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 in the first T20 scheduled at Saxton Oval tomorrow. New Zealand won the first ODI by 5 wickets and later claimed the second ODI by 204 runs. The visitors proved out to be the worst side in the last ODI and lost by 66 runs under DLS Method. The hosts also swept the test series 2-0. SO now, they would be having an eye on complete whitewash in the T20 series. The WI Vs NZ match preview is listed below.
