New Zealand will face off West Indies in the third and last T20I at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on Monday, November 30. New Zealand have already won the series with back to back wins.
New Zealand has outplayed West Indies in the series so far. In the second T20I, New Zealand's batsmen especially Glenn Phillips and David Conway scored plenty of runs and they will look to continue their form and the likes of Tim Seifert and Martin Guptill too will look to do something after failing in the first two matches. In the bowling they will be without Tim Southee and Kyle Jamieson and in their absence Lockie Ferguson, Doug Bracewell and Hamish Bennett need to do the job.
On the other hand, West Indies must be disappointed with their performance as they had a good batting unit but couldn't perform. The likes of Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Brandon King and Rovman Powell have been poor and it's the last chance for them to show their skills. In the bowling Sheldon Cottrell and Oshane Thomas have been good but they aren't getting good support from others.
