New Zealand: A chance at redemption at World Cup

Essentially sports presents a SWOT Analysis for the kiwis for the World Cup

New Zealand World Cup 15 Men Squad:

Brendon McCullum(captain), Grant Elliot, Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Ross Taylor, Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Mitchell McClenaghan, Kyle Mills, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Corey Anderson, Nathan McCullum, Daniel Vettori, Luke Ronchi( wicketkeeper).


If one ever had to bet on New Zealand to clinch the World cup title, this would probably be the best time to do so.

Taking a close look at the team, the batting seems to be very stable. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor have been rock solid, scoring runs in almost every match. The experienced campaigner Martin Guptil, together with the very fierce Brendon McCullum, give the team a quick fire start. To add to that, Nathan McCullum, Corey Anderson and the keeper batsman Luke Ronchi, can score quickly towards the end of the innings, propelling their score.

Similar to their batting, their bowling attack, though not very menacing, seems very effective. Tim Southee, Trent Boult and Kyle Mills are the spearheads of their bowling team and have been performing really well lately. Daniel Vettori comes as the perfect spinning option with them, along with Nathan McCullum, who can roll his arm over when required.

On paper, the team appears to be really equitable and their emphatic series victory over Sri Lanka in the ongoing ODI series and series victories at home against Pakistan and India in the recent past have given them the perfect momentum to head into the world cup.
