Colin Munro and Glenn Phillips are in good form with the bat as they posted half-centuries in the first match to help post 187 runs batting first. The batting unit has players like Martin Guptill, who is making a comeback after injury, Tom Bruce, youngster Anaru Kitchen, who shone in the domestic circuit recently, and others like Santner and Bracewell, who played useful knocks with the bat.
The pacers did very well to get the Windies all-out for 140 in the same match; Seth Rance and Tim Southee claimed 3 wickets apiece while Dough Bracewell dismissed 2 opponents giving away only 5 runs per over. Spinners Santner and Ish Sodhi also took a wicket each and they won the match by 47 runs.
The Kiwis have a well-balanced team of batsmen and bowlers and will try to keep their winning momentum going to wrap up another clean whitewash on Wednesday.
With a target of 188 to chase in the first T20 match, players like Chris Gayle, Chadwick Walton, Jason Mohammad and Rovman Powell failed to fire and they were lost at sea. Andre Fletcher scored run-a-ball 27 while Brathwaite and Ashley Nurse tried to revive the innings by posting 20+ runs each; Jerome Taylor also put up a heroic display by scoring 20 off 12 deliveries but it was too late to cross the finish line. They were all-out for 140 and would try to redeem themselves with a better performance here.
Earlier in the match, the bowlers struggled to restrict the opponents although spinners Samuel Badree and Ashley Nurse took a wicket each in an economical manner. Speedsters Kesrick Williams, Jerome Taylor and Carlos Brathwaite provided regular breakthroughs taking 5 wickets between them, but they couldn’t stop the hosts from posting a challenging total.
The Windies have had a poor run on their New Zealand tour, and despite having several match-winners on the squad, they haven’t been able to change their fortunes with a win. This being the last match, we could see the visitors trying to make a last-ditch attempt at registering a face-saving win.
