Wet Indies would be really upset after three consecutive defeats and would be highly desperate to snatch the victory when they lock horns against New Zealand in the 29th fixture of ICC World Cup 2019.

This game is scheduled to be played at Old Trafford in Manchester on Saturday evening.

Talking about Kiwis, the captain Kane would be quite impressed with the performance of the entire team and the way they played against South Africa, it was eye soothing.

This victory makes them sit on the top post position on the points table with 9 points in their pocket, whereas windies are on the 7th spot with three points to their name.

Ross Taylor: This Kiwi legend has always delivered at the big stages. He is third best batsmen in this format. He has been playing some good cricket so far and would definitely turn as an exception in the game against West Indies. He holds an average of 53.00 against West Indies with the highest score being 110 runs.

So far he has scored 82, 48, 1 in last three games and would reframe his stat after being dismissed poorly in the last game.

S Hetmyer: Hetmyer is filling the shoes for Andre Russell. He has been exceptional till date. Having an average of 39 and a strike rate of 106.36, this player could really turn up things for Windies.

He has scored 39 and 50 runs in last two games for Windies and is expected to cross this bar in the game against Windies.
