NZ vs WI Prediction: The hosts New Zealand has already sealed the T20I series 2-0 and they will be looking to whitewash the visitors in the third and final T20I even with a weakened squad under the leadership of Mitchell Santner. The chances of that happening are quite high until and unless Pollard and co. produces some matchwinning performance contrary to their on-field show so far.

As far as the team selection is concerned, New Zealand has rested three of their players namely captain Tim Southee, Kyle Jameison, and veteran Ross Taylor for the 3rd T20I. Mitchell Santner will lead the team in Southee’s absence. Doug Bracewell, Scott Kuggeleijn, and Mark Chapman have been added in as the replacements.

NZ Playing XI: Martin Guptill, Tim Siefert, Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, Jimmy Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Scott Kuggeleijn, Lockie Ferguson, Dough Bracewell
WI Playing XI: Brandon King, Andre Fletcher, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Fabian Allen, Keemo Paul, Kesrick Williams, Oshane Thomas, Sheldon Cottrell
Bay Oval is historically a high scoring ground, where even the mishits go for maximums. With highly aggressive batsmen lined up in both teams, a high scoring encounter is on the cards. And rightly so it is better to have a score in mind. So chasing is preferred on this batsmen’s paradise.
If New Zealand bats first: 210-220
If West Indies bats first: 170-180
Players who are expected to perform well as per NZ vs WI Dream11 Prediction.
NZ- Devon Conway
This man has literally earned his spot by racking up tons of runs in the domestic circuit. With him showing the same form in the last two matches, the chances of him playing the anchor role and getting a big score are quite high.
WI- Kieron Pollard
With the rest of the batting unit not stepping up to the mark, the responsibility again falls on captain Pollard to deliver with the bat.
Other prominent Batsmen: Martin Guptil, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Philips
NZ- Lockie Ferguson
With his brute pace and deadly toe crushing Yorkers, Lockie was almost unplayable for the Windies batsman in the first match. Expect him to continue the same form,
WI- Sheldon Cottrell
He was one of the very few Windies bowlers who has performed comparatively well in the last two matches. If Windies do stand a chance, then this man should step up with the ball.
Other prominent Bowlers: Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn(if he plays), Oshane Thomas, Ish Sodhi
NZ- Glenn Phillips
WI- Kieron Pollard
Player of the Match
Conway has scored tons of runs in the domestic circuit and even showed great promise in the first two matches. We are expecting him to play a long innings in this match. So he is our prediction for the ‘Player of the Match’ category.
Suitable Captaincy Picks: Lockie Ferguson, Kieron Pollard, Glenn Phillips
Suitable VC Picks: Mitchell Santner, Devon Conway, Martin Guptil, Nicholas Pooran
