Current T20I Form West Indies and New Zealand:
New Zealand have beaten the home side West Indies in the first T20I of the 3 match series by 13 runs.
New Zealand batted first and posted a competitive total of 185 for 5 in 20 overs. Devon Conway started off very well and smashed 43 in 29 balls. He laid the foundation for a big total. Skipper Kane Williamson also played fabulously and scored 47 in 33 balls. He hit 4 fours and 2 sixes during his knock. The other middle order batters couldn't do much damage and New Zealand were staring at a total less than 170. However, James Neesham had different ideas in his mind. He smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground and made 33 not out in 15 balls to take New Zealand past the 180 run mark to 185 for 5 in 20 overs.
During the chase, West Indies got off to a terrible start and lost 4 wickets for just 49 runs. Shamarh Brooks fought hard and scored 42 but he took 43 deliveries for his innings which hampered the run rate. The lower middle order of West Indies including the likes of Jason Holder, Rovman Powell, Romario Shepherd and Odean played with fire and instilled a glimmer of hope for a successful chase. Shepherd made 31 off 16 balls and Odean Smith scored 27 off 12 balls. However, these batters also failed to take West Indies over the line as their team fell short by 13 runs in the end.
