West Indies have a task on their hands, as they take on a formidable foe New Zealand in the first Twenty20 International (T20I) played at Roseaw. West Indies lost the Test series 21. But they have a different captain for the T20I series in Darren Sammy. New Zealand on other hand will look up to the skipper, Brendon McCullum to deliver the goods. It has to be remembered though that in the shortest format of the game, West Indies have been a force to reckon with. Catch the live Scorecard here.

 

Darren Bravo brings solidity to the line-up. Darren Sammy, Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard are expected to provide the fireworks down the order.

Pollard, Sammy and Russell l can chip in with wickets too. It is expected to be a flat deck and batsmen from both units should enjoy batting on the strip. Catch the live blog here
