Match Preview

The 29th game of the World Cup at Old Trafford, Manchester would be West Indies’ last chance to be in the hunt for a berth in the semi-finals. New Zealand is in a comfortable position at the moment and has remained undefeated in the tournament so far topping the points table. They come into this game with a convincing win over South Africa in their last game. West Indies have had to deal with three consecutive defeats and the last one against Bangladesh would have demoralized the side. 

West Indies aren’t getting their combination right and have been unable to play as a unit in this tournament so far. It will take a lot of fighting spirit and a good game plan for them to defeat the New Zealanders. It will be interesting to see if they do make it happen or New Zealand continues with its good form.

Teams Preview

West Indies

It was a drubbing in the last game for Jason Holder and his side at the hands of Bangladesh. After putting up a big score of 321 runs their lackluster bowling saw Bangladeshis chase down that total with more than eight overs to spare. Holder would know the importance of this game as a loss here would end their hopes of making it to the semi-finals. He would want his side to meet the challenge that Kiwis would throw at them in the next game. 

Evin Lewis, Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer batted well in the last game. Along with Nicholas Pooran they have been consistent in the tournament. It is the form of the big man Chris Gayle that has been worrying about the side. Andre Russell isn't finding it easy and along with Jason Holder he would have to accelerate the scoring towards the end for the side to win this contest.  

Their bowling line-up had a miserable outing in the last game.  Sheldon Cottrell bowled well as he has done in previous games but the rest of the attack seemed clueless with the ball. Jason Holder and Oshane Thomas have to do well with the new ball and the side would have to rethink on its pace attack and use the services of Ashley Nurse in the next game against a strong Kiwi batting line-up. 

West Indies Actual Playing XI:

Kemar Roach, Carlos Brathwaite, Nicholas Pooran, Ashley Nurse, Jason Holder, Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Oshane Thomas, Chris Gayle

New Zealand

Kane Williamson’s team has been thoroughly professional in the tournament so far and is yet to be really put to test. Though their last game against South Africans was a nail bitter they were in control for most parts of the game. As they sit on top of the points table the side would look to maintain the same momentum going into the next game and would look to play according to its strengths.  

Kane Williamson hit a great hundred in tough batting conditions to see his side through against a good bowling attack. This after in-form Martin Guptill, Colin Munro and Ross Taylor were back in the pavilion early in the innings. James Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme supported their skipper well with the latter pulling out the game from South Africa’s hands when they were just looking to dominate the proceedings. They would look to carry on with the same form. 

For New Zealand Trent Boult is yet to produce performance he is known for but Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry have been in good form with the ball in the tournament and picking up wickets at crucial stages of the games. Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell Santner are also doing well with the ball and this makes them a tough bowling attack to score against. 

New Zealand Actual Playing XI:

Trent Boult, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Matt Henry, Mitchell Santner, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, KS Williamson, Lockie Ferguson, Ross Taylor, James Neesham

Pitch And Weather Conditions

The weather prediction for June 22 at Manchester is good and it is expected to be clear skies. The pitch has played well in the two games that we have seen at this venue where batsmen have had a good time out in the middle. It should be a run feast at this venue in the next game and the bowlers are likely to find the conditions challenging. 

Toss Prediction

Sides batting first have put up a huge score in the two games that we have seen at the ground so far. Apart from the initial movement, there isn’t much on this surface for the bowlers. The side winning the toss would definitely elect to bat first and put up a good score on the board.     

Winning Prediction


The two sides have had a contrasting run of form in the tournament so far. While New Zealand hasn’t lost a single game so far West Indies have only a single win to look at. The side comes into this game with three losses and the last one against Bangladesh would have surely dented their confidence. West Indian side doesn’t look settled at the moment in complete contrast to New Zealand. Form separates the two sides and in this game, New Zealand would definitely start as favorites to win this one.
