Newzealand cricket Team has a great home season and have showed excellent performance in all matches so far. Today is the last t20 match which is played between these two teams
Having won the first T20I at Auckland comfortably,New Zealand will go all guns blazing in the final game of the tour and look to end the series on a high note when the two sides meet at Wellington on Wednesday.
The fact that almost all their players have been in excellent form helps their cause even more. The hosts will love to have the T20I trophy all to themselves after winning the first game quite comprehensively. The top-order has been consistent with decent, if not extra-ordinary, performances. Skipper Brendon McCullum has led by example. He put up an excellent 85-run stand with Luke Ronchi in the previous match to propel New Zealand to a big total.
On the other hand West Indies cricket team levelled the ODI series 2-2 with an special performance in the final game. Taking on New Zealand in their favourite format of the game, it was anticipated that they will put on a strong fight. However, unpredictable as they are, the visitors yielded to a 81-run loss in the opening T20I encounter, on account of a gloomy display of batting.
