T20 World Cup 2024, WI vs NZ 26th Match, Group C, Prediction, Pitch Report, Playing XI


Preview: The 26th match of the T20 World Cup 2024 will take place on Thursday, June 13, at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad between co-hosts West Indies (WI) and New Zealand (NZ).

At Providence Stadium in Guyana, the team captained by Rovman Powell won their opening two tournament matches against Uganda and Papua New Guinea. In their opening encounter with Papua New Guinea, Powell and Co. went through the opposing batting order, limiting them to 136/8. They then chased down the score and won the match with five wickets and one over remaining.

West Indies scored a total of 173/5 when batting first in their most recent match against Uganda. They won the match thanks to their bowling, particularly to Akeal Hosein, who claimed five wickets and assisted his team in scoring 134 runs. Their batsmen did not win the match.

Conversely, this upcoming game will be New Zealand’s second match in the tournament. Notably, chasing a goal of 160 runs, the BlackCaps were bowled out for 75 runs in their opening game against Afghanistan, causing a major shock. In the end, the Afghan team won the match by an enormous 84 runs.

Venue: Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad

Date & Time: Thursday, June 13, 6:00 AM

Pitch Report: The Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad has one of the slower surfaces in the Caribbean because of its reputation for being a slow pitch. It is usually difficult for the batsmen to score a significant total on this surface. It helps for the spinners to give the ball a rip because of the slow surface, which allows them to extract tremendous turn and bounce. The team batting first has won three of the seven matches that have taken place at this location, with the team batting second winning the other four. At this field, first-inning scores average 161 runs. The side that wins the coin flip will start bowling first.


West Indies (WI): Brandon King, Johnson Charles, Nicholas Pooran(wk), Roston Chase, Rovman Powell(c), Sherfane Rutherford, Andre Russell, Romario Shepherd, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie

New Zealand (NZ): Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Michael Bracewell, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Philips, Mark Chapman, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry
