West Indies will be without the services of fast bowler Kemar Roach and wicket-keeper Shane Dowrich for the second Test that starts on Friday, while the hosts could have BJ Watling return to the XI. Joshua Da Silva has been named as the replacement for the injured Dowrich and he expected to star as there are no suitable wicket-keeping options available. Youngster Chemar Holder may come in place of Kemar Roach.
NZ Playing XI: Will Young, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, BJ Watling, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Neil Wagner

Basin reserve is a bowler’s paradise. Pace bowlers in particular have an incredible track record on this wicket. The average total on this wicket is 268 per innings. With as many as 80% of the wins favouring the team batting second, the captain who wins the toss is expected to bowl first.
Players who are expected to perform well as per NZ vs WI Dream11 Teams.
NZ- Kane Williamson
New Zealand captain is a sure shot candidate to score the bulk of runs in this encounter. Just like the previous match, he is expected to score plenty of runs even on this bowling wicket. His average of 66 in Basin Reserve rightly supports this prediction.
WI- Jermaine Blackwood
He scored 104 off 141 balls in the 2nd innings of the first Test to save the Windies from an embarrassing defeat. If there is any batsman in the Windies line-up who is capable of negating the Kiwi pacers, then that’s him.
NZ- Neil Wagner
He was the top wicket-taker for Kiwis in the first Test. Moreover, his ability to pitch the ball consistently in good areas added with his previous track record of taking at least 5 wickets per match in Basin Reserve makes him the bowler to watch out for in this series.
With 3 wickets he was the leading wicket-taker alongside Roach in the first match for the visitors. With Roach returning back home, he is expected to contribute more with the ball.
