NZ vs WI Prediction, Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips: Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – West Indies Tour of New Zealand, 3rd T20I

New Zealand are expected to make a clean sweep by beating West Indies 3-0.

Match Details:

The 3rd match of the T20 International Series between New Zealand and West Indies will be played at the Bay Oval Ground in Mount Maunganui.

The match is scheduled to start at 11:30 AM IST (06:00 AM GMT).

Preview:

Having won the first two games, New Zealand have already taken an unassailable lead in this series. They have won both of their first two T20Is against West Indies. The first match was close and New Zealand needed a spirited effort from the batsmen to script a win.

However, the second T20I was far more comfortable for them. New Zealand scored a mammoth 238 in their 20 overs. West Indies needed a miracle from their batsmen, but what they got instead was below par. The men from the Caribbean could only muster 166 runs. Their aim will now be to avoid a whitewash at any cost.


NZ vs WI Weather Report for Match 2:

The temperature is expected to be around 18 Degrees Celsius. However, the bad news for fans of cricket is that the chances of precipitation are 70%.

Pitch Report

The pitch is favouring the batsmen, and so is the size of the ground. Overall, anything less than 190 should be considered as a poor total in this ground.
