Match highlights, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Match 29: New Zealand overcome Carlos Brathwaite heroics to beat West Indies

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Match 29 of ICC Cricket Cup 2019 between New Zealand and West Indies at Old Trafford, Manchester on Saturday.

The moment of truth is here for the West Indies. They are wounded and low on confidence. Following their seven-wicket loss to Bangladesh, a glum Jason Holder admitted West Indies face a tough task to reach the semi-final of the ICC World Cup 2019 as they need to win all their remaining games to stay alive. With three losses, it is a slim chance, but an opportunity none the less.

What a start it was for the West Indies, with their fast bowlers flooring Pakistan for 105, setting the base for a comfortable seven-wicket win. But ever since, they haven’t been able to replicate that performance, despite scoring 321 for 8 against Bangladesh. West Indies are a far better unit that this. They have a fresh, promising bowling attack and an equally fearful batting line-up. But somehow, both haven’t clicked together.
