West Indies tour of New Zealand, 2017-18

The series opener between West Indies and Black Caps begins on December 1 at Basin Reserve in Wellington. The practice match played between the visitors and the New Zealand A ended with a draw. Sunil Ambris, Shai Hope, Raymond Rafer and Roston Chase showed good form in the match. Now with the main battle starting from Friday, the real prowess of West Indies will be judged. Although New Zealand is undergoing several changes day by day, still they are believed to offer tough competition to visitors in their home conditions. Tim Southee is not playing the first match as he is awaiting his child’s birth. Moreover, the wicket-keeper batsman BJ Watling has also been replaced by Tom Blundell as he hasn’t fully recovered from his hip injury.

West Indies, on the other hand, is expected to play with the same team that they had in the practice match.
