Now with just one game left in the eight matches series comprising of 2 test matches 3 ODI and 3 T20, the visitors would try hard to grab a win. So far they haven’t succeeded in acquiring a win at the home conditions of the Black Caps. New Zealand, on the other hand, would like to put the final pin in the coffin with a win. After a clean sweep of the three-match ODI series, New Zealand would be eyeing on another clean sweep when they will host West Indies for the third and last T20 scheduled at Bay Oval tomorrow. The hosts also swept the test series 2-0. The WI Vs NZ match preview is listed below.

Nothing much can be said about the pitch. Moreover, the team bowling first has more winning-percentage. Rain is expected to interfere the game like the last game on New Year’s Eve.
