WI vs NZ, T20 World Cup 2024: Date, Time, Venue, Head to Head, Pitch, Weather Report, Playing XI, Squad and Live Streaming Details. West Indies, the two-time champions, will qualify for the Super 8s of the T20 World Cup in 2024 if they beat New Zealand in match 26. The match will played on Thursday, June 13 at Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Tarouba in Trinidad and Tobago.

Rovman Powell’s team is in high spirits after hammering Uganda by 134 runs while New Zealand led by Kane Williamson will be seeking quick redemption having lost to Afghanistan by 84 runs during the first game. Many anticipated that New Zealand and the West Indies would dominate Group C. But things have changed, and Afghanistan seems to be the team to beat after they bowled out the Kiwis for 75 in pursuit of 160. The Windies ended with a five-wicket win against Papua New Guinea before thumping Uganda while defending 173.

The 2007 T20 World Cup is the ninth time New Zealand and West Indies will participate. West Indies twice became champion while New Zealand was runner-up in 2021. Before the tournament began, analysts and fans alike considered both teams as favourites. They will play against each other for the 20th time in the T20 format and first at the Tarouba venue, which is very interesting. Below are the head-to-head figures for WI vs NZ:
