New Zealand host the West Indies in the 2nd Test at the Basin Reserve on Friday. It was a huge victory for the hosts in the 1st Test and the Windies will be desperate to show improvement in the 2nd Test. 

Kane Williamson scored a career-high in the previous Test and will certainly look to back that up in Wellington.

New Zealand Form


New Zealand dominated the 1st Test against the West Indies at Seddon Park to take a 1-0 lead in the series.

The Black Caps were sent in to bat on what was a very green wicket but the visiting bowlers couldn’t make the conditions count. Tom Latham scored 86 while Kane Williamson was magnificent as he scored a career-high 251 runs.

New Zealand declared on 519 runs and never needed to bat again. Tim Southee took 4-35 as the hosts dismissed the Windies for a paltry 138 runs. The follow-on was enforced. While the West Indies went slightly better in their second innings, their total of 247 runs was not enough to ensure New Zealand batted again.

The Black Caps won the match by an innings and 134 runs, their biggest ever win over the West Indies.

New Zealand Team News


New Zealand may look to bring in a spin bowling option on a pitch that is unlikely to offer the seam bowlers quite as much assistance. Will Young should get another opportunity to open the batting despite failing to impress in the 1st Test.

West Indies Form


The West Indies had very little to smile about in their innings and 134-run defeat at Seddon Park in the 1st Test. It all started well by winning the toss on a very green pitch, but the Windies bowlers failed to deliver on what was a bowling paradise.

They allowed New Zealand to amass a huge total of 519-7 declared. The bowlers just never managed to hit the right length on a consistent enough basis and they were made to pay.

The West Indies then got bowled out for a paltry 138 runs and the follow-on was enforced. The second innings didn’t start well either as the visitors found themselves at 89-6 but Jermaine Blackwood and Alzarri Joseph managed to put up a fight.

Blackwood scored 104 and Joseph 86 runs as they steered the West Indies to 247 runs. It wasn’t enough but it did provide some light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

West Indies Team News


The West Indies have lost key fast bowler Kemar Roach and wicketkeeper/batsman Shane Dowrich for the second Test. Roach and Dowich have both been withdrawn for personal reasons.

This opens up the opportunity Joshua Da Silva to make his debut behind the stumps in the absence of Dowrich.

New Zealand vs West Indies Head to Head


New Zealand have won six of their last seven Test matches against the West Indies. The last time they met over five days was in 2017 where the Black Caps won by 240 runs in Hamilton.

Kane Williamson is paying $3.50 to score a 100+ runs in the match while Kraigg Brathwaite is offering odds off $8.00 for the West Indies in the same market.

New Zealand vs West Indies Match Up


New Zealand were superb in the 1st Test with Kane Williamson in a dominant mood. The key to the visitors will be removing the New Zealand captain early on but the bowlers will have to find the right length on a more regular basis.
