Sabina Park: Jul 5, 2012

 

West Indies will like to bury all the loss in the last few months and aim to come back as a strong team in the first One-Day International (ODI) in five-match One-day International (ODI) series against New Zealand.

 

Against Australia earlier this year, the West Indies lost the opening ODI before fighting back to take a 2-1 lead in the series, which eventually finished in a 2-2 stalemate after the third match was tied.

 

In the five-match series against India late last year, the Windies lost the first two matches before winning the third but eventually lost the series 1-4.

 

The scenario was repeated when Pakistan and India toured the Caribbean last summer as the hosts lost the first three matches of both five-match series before finishing strongly with victories.

 

However, the Windies will be seeking to use the momentum from winning last weekend’s Twenty20 doubleheader in Florida, to draw first blood against the Black Caps.

 

West Indies skipper Darren Sammy said his side would be focussed on building on that performance.

 

The West Indies enter the series looking to overhaul New Zealand who are one point above them in seventh in the international one-day rankings.

 

However, they will need to reverse their record against the Kiwis as they have not won a bi-lateral series against them in 10 years. 

 

For the second straight series, the Windies have been labelled as favourites to win but talismanic opener Chris Gayle cautioned the Caribbean side against complacency.

 

Kane Williamson will be the New Zealan’s youngest ODI captain, when leads the Black Caps in place of the injured Ross Taylor.

 

Teams: 

 

West Indies (Probable): Chris Gayle, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith, Marlon Samuels, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Denesh Ramdin(wk), Darren Sammy(c), Sunil Narine, Ravi Rampaul, Fidel Edwards. 

 

New Zealand (Probable): Rob Nicol, Martin Guptill, BJ Watling (wk), Dean Brownlie, Kane Williamson (c), James Franklin, Nathan McCullum, Doug Bracewell, Michael Bates, Ronnie Hira, Tim Southee.
