New Zealand will host West Indies for the first Test of the two match-series at Seddon Park in Hamilton from tomorrow. The match will be played from December 3 to December 7 and it will commence at 3.30 am.
West Indies are in New Zealand to play three-match T20 series and two-game Test series. The Kiwis outperformed West Indies 2-0 in the T20 series. New Zealand will be trying to whitewash the Test series as well. On the other hand, the Jason Holder-led side will be trying to avenge the loss of the T20 series.
New Zealand appear to be a balanced team. Players like Devon Conway, James Neesham and Glenn Phillips perform with the bat, while the likes of Kylie Jamieson, Lockie Ferguson and Mitchell Santner support the bowling line-up.
On the other hand, West Indies players have not performed consistently. Neither their batsmen nor their bowlers lived up to the expectations in the T20 series. Kieron Pollard scored unbeaten-75 in the first T20 match against New Zealand. Their bowlers conceded too many runs in the T20 fixtures.
New Zealand have had a good record in the recent past in Test matches. They last played two Tests against India in February-March and won emerged victorious in both the matches.
West Indies went head to head against England in July in three-match Test series. They lost the series 1-2, winning only the first clash.
