The Black Caps have persisted with Colin Munro despite him failing a number of times. It seems as if it’s a matter of time before they axe the southpaw and bring in Henry Nicholls. To add to their worry, Martin Guptill hasn’t got going and has looked out of sorts as well. For the last few matches, it’s become rather mandatory for Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor to rescue their team from the precarious positions.

Tom Latham has looked hapless in the middle after the layoff. The relieving aspect for the Kiwis will be Colin de Grandhomme and James Neesham’s form with the bat. In the bowling department, Lockie Ferguson has been the standout with 15 wickets. Matt Henry has gone wicketless in the last four matches and he may have to make away for leg-spinner Ish Sodhi. Trent Boult has been economical but needs to make breakthroughs.
