectively.
Trent Boult, Tim Southee, and Lockie Ferguson will form their pace trio in the starting XI in this match with Matt Henry waiting in the ranks. Spinners Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner will slot themselves in the playing XI in this match looking at West Indies spin weakness.

Kingston will have bright and breezy climate on the match day with just 10% chances of rain as per the weather forecasters.
Sabina Park will be fresh and green with the ball coming onto the bat nicely as this is the first match to be played here in a long time. We expect the scores to be in 170-180 runs in this match.
Chasing teams seems to hold an upper hand in the T20I matches off late and we expect both captains to bowl first if they win the toss.
New Zealand has a strong batting line-up but they might miss the co-ordination as they never were rested for the recent series. Their bowling unit has been on a roll and will look to continue their good work in this match too. West Indies batting relies too heavily on their openers and they are struggling to maintain the scoring rate in the middle overs. We expect New Zealand to win this match owing to their recent form and momentum.
