New Zealand vs West Indies 1st ODI Match Preview

New Zealand is having an official tour of the West Indies consisting of 3-T20Is and 3-ODI matches. They have recently claimed the T20 series by 2-1, now marching to face fierce West Indies in this longer format of the game. The lately in-form performances by Kiwi’s squad nominates them as hot favorites in the upcoming clash, scheduled on 17th August 2022 at Bridgetown.

Kiwis will play under the captaincy of Kane Williamson. Their other well-oiled squad includes Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, and Matt Henry as batters, while Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, and Tim Southee will be spearhead pacers. In addition, the previous playing record shows New Zealand holds a wide clear winning margin over their opposition.

In contrast, West Indies have many problems to address as their batting problems are evident. During the last T20 matches, none of the Caribbean players displayed cricket in a disciplined manner. The host side needs to work on those flaws and errors that cost them shameful defeats in previous games.

New Zealand vs West Indies Today Match Prediction 

New Zealand Will Win This Match

Cricketing experts are acknowledging New Zealand as the Hot Favorite in the 1st ODI match. Their recent performances against the same and many other cricketing sides are a great example of this opinion. In addition, they feature comparatively experienced playing squad, which could give them a clear tactical edge over their opposition.

The hosting team, West Indies, looks determined to break the shackles by playing against all the odds. In fact, they have a competitive squad built of spinners, pacers, and batters, but their inconsistent performances are the ultimate reason for their lean patch. The team lacks collaboration, team efforts, and hard work to restore their name among the top cricketing sides of the world.

Bridgetown Pitch Conditions

Bridgetown is an international cricket ground in West Indies. The stadium hosted many cricketing battles in the past and witnessed historical performances from the bat and ball from the world’s best cricket personalities. West Indies will take on New Zealand on this surface that looks incredible for a high-scoring cricket game. It has rough patches and moisture that could help the batters to score some runs.

Nevertheless, bowlers would also abstract a bit of advantage from this surface, especially with the new ball. According to experts, it would be a good decision for either captain to win the toss and decide to bat 1st. As the pitch did support batters during the earlier time of the day, and it will be the best opportunity for them to post a handsome target on the scoreboard.
