2019 World Cup

Key issues facing New Zealand and our prediction

Key issues facing New Zealand and our prediction

New Zealand go into the World Cup facing issues with their batting line-up.

Their openers have been in woeful form since quite sometime. In the last 15 ODIs, they have only added 180 runs.

Also the batting is too dependent on Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor.

If they solve the problems, then one can expect the Kiwis to reach the semi-final stage.
