On Thursday, June 13, a group stage match of the T20 World Cup will take place. The game will commence according to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Dailysports analysts have prepared a forecast for this encounter.

West Indies

One of the premier teams in contemporary T20 cricket, the West Indies currently ranks fourth in the overall team standings. The players for the West Indies team are selected from fifteen Caribbean national states and territories. Notably, this team has advanced from the group stage six times out of eight attempts. Additionally, they secured bronze medals in 2009 and 2014, and claimed gold in 2012 and 2016.

Regarding the current tournament, the West Indies have had an impressive start to the World Cup. In their first match, they triumphed over Papua New Guinea with a score of 137/5 to 136/8. In their next game, they thrashed Uganda by 134 runs. After two matches, the West Indies have accumulated four points and hold the second position in Group C. A victory against New Zealand would guarantee their advancement to the next round of the T20 World Cup.

New Zealand

The New Zealanders are also among the world’s elite teams. Presently, they are ranked fifth in the T20 team standings. However, they have never won the World Cup. Throughout their history, they have reached the final only once, where they were defeated by Australia. Besides this, New Zealand has secured three bronze medals, in 2007, 2016, and 2022.

This World Cup has not started well for New Zealand. In their opening game, they faced Afghanistan and suffered a crushing defeat by 84 runs. Consequently, New Zealand currently has zero points, trailing the playoff zone by four points. With three matches remaining, they must secure three victories to have any hope of advancing to the playoffs.

Interesting facts about the match and head-to-head history

  • The last encounter between New Zealand and the West Indies was in 2022, where New Zealand emerged victorious by five wickets.
  • The West Indies are currently on an impressive winning streak, having won seven consecutive matches.

West Indies vs New Zealand Prediction

New Zealand must win this game if they hope to contend for a playoff spot, but their current form is not promising. In their last ten matches, New Zealand has lost eight times and won twice. The West Indies are playing much better and are favored to win according to bookmakers. I agree with this assessment and will bet on the West Indies to win with odds of 1.75.
