NZ vs WI Today Match Prediction :
New Zealand will face off West Indies in the first Test match in Hamilton from December 3, 2020. After winning the T20I series New Zealand will look to transform that form into this series to gain some important World Test Championship points. On the other hand, West Indies after a disappointing T20I series will look to start fresh and will be eager to do much better in this series.
Here we are going to discuss strengths and weakness of New Zealand as well as of West Indies and will also make our NZ vs WI Today Match Prediction
New Zealand’s strength is their bowling attack of Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner and Kyle Jamieson who are really very dangerous on these home green pitches and have the ability to bundle out opposition for low totals. In the batting they have Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls who have been top class in this format for a long time.
On the other hand, West Indies’ strength is also their bowling attack of Jason Holder, Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel who have been very good for the last two years and on these green pitches Holder and Roach should enjoy their bowling.
New Zealand don’t have much weakness if we talk about home Test conditions but still their opening pair isn’t settled and also they don’t have a proper spinner of this format.
On the other hand, West Indies’ weakness is their batting as the whole batting line up have struggled and none of their batsmen average over 40 in this format so batting is the area where West Indies need to work on.
Here we are going to discuss both New Zealand and West Indies’s playing combination and probable playing XIs who will be useful for making NZ vs WI Dream11 Team

NZ vs WI Today Match Prediction :
Here we are going to discuss about a few players from both sides who can be very good picks for NZ vs WI Dream 11 Prediction teams
Kane Williamson : The captain of New Zealand is their best batsman in this format. Over the years he has been very consistent and should start his home season on a bright note and he has over 6000 runs with an average of 50 and 21 hundreds in this format.
Jason Holder : West Indies’ captain has been good in this format. With his swing bowling he will be useful on these green pitches and currently he has over 100 wickets at 26 plus and he is also a handy batsman.
Tim Southee : He had a good Test series against India earlier this year, has a lot of experience and once again he will be a key bowler on these pitches against a team whose batting line up isn’t that strong.
Kemar Roach : Another good pace bowler for these New Zealand conditions. He has been consistent for the past two years. Has taken more than 200 wickets at 27 plus and in this series he will be the main bowler from West Indies.
