NZ vs WI Dream11 9th Warm-up Match Prediction | New Zealand vs Windies ICC World Cup 2019

New Zealand will be eyeing to continue their good run when they face off Windies at County Ground, Bristol for the second warmup game of ICC CWC 19. The BlackCaps thumped India by 6 wickets in the first game and will be featuring with the same confidence against Windies- who are looking low on confidence.

Windies first warmup game against South Africa ended in a no result after rain played spoilsport. They will be eager to return to winning ways as the Carribean side hasn’t tasted success in the last couple of games. They lost the tri-series final in Ireland against Bangladesh and also faced a drubbing in the unofficial warmup game against Australia. While C Gayle, N Pooran and a couple of more players were missing out from the final, Windies will be hoping to start in style.

The match will start at 03:00 PM IST.

Chris Gayle- who missed the tri-series final against Bangladesh is in a great run.  In last 5 innings, Gayle has scored 73, 135, 50, 162 and 77 at an average of 99.4. He is a must-have pick in batters

Jason Holder and Andre Russell will be the key all-rounders in the side. Andre Russell had a terrific run with the bat in IPL 2019 while Jason Holder was key performers from his side in the English domestic tournament. Both will be looking to carry their form.
