West Indies vs New Zealand Preview

The West Indies are looking very dangerous on home soil and are currently five unbeaten. While the Black Caps have a world class unit, they have struggled at the tournament. A win for the World Cup hosts is backed.

  • West Indies’ Nicholas Pooran has scored 61, 75, 75, 27 & 22 in his last 5 innings.
  • West Indies’ Johnson Charles has scored 69, 40 & 44 in his last 4 innings.
  • New Zealand’s Daryl Mitchell has scored 52, 30, 63 & 22 in his last 6 innings.
  • New Zealand’s Finn Allen has scored 137, 22 & 33 in his last 9 innings.


The Black Caps have been victorious in three of their last five T20I games against the West Indies.

West Indies Form

The West Indies followed up their opening win of the tournament against Papua New Guinea by demolishing Uganda by 134 runs. 

The West Indies piled up 173/5 off their 20 overs, Johnson Charles top-scoring with 44,  including four fours and two sixes.

Akeal Hosein produced a magnificent spell of bowling to return figures of 4-0-11-5 (econ 2.75) as Uganda were rolled out for 39 off 12 overs.

West Indies Team News

West Indies are in good form and are unlikely to make any changes to their team.

New Zealand Form

Coming off the back of a 2-2 T20I series draw against Pakistan (including a loss in the final match of the series), New Zealand lost their opening match of the World Cup to Afghanistan by 84 runs.

Afghanistan scored a competitive 159/6 off their 20 overs, Trent Boult delivering the superb figures of 4-0-22-2 (econ 5.50).

New Zealand’s innings imploded as they were bowled out for 75 off 15.2 overs, with Glenn Phillips (18) the only one of the New Zealand top eight to reach double figures.

New Zealand Team News

New Zealand’s batting is struggling to produce their usual quality and they need their top five to bring their A-game against the West Indies.


I am backing West Indies to win. I am also backing Nicholas Pooran to top score for West Indies.

Daryl Mitchell is a good bet to top score for New Zealand.
