West Indies vs New Zealand Head to Head Record in World Cup: The SportsRush present before you the Head to Head records for WI vs NZ.
The ninth warm-up match for the looming ICC Cricket World Cup will be played between West Indies and New Zealand at Bristol tomorrow. While New Zealand would be confident after defeating India comprehensively in their first warm-up match, West Indies would be eager to play a full match after their match against South Africa got washed out yesterday.
Before reaching England, New Zealand had whitewashed Bangladesh 3-0 at home before being defeated by India 1-4. On the contrary, West Indies are coming on the back of losing the final of the Ireland Tri-Nation Series against Bangladesh.

West Indies and New Zealand had last played an ODI around a year and a half ago. In what was the third and final ODI of the three-match series, New Zealand ended up registering a 66-run victory (D/L Method).
Stand-in New Zealand captain Tom Latham had won the toss and chose to bat after in a 23-over encounter. It was a 73-run partnership for the fourth wicket between Ross Taylor (47*) and Latham (37) which saw the hosts scoring 131/4.
In the second innings, Trent Boult and Matt Henry reduced the opposition to 9/5 in the fourth over. Struggling from the word go, the visitors ended up scoring 99/9 in 23 overs. Other than Boult (3) and Henry (2), spinners in Mitchell Santner (3) and Todd Astle (1) also contributed among the wickets.
