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.

Players who are expected to perform well as per NZ vs WI Dream11 Teams.

Top Batsman

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.

Top Bowlers

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.

WI-Shanon Gabriel

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.
