Former Black Cap on how we are faring at the World Cup

ICC World Cup 2019 Match 29 West Indies vs New Zealand Match Prediction Who Will Win Today

The Black Caps head south to Birmingham to lie in wait for Pakistan on Wednesday (9.30pm NZT), a happy, tight-knit unit back atop the table and a semifinal berth already theirs.

West Indies cricket went through huge upheavals after the team cut short their tour of India in 2014 due to a payment dispute between the players and the board.

Carlos Brathwaite's incredible knock of 101 (82) would certainly go down as one of the best knocks in a losing case in World Cups. Not even the New Zealanders would say who was going to bowl the last over of Saturday's game.

Said Neesham: "I knew he didn't get it off the bat".

Ultimately, it was an innings symptomatic of West Indies' performances in this World Cup - exciting in parts but just not consistent enough.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed that the New Zealand team were fined for the offense.

"Initially I thought it was going to be quite a way inside the rope". Trent Boult, running around at wide long on completed a good catch to ensure a memorable victory for their side.

After one win from six games, including three very narrow defeats, West Indies must beat No. 2-ranked India, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan to have any chance of reaching the semifinals. Why not? He'd belted five sixes earlier in the innings. I just wanted to get it up around his shoulders and chin and take a bit of pace off it with my wrist.

In reply, West Indies started badly and were 20 for two at one stage.

Aditi Ashok Misses Cut at Women's PGA Championship; Hannah leads
Women's Open and AIG Women's British Open. "I gave myself a lot of opportunities, which I hadn't been doing lately, Armour said". The 22-year-old admitted the final round would be a big day for her, but believed she would be able to control her nerves.

That's the thing with this side. Ferguson has 11 wickets in his name, including a 4-wicket haul. Not only that but their much vaunted batting which piled up a mammoth 421 against New Zealand in a warm-up game in Bristol last month, has also failed to spark.


"Unfortunately it didn't, they probably had one of the better fielders in the world down there". Against the Windies, he was back in action.

Then there's the skipper.

From there, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor reigned in any attacking instincts to halt the momentum of West Indies - after the opening Powerplay, New Zealand were 30/2.

"My thinking was to still watch the ball, still react, and if it's not a ball to get a six off to try to get a single".

It was nearly a fairytale innings in a must-win World Cup game.

"Obviously heartbreaking to get so close but not get over the line", Brathwaite said.

Pacemen Oshane Thomas and Sheldon Cottrell have also impressed with their pace and swing in English conditions and Bishop is more than happy with the talent on tap, saying numerous players are relatively inexperienced.
