WI VS NZ Match Toss Prediction

This will be the fifth T20I played at the Brian Lara Stadium. The most recent match was won by the team chasing, but the three previous ones were all won by the team batting first. If they win the toss, both skippers will want to bat first, according to our prediction.

West Indies vs New Zealand Betting Tips

Nicholas Pooran hit three sixes from number three in the success over Uganda and the left-given manager player is definitely worth sponsorship as West Indies’ most noteworthy run scorer in this match. From the two opening games, Akeal Hosein has taken 6/20, making him our pick for the West Indies’ best wicket-taker against New Zealand.

New Zealand’s all’s players had a night to remember in their initial match against Afghanistan however Daryl Mitchell has been in superb structure and he is an area of strength for a for their most elevated run scorer against West Indies. Trent Boult took 2/22 in Match 14 and he is our tip for New Zealand’s top wicket taker in this game.

We recommend backing Akeal Hosein to take over 1.5 wickets in this match, as he currently has a strike rate of 7.00 in the 2024 T20 World Cup.

Top Betting Tips for West Indies vs New Zealand Match

WI Team News

West Indies are expected to use the same eleven players for this match after winning their first two games with those 11 players. After defeating Uganda in just 12 overs in Match 18, the bowling attack should be particularly fresh.

NZ Team News

After the loss to Afghanistan, Captain Kane Williamson was reflecting, but he was keen to emphasize that “we know we are better than that.” It would be surprising if the Black Caps made any changes to the team for this match.

West Indies vs New Zealand Betting Odds

Prior to this match, the bookmakers expected West Indies to win. They are priced at 1.60, while New Zealand is priced at 2.25, to win the tournament for the first time.

Who will win the WI vs NZ Match?

New Zealand have been one of the top sides throughout the past ten years across all arrangements of worldwide cricket yet there have been signs that their side is somewhat on the decline. We consider the West Indies to be the best team heading into this match because of their success in Twenty20 cricket over the past 18 months.

WI vs NZ Top Team Batsmen

Our West Indies batting recommendations include Rovman Powell, Nicholas Pooran, and Johnson Charles, who play for the top team against New Zealand. In the most recent match, opener Charles scored the most points for West Indies, hitting 44 with four fours and two sixes. In his 63 innings of T20I cricket, Powell has scored 38 runs in the first two games and has a strike rate of 143.92.

Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, and Kane Williamson are our picks for New Zealand’s batting. Phillips, who bats at number five, was the only batter in the top eight to score in the double digits against Afghanistan, and his power may be crucial in this match. Williamson has scored over 2550 runs in 88 innings of T20Is, including 18 half-centuries.

Top Team Bowlers for WI vs. NZ 

Our picks for West Indies’ bowlers are Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, and Andre Russell. Joseph is a true pace bowler who has taken two wickets in both tournament games and the final warm-up match against Australia. Robinson Obuya was bowled by Russell even though he only bowled one over against Uganda. The 36 year old will play in his 500th T20I match and has taken 452 wickets across his vocation.

For New Zealand, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson and Mitchell Santner are our bowling tips. In the T20Is he has played against West Indies, right-arm fast bowler Ferguson has an impressive economy rate of 6.17 and has also picked up five wickets in head-to-head matches. On this surface, it will be very difficult for Mitchell Santner to attack the dangerous Nicholas Pooran, who has a strong record against him.

WI VS NZ Pitch Report

The Brian Lara Stadium always has some turn for the spinners, and we anticipate that this match will be no exception. Similarly there will be some great speed in the wicket and development for the quicks. It will be difficult to recover from any score between 165 and 170 in the first inning.

Trinidad Weather Report

As indicated by the conjecture, it will be incredibly muggy all through this coordinate with the levels at 72% in any case and up to 83% by and by. From the beginning to the end, the temperature will be in the mid-20s.


After their weighty loss against Afghanistan, New Zealand are feeling the squeeze in front of this match and we anticipate that they should emerge and assemble an exceptionally impressive and cutthroat presentation. However, we do not believe they will be able to compete with the West Indies, who already possess a significant amount of momentum. We believe that the West Indies will prevail in this close contest.
