Uphill Task for New Zealand

The Black Caps would be well aware of the fact that they need the top order to get big runs under his belt. The opener Devon Conway will have to play a long and effective inning for the team as most likely he will have to play the role of anchor. At the same time, he has a knack for playing long & effective innings for the team.

A lot will depend on how Tom Latham fires as in the absence of Kane Williamson, he will have to guide the batters in the tricky phase of middle overs. There are chances that New Zealand may promote Glenn Phillips up the order as he can play a breezy cameo for the team.
