We are almost at the midway mark in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, and the things are already beginning to take shape beautifully. England, New Zealand, Australia, and India seem to be moving ahead and broadening the gap between them and the rest of the teams while the likes of Afghanistan, South Africa, and West Indies are languishing near the bottom of the ladder. If the same trend continues in the second of the competition, things are only going to get more precise. However, in case we get to see some upsets, things will get interesting. The next match, between New Zealand and West Indies, should clear it up even further. The game is set to be played at Old Trafford, Manchester on Saturday, 22nd June.
West Indies started this tournament with a massive win over Pakistan wherein they folder the Asian team for a paltry total of 105, but they haven't been able to produce anything similar after that. Their performance against the Australians in their next match was commendable, but they failed to garner those two points, as their batsmen failed to chase down a relatively comfortable to chase total on that surface.
In the earlier half of the tournament, it was their batting which wasn't firing and bowling was doing its job reasonably well. However, it was the exact opposite in their last match where Bangladesh chased down their par score of 321 with 8.3 over to spare.
Coming into the tournament, Chris Gayle and Andre Russell were two of their leading players who were heavily depended upon to produce the goods. They've so far been kept quiet by the opponents, which has put their middle-order under an extra bit of pressure.
Evin Lewis has failed in both aspects - to provide a quick-fire start to their innings as well as in keeping his wicket intact and play a sheet-anchor role. Shai Hope and Jason Holder have done well so far, but they'd need the other guys to step up.
With the race to the semi-finals beginning to tighten up and West Indies needing to win all their remaining matches, the likes of Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, and Evin Lewis would have to unleash themselves in their remaining fixtures. Considering that they still have a match to go against India after New Zealand, things aren't expected to be easy, but Windies are well and truly capable of toppling any side on their day.
Update: Carlos Braithwaite will replace Andre Russell who is out of this fixture due to a knee injury. The extent of his injury is yet to be known and it remains to be seen whether or not he will be part of Windies' upcoming fixtures.

Although it's been a slow climb for the Kiwis without any flamboyance whatsoever, they've steadily strengthened their position at the top of the table. They are yet to face a defeat in the tournament and are currently at the second spot with nine points in five games, behind Australia.
One could argue that all of their wins have been against the easier teams to face, but the performance they have displayed in all three departments of the game has been commendable. James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, and Colin de Grandhomme have all contributed whenever required as was evident in their last two matches. With their all-rounders doing well, they have an immaculately balanced side which that has covered all their bases.
While they do not really have a significant problem to address as of now with most of their batsmen being amongst the runs and bowlers picking up wickets, the inconsistency of Colin Munro and Martin Guptill at the top of the might be a cause of concern - to pinpoint one. Having said that, Martin Guptill looked in fine form in the last match before he was dismissed in a rather bizarre fashion. He will also have fond memories against West Indies from the 2015 World Cup where he smashed a double hundred in the quarter-final fixture.
They have an exceptionally well-balanced batting lineup with the aggression of Munro and Guptill at the top and the calmness and experience of Williamson and Taylor to follow. It was the depth of their lineup which was responsible for their win over South Africa in the last match, coupled of course with the splendid knock from Kane Williamson. With batting doing well and a balanced bowling attack, the Kiwis are a formidable unit and may go all the way in the tournament.

With the surface, not expected to change over the course of the match and it is highly unlikely that the rain will make an impact here, the pressure of chasing totals in big games could be a decisive factor. Having said that, both the sides have done better after putting their opponents in, in the tournament so far and we expect the decision to be taken at the toss this time around as well.

The rain has played a major role in the tournament so far and this edition of the marquee event is already the one which has been impacted by the rain the most. However, we have been pretty lucky over the past few days as the rain has subsided and we have managed to get more or less full games. It's bright and sunny in Manchester with a bit of cloud covering. Talking about surface, it is expected to be similar to what we saw in India v Pakistan fixture, that is a belter of a surface and a score of more than 320 is a must batting first.

It's going to be a high-stakes encounter for West Indies at Old Trafford. They have a motivation to stay in the tournament and are likely to come out all guns blazing. Unless of course, they get some magical innings from Chris Gayle or Andre Russell, things aren't going to be easy for them with Kiwis oozing with confidence on the back of their superb wins in their last few matches. The Kiwis have an in-form batting unit and a varied bowling attack capable of containing as well as dismiss even the best in the business. Considering the form as well as the balance of the two sides, the Kiwis are hot favorites to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
