Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: New Zealand Tour of West Indies 2022 - 1st ODI - 17th August, 2022
The 1st ODI of the New Zealand Tour of West Indies 2022 will take place between West Indies and New Zealand on the 17th of August, 2022 at the Kensington Oval, Bridgetown.
Current ODI Form West Indies:
West Indies have been in a terrible ODI form in the recent times.
They lost to India by 3-0 in a 3 match ODI series that took place in July 2022. Prior to that, they were clean swept by Bangladesh in a 3 match ODI series. Pakistan also made a clean sweep against West Indies in a 3 match ODI series that took place in June this year.
The last T20I win against New Zealand will definitely take the team's confidence to a higher ground ahead of the 3 match ODI series.
Players to look forward to in West Indies:
1. Brandon King- King has performed very well in the recent times for West Indies. He is a match winner and if he gets going, the opposition teams find it hard to stop the flow of runs.
2. Akeal Hosein - He is a brilliant left arm off spinner who bowls with a lot of brain. He not only provides breakthroughs at important times but also applies a break on the scoring rate.
Current ODI Form New Zealand:
New Zealand have been in brilliant form in the ODI format. They won a one off ODI against Scotland last month. Prior to that, they won a 3 match ODI series against Ireland by 3-0. Netherlands were also beaten by New Zealand by 3-0 in April this year.
Players to look forward to in New Zealand:
1. Kane Williamson - The skipper is making a comeback in the ODI format and his importance in the New Zealand white ball setup can't be ignored. He will play a key role for the Kiwis in the upcoming series against West Indies.
2. Lockie Ferguson- He has performed very well in the recent times and will play an important role for New Zealand in the ODI series against West Indies.
