Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match:

Ross Taylor

Ross Taylor was dismissed early for just four runs in the previous game, however, he played international cricket in the month of April this year and hence, he is more likely to make runs. The skipper has enough experience under his belt and will be looking to step up for his side in the same way he had done it for New Zealand over the years. 

Probable best bowler of the match:

Shane Bond

Shane Bond was one of the quickest bowlers of his era and his pace had rattled a lot of batters. The speedster played the previous game against South Africa Legends and finished with 0 for 9 in his two overs. Given his match winning abilities, New Zealand Legends will look up to him to lead the bowling attack.
