This afternoon the Blackcaps take on the West Indies at Bay Oval in the second game of the three-match T20 International series.

 

New Zealand won the first T20 International of this series by five wickets and they are leading this series by 1-0 with two matches to go.

 

While the hosts are one victory away to secure their series win, the visitors must have to win both the remaining two matches to claim this T20I series.

 

It’s a cloudy day with cloud increasing, and the rain during the morning is clearing away this afternoon as winds turn southwest. The temperature should reach an expected high of 22 degrees around 2pm.

 

The back-to-back games at Bay Oval means that spectators can purchase their Sunday game ticket and gain entry into the Monday night event for free.
