The Kiwis may acquire Henry Nicholls, supplanting Colin Munro, who has blown a touch hot and cold in the ICC Cricket World Cup. Martin Guptill likewise struggled after his fifty in the first match. Skipper Kane hasn’t been impulsive in his strokeplay and taken as much time as necessary in getting his eye in. Ross Taylor is in stunning form, and the right-hand batsman is relied upon to be a key player in the forthcoming match.
Tom Latham, coming back from finger damage, will be quick to get a decent score added to his repertoire. James Neesham picked his first ODI fifer last time and would be high on certainty. Colin de Grandhomme is the other all-rounder while Santner needs to assume his job too. Lockie Ferguson’s pace is an X-factor for the Kiwis. Trent Boult and Matt Henry are destined to share the new balls.
