WI vs NZ T20 record head to head: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the first WI vs NZ T20I.

The first T20I of New Zealand’s tour of West Indies 2022 will be played in Jamaica tonight. Last team to visit West Indies for their ongoing international summer season, New Zealand will be playing three T20Is and as many ODIs within a 12-day period.

Coming on the back of a 1-4 series loss against India, West Indies would be really wanting to get their act together in what is going to be their last home series before traveling to Australia for another series right before ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

New Zealand, on the other hand, have reached the Caribbean after a successful tour of Europe especially in white-ball formats. Readers must note that the Black Caps had won all their 11 limited-overs matches against Ireland, Scotland and Netherlands.

Set to face each other in a T20I after more than 20 months, West Indies and New Zealand’s last encounter was abandoned due to rain in Mount Maunganui. That being said, the hosts had ended up on the winning side of a three-match T20I series.
