The West Indies will look to bring their campaign back on track when they take on the high-flying Kiwis tomorrow at the Old Trafford. New Zealand would be eyeing to maintain their winning streak in this World Cup and take the top spot in the points table. Meanwhile, West Indies have to win all their remaining games if they want to stand any chance of staying alive in this tournament. The Blackcaps, who have been the most consistent ODI team over the last few years, look a formidable side with all the players chipping in with valuable contributions leading to the team’s victory. However, the Windies have also played some exhilarating cricket in this World Cup but they lack consistency in their performances which has often led to their demise.
