The hosts are leading the series by 1-0 as they have finally broken their losing streak in ODIs. The Caribbean side now also has a big chance of winning a series against the black caps. On the other hand, New Zealand must need to win the 2nd game to keep the series alive.

But unfortunately, both Martin Guptill and Fabian Allen failed to score big and got out on 25 and 24 runs respectively.

New Zealand continued to lose wickets throughout the innings but due to some small cameos from Michael Bracewell (31 runs) and Mitchell Santner (25 runs), the kiwi side managed to reach 190 runs. Akeal Hosein was superb with the ball as he picked up 3 wickets for 28 runs from his 10 overs at an economy rate of fewer than 3 runs per over. Alzari Joseph also claimed a 3-wicket haul while Jason Holder picked up 2 wickets.

New Zealand was brilliant in the shortest format but they were completely outplayed by West Indies in the opening game of this 3-match ODI series. The batting department failed to deliver and they will need to make a strong comeback in the second ODI to level the series.

Meanwhile, West Indies have a huge chance of winning this series and they will be hoping to repeat the performance of the 1st ODI. The batting department needs to play a little bit in the next game.

We predict that New Zealand will beat West Indies in the 2nd ODI of this series.
