West Indies in must-win tie against in-form New Zealand

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

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

Earlier, West Indies made a sensational start after Holder sent New Zealand, the 2015 losing finalists, into bat.

This is the 29th match in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

Brathwaite reached his hundred, from 80 balls, in the next over, leaving West Indies needing six to win.

In a game of centimetres, a few more would have meant a massive upset and a lifeline for the erratic but hugely talented West Indies whose playoff chances look gone.

New Zealand sit near the top of the table half way into the group stages and with good reason.

Williamson and Taylor, however, repaired the damage in style for a New Zealand side who have yet to lose at this World Cup.

Wicket-keeper: Tom Lathem, Shai Hope and Nicolas Pooran all are in good form and good options.

Somehow they keep winning these tight ones.

However, Brathwaite (102 from 82 balls) marshalled the tail superbly - and having shown incredible composure and intelligence to take the game deep - he unleashed a number of huge hits to get the West Indies to within six of victory only to hole out off Jimmy Neesham from the final ball of the penultimate over. He has not looked his best at all this tournament suffering issues with his knees and wrist.

Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman found to be in conflict of interest
The order means that players will have to choose either to be with IPL teams, cricket administration, coaching role or commentary. It is understood, the rule will apply irrespective of whether they are contracted with the BCCI or the broadcasters.

New Zealand kept giving him lives, too, in some near comical catching in the deep that will concern coach Gary Stead.

Gayle was first dropped on 15 when Boult floored a desperately hard chance off Matt Henry as the ball dropped over his shoulder.

West Indies' Chris Gayle was given some let-offs by New Zealand on his way to a blistering 87 off 84 balls.

That there was no cat thrown among the clays was in part due to the separation of third-wicket pair Chris Gayle and Shimron Hetmyer when the latter was flummoxed by a Lockie Ferguson slower ball. Ferguson was close behind on 3-52. A gem of a slower ball skittled Hetmyer then he nicked off captain Jason Holder immediately.

Gayle's luck ran out when he hoisted Colin de Grandhomme to the long-on boundary where Boult held a safe catch.

Defending champions Australia are now at the top spot with five wins from six matches while New Zealand occupy the second spot.

Cottrell was on target first ball with a delivery that thudded into the pads of Martin Guptill. After feasting on Sri Lanka's bowlers in game one the opening partnership is back to its shaky self from the home summer.

Williamson and Taylor took the Black Caps from 7/2 in the first over to 167/3 in the 35th over with Taylor dismissed for 69.

The first three balls all soared for six, Henry appeared helpless and Brathwaite took 25 runs off it all told, farming the strike for the start of the 49th, as he had done relatively successfully throughout the collection of 122 runs for the final three wickets.
