WI vs NZ 2nd ODI: West Indies and New Zealand will be taking on each other in the second ODI of the three-match series at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Friday. West Indies have taken an early lead after winning the first ODI by 5 wickets. West Indies put on a brilliant show with the ball in the game as they bundled New Zealand out for just 190 runs in the first innings.

Akeal Hosein ran through New Zealand’s batting unit as he accounted for the wickets of Guptill (24), Allen (25), and Conway (4). Both the openers got starts but fell prey to some superb bowling from the West Indies spinner.

Williamson looked good for his 34 off 50 balls but couldn’t convert that into a big score. Later, the likes of Latham (12) and Daryl Mitchell (20) also went back to the hut cheaply as New Zealand never managed to stitch a big partnership. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals and, therefore, the Blackcaps were restricted to a very below-par total.

As for the West Indies bowling attack, the likes of Akeal Hosein and Alzarri Joseph both starred with the ball, picking three wickets each. Both will be the players to watch out for in the next game. Holder claimed two wickets for 39 runs in 8 overs.

West Indies won the 1st ODI

In response, West Indies chased down the score with 5 wickets in hand. Opener Kyle Mayers (6) went back to the hut early but Shamarh Brooks played yet another outstanding match-winning knock of 79 runs in 91 balls, including 9 fours and 1 six.

Wickets fell in intervals but Brooks held firm at one end and helped the team win the game. Boult cleaned him up in the 33rd over but the game was all but over by then. West Indies would be keen to replicate a similar performance on Friday and seal the series. However, you expect New Zealand to come back stronger.
