WI vs NZ 1st T20I Live Cricket Match
Good News International cricket is back in a full frenzy! After England, it was New Zealand who announced a bumper home Circuit season, with West Indies cricket Teems being the inaugural opponent. Boy, the Windies go everywhere, don’t they? And rightly, the tour kicks off with a 3-match T20I series.
Because of the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League, followed by the Indian T20 cricket League, which had plenty of West Indians cricket participating, there was no warm-up cricket match scheduled for this format. And we can understand why. Pollard, Fletcher, Cottrell, Powell, Hetmyer, Pooran, wow.
Almost the entire squad has been playing eleven some form or the other of T20 cricket Match! Does that give them an edge? Might well do. Because if you look at the Kiwi squad, no one has played cricket except 3-4 players, leave T20 cricket permanently afterlife, and this game a standstill post-February 2020.
But there is enough experience in that Teems squad to pack a punch. This may seem like a long time ago, but in early 2020, the Indians reduced the Black Caps to 5-0, with 2 of them a Super Over, that too dragged from a winning position.
If we look at their overall T20I cricket history, they are on a 7-match losing streak, or if we include tied cricket games, they have not tasted victory for 7 T20Is on the trot. Now they meet a team that feels extremely confident in a leader like Kieran Pollard. Historically, New Zealand leads 6-3 over West Indies in terms of win-loss ratio but they might have to play out of their skins to stop their losing rut.
