    WI vs NZ Dream11 Prediction: West Indies were taken down in the T20I series 2-1 by New Zealand. Now the hosts will look to change their fortunes in the ODI series starting from today at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.

    West Indies are having a havoc time in white ball cricket as they have lost both their limited series against India last month and now against New Zealand they have already lost the T20I series. Nicholas Pooran men should look to crawl back and put up a better show against a top tier New Zealand outfit.

    The visitors will enter as the firm favorites in this match given they will be playing with a full strength squad. Williamson will be back donning the captain’s hat, whereas the pace battery of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Lockie Ferguson will be at the forefront. New Zealand have a brilliant chance of taking out West Indies for good.
