NZ vs WI Dream1 Fantasy Predictions: The 1st T20I of the three-match series between New Zealand and West Indies will be played at the Eden Park in Auckland on Friday, November 27.
Team New Zealand has been away from international cricket since March 13, when they played Australia in the opening ODI before the series was cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
West Indies, on the other hand, made their comeback in international cricket earlier this year when they toured England for the three-match Test series. However, they have not played any white-ball fixture since March 6, when they faced Sri Lanka.
The Kiwis will miss the service of their senior players Kane Williamson and Trent Boult as they have been given rest after the conclusion of Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). Tim Southee will lead New Zealand in Williamson’s absence.
Devon Conway and Kyle Jamieson will be the new faces in the T20I squad. Conway is uncapped at the highest level while Jamieson is yet to play a T20I. He made an immediate impact against India in Test and ODI series earlier this year.
Talking about West Indies, the team will miss the service of their top players Andre Russell and Dwayne Bravo due to different reasons. Kieron Pollard will continue to lead the West Indies and will have Nicholas Pooran as his deputy.

NZ vs WI 1st T20I Weather & Pitch Report
It will be cloudy for the whole day in Auckland with low chances of rain. The temperature will hover around 18 to 19 degree Celsius.
The pitch in Auckland is decent enough for batting. The straight shorter boundaries will allow the batsman to go for big hits. Spinners will also play a decent role as they have picked seven wickets in the last three matches. Any score above 170-175 will be considered as par.
