NZ vs WI today match prediction: West Indies are in desperate need for a victory. They were pathetic in the 1st game with both bat and ball. Though, Kane Williamson outclassed them with the bat, their batsmen were reckless to say the least. No one showed resistance with the bat in both the innings except Jermaine Blackwood and Alzarri Joseph.
Lets take a look at NZ vs WI dream11 prediction
In NZ vs WI today match prediction, lets bring out the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides
New Zealand (NZ)
They are invincible in their home. They just don’t have any loopholes in their side. Their batters are in top form. Their bowlers are in supreme form.
West Indies (WI)
The form of Jermaine Blackwood is the only positive for them at the moment. The resistance shown by their openers towards the end of 2nd day should be something they should look up to gain some confidence.
New Zealand (NZ)
Their middle order might be a bit of a problem if West Indies take some early wickets upfront with the new ball but that is a distant dream.
West Indies (WI)
No batsmen in that lineup average more than 40 in test cricket and the problem starts right there. They badly need someone to standup to hold the innings together like the way Kane Williamson did for the Kiwis in the first game.
