New Zealand Vs West Indies Possible Star Batter Of The Match

Kane Williamson

Kane Williamson is one of the best batters in the world. In the opening game of this series against West Indies, he was playing his 1st T20I in 2022. The kiwi’s skipper scored a brilliant knock of 47 runs from just 33 balls including 2 sixes and 4 fours. His superb knock helped New Zealand to post a good total on the board. Williamson is a technically-sound batter of this era and he is expected to play another match-winning inning for his side on Friday.

New Zealand Vs West Indies Probable Star Bowler Of The Match

Mitchell Santner

Mitchell Santner was the star of the first T20I and he will be the key weapon for New Zealand in the second game yet again. The left-arm spinner picked up the important wickets of Shamarh Brooks, Nicholas Poora, and Shemron Hetmyer to rattle the West Indian batting lineup. He is in excellent form with the bowl as he is averaging under 23 with the economy rate of just 6.83 in T20Is this year. He could once again prove the game changer for the black caps in the 2nd game with his variations.

New Zealand Vs West Indies Match Prediction Who Will Win

New Zealand batted brilliantly in the 1st T20I and their bowlers also bowled well to defend the target against the West Indies batting lineup. Hence, they are looking in great touch in both departments of the game.

On the other hand, nothing is going in West Indies favor as they have lost their 4th consecutive match in T20Is. They are struggling with both bat and bowl.

Hence, we predict that New Zealand will beat West Indies in the 2nd T20I of this series.
