Coach: Gary Stead
Captain: Kane Williamson
New Zealand’s success over South Africa took them to nine from their opening five games as they stay only one of two teams that stay unbeaten and certainty will be high coming into this conflict against West Indies who they will try to beat and ultimately eliminate from contention.
Captain Kane Williamson was the superstar in that match as his unbeaten century guided them to triumph when the rest of the top five largely battled against the South African bowling attack on a troublesome pitch and they should improve and bolster Williamson more.
Both all-rounder Jimmy Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme played key roles in offering help to Williamson and made strong contributions themselves with the bat and the probability is that they name an unchanged team once again for this match.

Captain: Jason Holder
West Indies are coming off an enormously baffling defeat at the hands of Bangladesh last break as they failed to defend 321/8 as their all out pace attack attempted to take wickets on a decent Taunton pitch as they were ultimately 40-50 runs short.
Andre Russell figured out how to bowl six overs in spite of his knee issue however they stay short on an elective bowling option with Chris Gayle’s occasional spin being used with no genuine achievement so it would be nothing unexpected if Russell was waited for Kemar Roach possibly here who will be ready to get through a full ten overs.
With only three points from their opening five matches, this is a must-win match for the Windies and they can wave any expectations of a top four place farewell with a defeat here so they will be extremely motivated at Old Trafford.

There is plenty on the line at Old Trafford as only a success will suffice for the Windies as they face an unbeaten New Zealand team. Their batting has failed to click totally up until this point however it was their bowling that given them a chance to down against Bangladesh. Other than in their one triumph over Pakistan, they have failed to create a total performance all round and they will need significant contributions from seven or eight of their players here.
