New Zealand and West Indies played out an absolutely thrilling first T20 international. The six-hitting that we saw was completely out of the ordinary and even a total of 180 in just 16 overs could not be defended. In the middle of it all, we also saw a fantastic five-wicket haul from Lockie Ferguson.
The hosts now have a 1-0 lead in the series and so this match becomes a must-win for the tourists. Can the West Indies find a way to allow its big guns to fire in tandem or will New Zealand’s home advantage prove to be too much once more?
The action shifts to the Bay Oval where the bowlers may have a bit of respite but the batsmen will still dominate.
New Zealand vs West Indies 2nd T20 2020 is going to be played at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on the 29th of November 2020.
The New Zealand bowling was put to the sword as it faced an unrelentingly aggressive West Indian tea. Lockie Ferguson was the difference in this match as he had an immediate impact. The West Indies were 54 for no loss before he came on in just three overs.
Ferguson starting picking up wickets and was helped by Tim Southee at the other end.
This ability to take wickets is invaluable and something that New Zealand will try to replicate in the next match as well. Hamish Bennett, Jimmy Neesham, and Mitchell Santner went the distance, though, and there may be room for a possible change.
Bennett is the most vulnerable here since both Neesham and Santner contribute with the bat as well.
New Zealand’s batting was very impressive. We love the look of Devon Conway at the top of the order. He seems to be a player that is going to be around for a long time. Martin Guptill and Tim Seifert missed out but they are both proven players. It is just a matter of time before they get going.
The same is true for Ross Taylor as well.
New Zealand’s lower order is in good form and that should provide the top-order to play with freedom in the upcoming matches as well.
Martin Guptill, Tim Seifert, Devon Conway, GD Phillips, Ross Taylor, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, TG Southee, Ish Sodhi, Kyle Jamieson, Lockie Ferguson.
The West Indies squandered a phenomenal start to lose wickets in a clutch and were reduced to 59 for 5 from being 54-0.
Kieron Pollard, the best T20 batsman in the world in our opinion, and Fabian Allen were able to strike back and get the West Indies to what should have been a winning total. Especially after they had got most of the New Zealand top-order out.
The West Indies made the classic mistake of going too hard looking at the size of the boundaries in New Zealand. Their players are better than just sloggers and they need to back their abilities.
Hetmyer and Pooran can do a lot of damage if they just stick to their natural game.
The West Indies batting has inherent class and should hit back but its bowling is a massive problem. None of the bowlers were able to hit their lengths at the death and there were far too many freebies on offer. To bowl 6 no-balls in one T20 inning is just criminal.
We are afraid that the West Indies team will always find the need to compensate for its bowling because no total is safe for it to defend. The West Indies is going to be much more effective chasing than it is batting first.
ADS Fletcher, Brandon King, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Kieron Pollard, F Allen, Keemo Paul, Kyle Mayers, Oshane Thomas, Sheldon Cottrell.
We think the toss is very important. Both teams will want to chase if they win the toss and that should be seen as a big advantage. The power-hitting abilities in the two teams are immense and so defending a total is going to be very tough. Historically, however, 8 out of the 9 complete T20 internationals at this ground have been won by the team batting first.

We think there is no doubt that the Bay Oval will serve up another batting belter. The boundaries are a bit bigger in this match but still small compared to other grounds around the world. The batsmen are going to be able to clear the boundaries with ease. The average first-inning score is just 172, though, and that shows that teams can fall short targeting too much.
The team that bats first is going to want at least 200 to feel somewhat comfortable in our opinion.

The West Indies have a phenomenal batting lineup but their bowling is just too poor. As we have seen in the past, the better-balanced team tends to win out more often than not and that is New Zealand. The West Indies is a very dangerous team, but we have to stick with the home team in this one.
Bet on New Zealand to win
Phillips smashed three sixes in the first five balls he was at the crease and that is not a rare feat for him. He is known as one of the best hitters of the cricket ball in New Zealand. We think he is in good form and should be able to get at least one big hit to get you a 70% return on your stake!
Yes, the return is small but is not insignificant. This is a banker bet, one that is almost sure of coming through. Everything in its favor and so to get a 20% return on something that seems almost certain is not a bad option. Bet big and make your return significant.
