NZ vs WI Dream11 Prediction | New Zealand vs West Indies Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News
New Zealand has definitely broadcasted their presence, thrashing India in their first warm-up of the World Cup. With the help of their bowling duo, Tim Southee and Trent Boult, who collectively grabbed 5 wickets out of which Boult had grabbed 2 wickets in the first 4 overs of the match. They restricted India to a measly 179-10. With the help of the consistency of Ross Taylor (71) and Kane Williamson (67), the pair scored a partnership of 100+, helping New Zealand to the score of 180, winning them the match.
West Indies, on the other hand, couldn't get some practice in, as their first warm-up was halted due to rain. The squad looked lackluster in the recent tri-series against Ireland and Bangladesh, where Windies couldn't win a single match against Bangladesh. Hopefully, with the addition of veteran players Chris Gayle and Andre Russell, Windies are able to bring back their prowess which was visible in the series against England.
The match, if not interrupted by the weather, should be a challenge for both sides. They played the latest ODI against each other way back in 2017, in which New Zealand won the series 3-0. This is also the last warm-up match after which the official games start. The first official match being between England and South Africa.

Chris Gayle will be a man to watch out for. This will be playing his last World Cup before retirement. He recently got back from playing in the IPL for Kings XI Punjab where he was the 6th highest scorer overall with 490 runs.
Trent Boult, the star player for New Zealand in the last match against Inda, picked up 4 wickets for only 33 runs in 6.2 overs. He looks to be confident especially on English soil and should wreak havoc against Windies.
Windies' Shai Hope was very dependable in the tri-series against Ireland and Bangladesh. He put up good numbers (total 470 runs in 5 matches).
The New Zealand duo, comprising of Trent Boult and Tim Southee have looked great so far. With the new ball, they've been able to grab early wickets in the game and also keep the batsmen humble. Versus India, Southee only gave away 26 runs in the 7 overs he bowled while taking one wicket in the process.
Andre Russel is back in the Windies squad. The last ODI he played for his team was back in 2018 versus Bangladesh. He played for the Kolkata Knight Riders where he scored 510 runs and got 11 wickets in the 14 matches he played.
