Power Play scores:
West Indies openers are known for destructive batting. But for the past some time, they failed to deliver on almost every occasion. If they want to remain in series contention then their openers need to bounce back strongly otherwise they will another series in the span of just 10 days. Still we believe that West Indies can score in between 45 to 50 runs in the first six overs.
While New Zealand might put 50-55 runs on board during the power play overs.
Death Over scores:
With the kind of batters West Indies have they can post 40 to 45 runs in the final few overs. New Zealand, on the other hand, may score 35 to 40 runs in the final four overs as they also have some powerful batters who can create a huge impact on the game’s outcome with their bat during the final few overs.
West Indies could post 170-180 in their 20-over quota. While New Zealand might put 180-190 runs on board, if they opted to bat first.
Who will win Today’s match between WI Vs NZ?
The visitors played a good cricket in the first T20I by beating the hosts by 13 runs to take 1-0 lead in the series and they will like to carry forward the winning momentum by winning second match of the 3-match T20I series on Friday.
West Indies, who last week faced defeat by 4-1 against India, are currently on back foot but they will look to bounce back to remain in series contention, so it will be an interesting match to follow as both team will try hard to win the game. However, considering both teams’ recent performances we can say that New Zealand might win the second T20I match against West Indies.
