Alzarri Joseph took a wicket and Y Cariah and K Mayers were economical with the ball in the last game.

Weather Conditions

Bridgetown will have dark and cloudy climate on the match day with 40-50% chances of rain as per the weather forecasters. We expect DLS equation come into force in this match too.

Venue Details

Kennington oval is slightly on the slower side and batters need to apply themselves to make big score on this pitch. Both teams are yet to cross 220-ru mark in the series so far. We expect the scores to be in 220-240 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams seems to hold an upper hand with both the matches played so far won by chasing tams. DLS equation and rain threat will further tilt the captain to bowl first here.

New Zealand has a strong batting line-up but they might miss the co-ordination in the middle order and were bowled out for 190 & 212 runs so far. 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 top order with inexperienced middle order. Their bowlers have performed well on the slow track and will look to continue their good work. We expect New Zealand to win this match owing to their experience and momentum.

New Zealand will win the match & the series 2-1
