Match Preview

In the 26th of 55 clashes in the T20 World Cup 2024, co-hosts West Indies will be up against New Zealand. The game is set to take place on Thursday, June 13, at the Brian Lara Academy in Trinidad. Seeded in Group C, West Indies are currently placed second on the standings whereas New Zealand have taken up the bottom-most spot with four and zero points, respectively. While the co-hosts would aim to continue their dominance at home ground, Kiwis would wish to earn a few points and get prompted to an upper spot in the points table.

Toss Prediction

The Windies and Black Caps have been up against each other in 19 games in the shortest format. Considering their last five meetings, New Zealand skipper came on top in three tosses, whereas West Indies won two tosses. However, considering the fact that the forthcoming game will be played at a Caribbean venue, Rovman Powell is likely to have an upper hand over New Zealand’s Kane Williamson to win the toss.

Win Possibility

Pool C members West Indies and New Zealand are set to rub shoulders against each other at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad and Tobago. West Indies pulled off a huge 134 win and crushed their counterparts Uganda in their last game. Windies bowlers, especially Akeal Hosein, went all out and proved their mettle by scaping quick wickets and restricting their rivals at a low score. If West Indies wish to keep their momentum going, they need to continue deliver same kind of stellar performances with both bat and ball. 

New Zealand is a stronger team and hence, facing it would be a tough challenge for the co-hosts and two-time T20 World Cup winners. The Kiwis  have played one game so far but couldn’t register win and failed to begin their 2024 campaign on a favourable note. The Kiwis need to pull up their socks and come with match-winning performances. 

If we consider the past records, New Zealand have had an upper hand as they won 11 out of 19 games against West Indies. However, West Indies have a brilliant record in the tournament, along with the home-ground advantage. Considering this, we think West Indies are highly likely to make the most of their records and win the upcoming game.
