The wait of 5 years is finally over! The World Cup is back after being postponed for a year and the hosts New Zealand take on West Indies in the opening game of the tournament.

VENUE: Bay Oval, Tauranga

If it’s New Zealand, the ball’s got to swing in the early phases of both innings. The average score at this venue in 12 games has been just 232 runs, but it should be a good batting track once the first 10 overs pass by in each innings.

If New Zealand bat first, one can expect scores in excess of 250. If West Indies bats first, then the score could be in the range of 190-230.

HEAD-TO-HEAD (Last 5 games):
NZ - 4 | WI - 1

PROBABLE XIs:

New Zealand: Suzie Bates, Sophie Devine (C), Amelia Kerr, Amy Satterthwaite (Vc), Maddy Green, Brooke Halliday, Katey Martin (Wk), Lea Tahuhu, Hayley Jensen, Jess Kerr, Hannah Rowe

West Indies: Deandra Dottin, Rashada Williams, Kycia Knight, Stafanie Taylor (C), Hayley Matthews, Shemaine Campbelle (Wk), Chedean Nation, Chinelle Henry, Anisa Mohammed, Shamilia Connell, Shakera Selman

MUST-HAVES:

New Zealand:
  • Amelia Kerr (Bat + Bowl)
  • Sophie Devine (Bat + Bowl)
  • Amy Satterthwaite (Bat + Bowl)
  • Jess Kerr (Bowl)

  • Shemaine Campbelle (WK)

X-FACTORS:
