Probable Playing XI for WI vs NZ Dream11 Match:
The hosts have not been up to the mark in the recent past. In their recently concluded series against India, they just collapsed quickly and were able to win only a single match. In the first T20I against New Zealand, they however did well but again fell short by 13 runs. They will probably keep the same XI for tomorrow.
Predicted Playing XI:
Shamarh Brooks, Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran (c), Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Devon Thomas (wk), Jason Holder, Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy
New Zealand are on a roll this year as they are winning the T20I series after the T20I series. They have the perfect combination for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup as well. They will also field the same XI for tomorrow’s game.
Predicted Playing XI:
Devon Conway (wk), Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson (c), Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson
Top Picks for WI vs NZ Dream11 Match:
Odean Smith has played some really good cricket for West Indies in the past and will look to continue the same form against New Zealand as well. In the first T20I, he managed to grab 3 wickets while conceding 32 runs. A lot will depend on him for tomorrow’s match.
The skipper started off his inning well by hitting two boundaries but could not get a big score. He will have to perform better in tomorrow’s match.
Mayers has been in good form and is giving West Indies good starts in T20Is. But in the last match, he was bowled for just one run. His best innings in T20I in the recent past has been 73 from 50 balls against India in the 3rd T20I but since then has not been able to score in his last four T20Is.
Conway was in exceptional form in this year’s IPL and brought it into good use in the first match where he smashed 43 from 29 balls with a strike rate of 148.3.
Williamson was the highest run-scorer in the match with 47 on his return to T20I cricket. He will now try to play another brilliant knock in tomorrow’s crucial match.
The Kiwi allrounder remained not out on 33 from 15 balls which helped his team reach a big total. On his European tour, he played very similar knocks as well.
Players to avoid for WI vs NZ Dream11 Match:
In the first match, McCoy proved costly yet again as he conceded 39 runs while taking one wicket. Against India, McCoy was quite economical but now he is struggling for consistency.
He has not bowled for New Zealand for quite some time now and has scored a solitary fifty in his last 8 T20Is.
