In match 13 of the Road Safety World Series T20 2022, West Indies Legends will square off against New Zealand Legends at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Dehradun on Wednesday (September 21).
West Indies are having a good campaign, winning two of their three games, with their second fixture getting washed out due to rain. They beat England comprehensively in their previous outing.
Bowling first, the West Indies bowlers did a fine job – restricting England to 156-5, with Krishmar Santokie and Sulieman Benn grabbing two wickets apiece. A stunning 120-run opening stand between Dwayne Smith (73) and William Perkins (57) laid a solid foundation for them to chase down the total in the 18th over. West Indies will look to repeat that performance against the Kiwis on Wednesday.
New Zealand, meanwhile, lost to South Africa in their opening game of the competition. They bounced back to beat Bangladesh in their next game before their next clash against India was washed out due to rain.
Only 5.5 overs were possible, with India, batting first, reached 49-1 before rain arrived. No further play was possible, and both teams shared a point apiece. The Kiwis looked good against Bangladesh and will look to play in the same way here.
