In Game 13 of the Road Safety World Series T20 2022, the West Indies Legends take on the New Zealand Legends at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Dehradun on Wednesday 21 September.
West Indies are having a good campaign, winning two of their three games, their second game being washed away by rain. They largely beat England in their previous outing.
Bowling first, the West Indies bowlers did a fine job – limiting England to 156-5, with Krishmar Santokie and Sulieman Benn grabbing two wickets each. A superb 120-point opening stand between Dwayne Smith (73) and William Perkins (57) laid a solid foundation for them to chase the tally in 18th. West Indies will look to repeat that performance against the Kiwis on Wednesday.
New Zealand, meanwhile, lost to South Africa in their opening game of the competition. They bounced back to beat Bangladesh in their next match before their next clash against India was washed away by rain.
Only 5.5 overs were possible as India, beating first, made it 49-1 before the rain arrived. No further play was possible and the two teams shared one point each. The Kiwis looked good against Bangladesh and will look to play the same way here.
