New Zealand vs West Indies ICC World Cup 2019 warm-up game is going to be a very interesting one to watch. While no one is rating either of these teams among the favorites to win the cricket world cup, they are being talked about as ‘dark horses’.
For New Zealand, this is nothing new. They seem to be outside contenders at every ICC World Cup or other multi-nation events ever since we can remember. The West Indies, on the other hand, has not been considered a serious threat in a 50 over tournament for the longest time. It is the return of some of the West Indies’s most dangerous players back into the fold that has opponents worried.
New Zealand is a well-drilled side where you sort of know what you are going to get while the West Indies can be a lot more unpredictable. This is only a warm-up game but both teams would be keen to lay down a marker.
Only 12.4 overs were bowled by the West Indies in their first warm-up match before it was called off due to bad weather. The West Indies would be keen to get out on the ground and find out a bit more about their side since they looked ordinary in that short amount of time.
The West Indies gave up 95 runs in the 12.4 overs against South Africa and did not take a single wicket. This is not something that they would want a repeat of. It is no use having a strong batting lineup filled with big-hitters of your bowling is going to be completely ineffective.
Jason Holder said after the match that his bowlers bowed a little shorter than required. Hopefully, another warm-up game against New Zealand will help them find their feet and get used to the conditions.
Jason Holder, Sheldon Cottel, Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas, and Shannon Gabriel make a pretty decent pace bowling attack and can definitely pose some questions to the New Zealanders. Gabriel only bowled two deliveries in the previous match before walking off the field and it is unclear if he will play a part in this match.
The real exciting part about the West Indies side is its batting, though. Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Jason Holder, and even Ashley Nurse are all capable of playing some exciting cricket.
The West Indies have a lot of options available to them in the squad and narrowing down the playing eleven is not going to be an easy task. The fact that the West Indies have good depth in their squad and match-winners like Gayle and Russell in their side makes them very dangerous.
Don’t expect them to take the warm-ups too seriously, though.

An excellent bowling performance led by Trent Boult led New Zealand to victory against India in the first opening match and showed just why no one can count out New Zealand at the ICC World Cup 2019. New Zealand is a very good ODI side and it has experienced players at the top of their game in almost all positions.
Aggressive opening batsmen? Martin Guptill and Colin Munro. Strong batting core? Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, and Tom Latham. Power in the middle? Jimmy Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme.
Ask any question of the side and there is a compelling answer.
New Zealand managed to reach the final of the cricket world cup in 2015 before being outplayed by Australia and would be desperate to go one better this time around.
Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor are not only the best ODI batsmen for New Zealand but they are also among the best ODI batsmen in the world. These are the two players that we believe have to have a great series for New Zealand to be a threat.
The bowling unit is going to be led by Trent Boult who becomes very dangerous if there is even a hint of swing on offer. He is going to be partnered by Lockie Ferguson and one out of Matt Henry or Tim Southee.
Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner may both get a run in this match although we have no doubt that Santner is going to start for New Zealand come the actual world cup.
KS Williamson, TA Blundell, TA Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, James Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, IS Sodhi, TG Southee, Ross Taylor, Matt Henry, TWM Latham, Colin Munro.
The team winning the toss is likely to want to bat first and get the maximum possible practice for its batting lineup.

West Indies vs New Zealand ICC World Cup 2019 warm-up match is going to be played at the County Ground, Bristol. There is some rain around in Bristol although the forecast for match day in Bristol is pretty good.
We are likely to have a couple of showers but nothing that should cause an extended hold-up.
Bristol is one of the flattest batting wickets we will see in the cricket world cup 2019. There are plenty of runs to be had and with both sides packed with power hitters, anything is possible.
The Dream11 team for West Indies vs New Zealand ICC World Cup 2019 warm-up match is going to be heavily in favor of New Zealand. As we have mentioned in the betting preview, we think New Zealand is a far more professional side with less variation in their performances. The West Indian players, on the other hand, find it difficult to turn up for their national side as a matter of routine!
Wicketkeeper: Tom Latham and Shai Hope are easy picks in this category. Shai Hope has just come off a magnificent ODI series in Ireland where he scored a mountain of runs. Tom Latham is another excellent batsman that is expected to be sent higher up the batting order to get enough practice.
Batsmen: Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Ross Taylor, Shimron Hetmyer, and Evin Lewis are the players we are hoping will make an impact in this game. All of these players are almost certain to start the first match for their respective teams and thus get some time in the middle. They also bat in the top-order where the best chance of scoring runs exists.
All-rounders: Jimmy Neesham is the only all-rounder we have picked. Andre Russell is an easy choice for most matches but his fitness is always a little bit in question so we don't think the West Indies is going to risk its biggest match-winner in a warm-up match too much.
Bowlers: Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, and Sheldon Cottrell are the players that we have picked for this match. It looks like Matt Henry is going to be fighting for his place in the middle with Tim Southee and should have some extra motivation while the other two bowlers are proven wicket-takers.
Captain and Vice-Captain: We have picked Martin Guptill as the captain and Lockie Ferguson as the vice-captain for this match.

Both New Zealand and the West Indies are very dangerous sides but there is no doubt in our mind that New Zealand is the more professional side of the two. They are going to turn up for the warm-up game much more motivated than some of the West Indian players and that is why we believe it is a safe bet to back the Kiwis.
Bet on New Zealand to win.
