After winning a comprehensive 1-0 lead in the first game of the two-match series, New Zealand will play against the West Indies in the second game, which will start on December 11th. In the first match of the Test, with the bat in hand, New Zealand began the attack from the beginning.
Kane Williamson was the player in charge of leading the team during the only inning they batted in as he scored 251 runs off 412 deliveries, which happened to be his personal best performance. And what followed was a horrible time for the players of the West Indies as they batted in two consecutive innings, and still failed to get to the complete set for them by the Kiwis. The only way out of a series loss for the West Indies, going into this game, is that they can pull off a victory, as even a draw would get the New Zealanders a series win as the decider match stands to be this match.
During the early stages of the match, the weather in Wellington will be a little overcast, but conditions will change over time as the game progresses, with mainly clear skies coming in in the last few days. In the colder spectrum, which is about the mark of 17 degrees Celsius.
With the bowlers expected to enjoy the extra layer of grass over the surface, the pitch at the Basin Reserve should not be too different from the one in Hamilton. Although the new ball should have enough swing on offer, the additional bounce off the surface in this Test should benefit the likes of Neil Wagner and Shannon Gabriel.
Although the initial stages will be difficult, after having their eyes in the centre, the batsmen should feel at ease. With little rotation on offer, expect the pacers for both teams to run the show. The strategy for teams winning the toss in New Zealand was to bowl first which on Friday also shouldn’t change.
