New Zealand rocked the cricket world it what was a remarkable display of Twenty20 style batting by Corey Anderson and Jesse Ryder in particular. The West Indies will be without Darren Sammy after their humiliating loss and their bowlers will need to regroup quickly which won’t be easy after the thrashing they all received. The New Zealand batsmen will look to start from where they left off even if the full 50 overs are bowled which will put more pressure on the West Indies’ bowlers to bowl well. If the New Zealand team get off to a flyer Sunil Narine will have to step up and bring his Twenty20 expertise into action and tie down the likes of Ryder, Taylor, McCullum and Anderson.
