New Zealand to take on Zimbabwe

Express May 04, 2010

GUYANA: A confident New Zealand will be eyeing a Super Eight pass when they take on Zimbabwe in a Group B match of World Twenty20 at the Providence stadium today.

The Black Caps pulled off a thrilling two-wicket win with a ball to spare against Sri Lanka in their opening match on Friday. New Zealand strike bowler Shane Bond said it is unlikely that they will tinker with the line-up that clinched a victory in the opening match.

Referring to all-rounder Andy Blignauht's return to the side after five years, Bond says Zimbabwe have a lot of experienced players back in the side.

The low and slow pitches in the Caribbean will force the Black Caps to make the most of their spin options.

In today's second match, England have a glimmer of hope and a chance to progress to the Super-Eights with their clash against Ireland.
