Mentioned below is the top team betting tip from the WI vs NZ head-to-head contest.
West Indies delivered a fantastic performance in the 1st ODI against New Zealand. With good coordination and strong captaincy, they won that match very easily. In the first ODI, West Indies won the toss and invited New Zealand to bat first. After losing their first wicket at 41 New Zealand faced a top order collapse. After that they only managed to put up a total of 190 in their allotted 50 overs. Alzarri Joseph & Akeal Hosein from West Indies delivered an excellent performance as they took 6 wickets together. With the help of Shamarh Brooks' amazing 76, West Indies won that match by 5 wickets. But if we look into their head-to-head clashes in recent years New Zealand is leading that chart by 4-1. But if we consider their overall face-off, they played 66 matches together, and West Indies won 31 of them. At the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, West Indies faced New Zealand two times on this ground and they won both the games. If you look into the overall status of this venue, West Indies played 37 matches here, and they had 17 victories. Although the Kiwis have more number of victories in their last five games in comparison to the Windies, the tables have turned now. After losing the first two T20I matches, the hosts have bounced back pretty well and won the third and the final T20I game of the series and also picked up a 1-0 lead in the three match ODI series. Having said that, scoot over to 1XBET and place your bet on West Indies at odds of 1.832 from the WI vs NZ head-to-head contest.

This 33-year-old right-handed batsman is going to be our first pick in this forthcoming match. In full flow, Shamarh Brooks is all elegance. He drives mercilessly through the off-side and often finishes his flicks standing on one leg. His comeback for Barbados was as boisterous as his exit had been tame. In 2015, Brooks made 124 against Windward Islands in his first innings back, followed it up with two more hundreds in the same year, and was immediately brought back in the West Indies' plans with a Board President's XI call-up against Australia. He made his debut in ODI cricket in 2022. Since then, he has played 19 innings and made 692 runs averaging 38.44. He has a century and 4 half centuries under his belt too. Speaking of his List A career, he made 1665 runs from 55 games averaging 32.64 which is laced with a century and 10 half centuries as well. In the first ODI of this ongoing series, he made a fantastic 79 off 91 deliveries and helped his side seal the victory. His recent scores in ODI cricket read 79, 0, 35, 4, 6 & 4.
